I cannot save a new favorite folder anymore, see example folder "test" and I cannot find a solution.

My preferences are "Save settings on exit" but my window settings are not permanently saved also.

 

favfolder.JPGDoes anyone know how to fix this? I cannot find a solution online.

Maybe it could help to fix it via a new profile, but I have no idea how to do it and which file I have to delete/rename:

It's possible that your profile might have become corrupted - I've seen that happen before. if you delete or rename rhe file profile.sas7bdat when you next open SAS a new one will automatically be created for you. Of course you will lose all settings in the old file.

Hi Shmuel, TEST is the name of a project specific windows folder, where my sas programms are:

create.JPG

 

And sorry, if I did not specified enough: I want to save my settings, e.g. because I want my projects available in my favorite folders. This is at the moment not possible and I do not know why. As you can see in the second picture I was able to create folders and the system saved my folders, but now - I have no idea what I might have done - it is not possible that my folder is permanently saved, means: reopen SAS - no new folder shortcut.

first try of automatically creating a new profile did not work, because I got:
NOTE: Unable to open SASUSER.PROFILE. WORK.PROFILE will be opened instead.
NOTE: All profile changes will be lost at the end of the session.
Then I used another shortcut to open SAS with another sasv9.cfg (identically file but other path) and then - surprise - my SAS created a new profile file and opend INCLUDING my user settings and options and shortcuts and keys and .... o_O It worked, that counts. :-)))
