The LIFETEST procedure ALONE works just fine, but if you execute the ODS statements, it hangs the program. Although it appears it is still running, but I have no luck to get it back to the normal working environment. All I can do is to close it manually.
My PC/ SAS environment are:
SAS 9.2 (TS2M2)
Windows XP SP3
This has been a consistent problem in my machine. I tried to resolve it by re-installing Windows and SAS (same version as above), but the issue is still there.
I have installed SAS (TS2M2) on different machines; the same Windows XP on my laptop, and Windows 7 on home PC, they both work smoothly. So I don't think it is the SAS/ Window problem.
When I force the software to terminate, occasionally, it pops up an error message saying that there was something wrong with my memory:
The instruction at "0x1066...." reference memory at "0x04a....". The memory could not be "read"
Click on [OK] to terminate the program.
However the memory testing software does not signals any issues with my memory modules.
I would really appreciate if anyone could give me some suggestions. Thanks!
