Getting multiple versions for profile & regstry files under My Documents\SAS My FIles\9.3

We have recently moved from SAS 9.1 to SAS 9.3. Some of our users are getting multiple versions for profile & regstry files under My
Documents\SAS My FIles\9.3. Have any one encountered similar issue in the past?

Hi Arodriguez - When I open multiple SAS sessions then it does not create multiple
Profile & Regstry versions. It is only happening with couple of users.
Generally, Our Users work on multiple SAS sessions.

When you open multiple SAS sessions ... the very 1st session gets the
exclusive write access to Profile & Regstry files. That's why you get
Warning Messages on other sessions as below:

WARNING: Unable to copy SASUSER registry to WORK registry. Because of this,

WARNING: you will not see registry customizations during this session.
