SAS Enterprise Guide needs to close (SplitterDistance must be between Panel1MinSize and Width -...

Hi, 

 

I have been using SAS Enterprise Guide 7.12 in Citrix for about a month. All was fine until yesterday when I closed my citrix session and all the programs. After reopening everything again,  my program would not open. Instead the following message appeared:

"SAS Enterprise Guide needs to close". Below are the exception details. 

The solution in SAS support (http://support.sas.com/kb/43/655.html) won't work for me. I have no "4.3" folder. I only have a "7.1" folder but I don't have permissions to delete it. Here is what I have: C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASEnterpriseGuide\7.1

 

 

I'd appreciate your suggestions.

 

Thanks,

 

Claudia

Try deleting this file.  You should have access to it:

 

%APPDATA%\SAS\EnterpriseGuide\7.1\Settings.xml

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the solution. It arrived after the IT helpdesk found my profile to have become corrupted; so it was deleted and created again. I'll keep your answer in mind in case it happens again.

I appreciate your help.

Best,

Hi Silvio,

 

As mentioned earlier by @ChrisHemedinger and as per the SAS-Note, you can simple:

  - Open your Windows Explorer

  - Copy the following path into the address bar:

           %appdata%\SAS\EnterpriseGuide

  - Rename the folder version (if you have SAS Enterprise Guide 7.1, you'll have a 7.1 folder, etc.)

  - Start EG

 

Hope that helps

 

Cheers,
Damo
