I just have bought a new PC with a pre-installed Windows 7, and that poses a problem for me since I cannot install on it the SAS 9.1.3 that I received from my university. As a result, I installed Windows XP mode on Windows 7 and was able to install SAS 9.1.3 on it. It is very, very slow though. Do you know roughly when SAS is going to support Windows 7? I asked my university and it seems that they are mostly using SAS 9.1.3, but they also have SAS 9.2 of some version that cannot be installed on Windows 7.
As far as I know, SAS doesn't sell the software to individuals like Matlab, Stata, etc... do, and also SAS license is expensive. If I want to work with SAS, how can I get a SAS version without going through a government organization, a university or a business?
