I have been attempting to run a linear regression model using proc surveyreg and have been receiving the following error:
ERROR: Read Access Violation In Task [ SURVEYREG )
Exception occurred at (674CCD05)
Address Frame (DBGHELP API VERSION 4.0 rev5)
! I've left out the memory locations that follow, but let me know if you need them !
This error has occurred for various surveyreg models on 2 windows xp pcs (one with 4 gigs of memory). Strangely enough, if I reinstall SAS, the models will run fine for one session. Once I start a new session and rerun the models, I receive the error. Additionally, I am able to run the models without problem on my University's UNIX server.
I searched online and found that a read access violation is not rare, but typically it occurrs for specific procedures (and I haven't found anyone having this problem with proc surveyreg).
Specifically with PROC SURVEYREG, you can get a read access violation if you list the same variable more than once in the CLASS statement (according to this SAS note): http://support.sas.com/kb/10/035.html
If this is not your issue, then your best bet for help is to contact Tech Support and open a track with them.
