Close ALL applications including any virus scan program and/or email program. Start with Setup CD.
After choosing your language preference, you will see the window below. Since we already have a copy of SAS 9.1.3, our machine has satisfied all the system requirements. So we can choose "Install SAS Software". At this point, we also should have the sid.txt (Sas Installation Data) ready, since a couple of screens later, we will have to provide the path to it.
Since SAS has been previously installed, we will choose "Add components to SAS" shown below.
Next step needs some care. You may just want to take the default. That means you’ll have all the licensed components. (If this is all you want, you can skip to next step. Otherwise, read along.)
But this does not mean you will have all the example data sets from each module. If you also want to install these example data sets, you will have to manually go through the selection menu and check on the items. For example, in our case, we want to install all of the gismaps that SAS offers. We first click on the plus sign for SAS 9.1. This will expand the menu as shown below.
Now check the items that you want to install.
Now we are ready to install all the components we have chosen in previous step. From now on, just simply follow the instructions, basically changing CDs accordingly. Things should go as expected. Again, if you have not close all the applications, this is your last time to do so.
The order of CDs that will be asked is as follows.
- Software Disk 1
- Software Disk 2
- Software Disk 3 (only if you have requested to install gismaps)
- Software Disk 4
- SAS National Language Support
- Service Pack 2 for SAS Foundation
- AS/Shared Components
About file associations, choosing "No" and applying the answer to all the questions will speed up the installation process since SAS will not try too associate each itself with different formats of files. But this may prevent SAS launch itself automatically when you click on a SAS data set or a SAS program.
You will use the SAS Setup Disk to finish the installation.
We strongly recommend reboot your computer after the installation.
