Hello,

SAS Studio is not the platform. Windows (WIN) could be the platform or UNIX/Linux or MainFrame or Mac or .... You get it.

Submit this:

*proc options; *run;
%PUT &=sysscp;
%PUT &=sysvlong;
/* end of program */

and present us with the result (to be found in the LOG-window).

For me, it says (for the old SAS on my laptop):

31   *proc options; *run;
32   %PUT &=sysscp;
SYSSCP=WIN
33   %PUT &=sysvlong;
SYSVLONG=9.04.01M4P110916
34   /* end of program */

That's interesting, I think most of us would interpret the question similar to the OP and I'd assume the OS would be Window/Unix etc....

If you are using SAS/Studio then you should be able to add a LIBNAME statement to your autoexec.sas file.

Two methods in SAS Studio, one is to add your libname statement to the Autoexec, which you can access via Edit AutoExec option in the same menu that you access Preferences (three lines at the top right of SAS Studio).

The second method is to go to the Library Pane, click the button to manually create the library and provide the path. There's also a button to click that says: "recreate this library at startup" that will add the command to your Autoexec and it'll be persistent across sessions.
