Cannot run ANY program in new version of SAS University Edition.

I did heed the warning about license expiration for SAS University Edition. I downloaded and installed the latest version: unvbasicvapp__9411010__ova__en__sp0__1.ova

Now, NONE of my programs work. They do not even start! Every program, which worked yesterday in the old version gets the notes:

"NOTE: The quoted string currently being processed has become more than 262 bytes long.  You might have unbalanced quotation marks." (after line 4 of the SAS Studio initialization. I.e. BEFORE IT GETS TO MY CODE) and

multiple instances of the following: NOTE 49-169: The meaning of an identifier after a quoted string might change in a future SAS release.  Inserting white space between a quoted string and the succeeding identifier is recommended.

I have made no changes other than installing the new version of SAS UNiversity Edition.

I am dead in the water. What do I do to get restarted????

Thanks. I was working on an included source code file. I put an asterisk before the %include statement but the include happened anyway.
My [stupid] error. Sorry to have bothered anyone.

Re: Cannot run ANY program in new version of SAS University Edition.

You have unbalanced quotes somewhere. Unless it's a very serious bug in UE (which I don't assume, as it would pop up at the first test at SAS Institute), you have it in your code.

Re: Cannot run ANY program in new version of SAS University Edition.

If you believe it's not your code, please post the log from running a very basic proc means or proc freq. 

 

proc means data=sashelp.class;
run;

proc freq data=sashelp.cars;
table make;
run;
