- you must already have SAS Enterprise Guide 4.22, which is part of the SAS 9.2 Maintenance 2 release (http://support.sas.com/software/maintenance/index.html ). If your version is "4.2" or "4.21", the hotfix application won't apply the changes.
- you must have installed SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 using the SAS software deployment wizard (SDW).
If you still experience problems with this, please contact SAS Technical Support.
Re: the EG 4.3 vs. 4.22 question -- EG 4.3 has several significant new features for the SAS programmer, including a program editor with syntax completion, code formatter, and code analysis. EG 4.2 was originally released in March 2009, 4.22 (maintenance for 4.2) came in September 2009. EG 4.3 is scheduled for summertime 2010 -- we're polishing it up right now!
From what I could see, the MIT documentation does not explain how to apply a hotfix to an existing Enterprise Guide installation...e.g. there is no Software Depot and no Base SAS for Windows on the PC, just EG.
The prompt is:
"To install maintenance, please enter the location of your SASHOME directory. This is the directory where you first installed SAS, and should contain a filename called sassw.config."
No sassw.config file exists under C:\Program Files\SAS. I found some info on this file at:
