These are the SAS versions available for 64bit Windows.

Windows 64 vs Windows install shield

When you start the SAS installation, modern windows will most likely give you a popup asking you if you are sure you want to install this programme.

It has been observed on Windows 64-bit that this popup can be very very slow to appear. In the mean time the SAS installation looks like it is frozen.

Basically you will have to wait for the Install Shield to appear.

Common comments

  • SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.4 for Windows are all divided into two files. You need both files!

  • Note that the 32bit versions of SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.3 for Windows does not run on Windows 64bit. Install the 64bit version instead.

  • If indicated, an active licence is included in the downloaded installation media file. If the licence is not provided in the media file, the licence file must be downloaded prior to installation.

  • The installation of SAS 9.2 on Windows may cause the following error message: This application does not support your platform. The solution may be to install SAS 9.1.3 instead.

  • If SAS 9.4 does not install on Windows

    1. try to install SAS 9.3; and if SAS 9.3 does not install,

    2. try to install SAS 9.2.

    3. Finally — If SAS 9.2 does not install, reinstall Windows and try again.
