Go to your home directory, search for the sasuser.vxx directory; in this directory delete the profile.sas7bcat file, it is most certainly damaged.

Re: Getting SAS Connection error

Your SASUSER.PROFILE catalog is corrupted. You can simply delete it as SAS will re-create it automatically.

Re: Getting SAS Connection error

The error reported in the SAS log:

Indicates the SASUSER profile files cannot be correctly read by SAS. The profile files are created or read by SAS every time the application is launched. Please do the following to delete the existing files so that SAS can recreate them on next startup:

1. Launch SAS and submit the following code:
proc options option = sasuser; run;
2. The output in the log will show you the location of the SASUSER profile on your machine, for example, the default location is as follows (where <UID> is your Windows user ID):
SASUSER=C:\Users\<UID>\Documents\My SAS Files\9.4
3. Navigate to the SASUSER path in a File Explorer window and delete the following files:
4. Close any open SAS sessions and launch a new session.
