Windows compatibility center indicates that sas9 is compatible with 8.1.  It doesn't distinguish between the various releases.  According to the link that Haikuo provided, SAS doesn't provide support for 9.2 on Windows 8.1

Art, in Windows Compatibility Center, if I do a search on SAS, it shows SAS 9 as you said, but if I click again on the SAS 9 icon, it further shows version 9.3

SAS 9.3. installed nicely on my windows 8.1 machine, however the Enhanced Editor is not functional. Only the Editor works.

Hi Anca
I'm considering buying a windows 8 laptop to run SAS 9.3 on it.

Is your windows 8.1 a professional or enterprise version or just normal 8.1?

Which processor and how much RAM does your computer have?

Thanks for your help!
