SAS EG 5.1 has encountered a problem

Hi,

I get this of kind of error every day, several times when I use my SAS EG 5.1 version. I don't understand what that error means. I tried to figure it out, but I didn't found any information. Can someone tell me what this means and how that error should be eliminated.My operation system is Windows 7 and Running in WOW64 (32-bit subsystem): yes.


I would really appreciate the help.

This is something going awry with the project recovery feature.  Check the settings in Tools->Options, Project Recovery.  You can try increasing the interval for saving project work, and make sure the "Save location" is a local path that is stable (not a network location).

Also, make sure you have access permissions to the Recovery.xml file that is stored in that location (the location specified in your Tools->Options->Project Recovery->Save location).  For example, confirm that you can open it in a text editor.  Though I agree with Chris, it looks more like a possible network file storage issue.

Re: SAS EG 5.1 has encountered a problem

Hi,

 

Not exactly the same issue, but I noticed that Chris said to make sure not to use a network drive as a recovery location.  We use Citrix to host EG to our SAS Unix server and the local (virtuial) 'C:' drive contents are not guarnteed to carry forward to the next session.  It seemed that usig a network drive would solve this issue.  So, two questions:

 

  1. Why not use a network drive for auto recovery?
  2. What is the best practice for auto recover setings for EG when running in a Citrix environment, i.e., location, save interval?

Many Thanks!

 

Ken
