License Expiration: How to update or download the latest release of SAS University Edition

by SAS Employee DaniChiavegatto on ‎07-15-2015 10:02 AM - edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager (5,118 Views)

You open the SAS University Edition Information Center and see a license-expiration warning under the Notifications heading, like shown in the old screenshot below. What does it mean? It's your cue to update your copy of SAS University Edition by July 31 of whatever year it happens to be. Visit the SAS University Edition: Help Center [AT THIS LINK] for context and instructions.

Why keep SAS University Edition updated?

Keeping your copy current through regular updates keeps it working without interruption. That’s because updates include an authorization code that renews your license for up to another year. Fail to update your copy and SAS University Edition will stop working on July 31.


How to download a new copy of SAS University Edition

To resume using the software after your copy expires, you'll need to install a new one from our website.

I am trying to update my SAS University Edition but the download keeps failing. Please see photo attached below. I am connected to the internet which is why I find the message in the photo very odd.

Can anyone offer any suggestions or help? 

Thank you! :smileyhappy:

My problem is similar.  It updates but when it's time to apply the updates, it doesn't work.  Yesterday, I took two hours just clicking and re-clicking the update button but it still doesn't work.

I downloaded and installed a new copy. Everything worked fine but now I have a new URL and I can not access my code.I still can open the old URL with the old license. Can I move my old code to the new URL or do I have to download and upload every single file?

Hi @benschke, by asking your question in this old comment thread, few folks monitoring the forum will see it. Would you take a moment and post it as a new topic? Just go to the Analytics U Community home page  and hit "New Message." Meanwhile, I'm hunting for someone to help with this. Thank you for using University Edition and this forum!
