Update SAS License

Every year SAS issues us a new license file. The users need to update their file to continue using SAS. We will upload the new files on a folder accessible only by current students at Stevens Institute of Technology

  • For 2013-2014: Access the shared folder "\\FSCWINSRV02\sas\SAS_Update_License_2013_2014" with your campus domain credentials and copy "SAS93_99RVNH_70129145_Win_X64_Wrkstn.txt".
  • In your own computer, go to Start -> All Programs -> SAS -> Unitilities -> Renew SAS Software.
  • Browse the txt file you just copied, click Next.
  • For the folder where SAS was installed, browes it to be "<SASHome>/SASFoundation/9.3" (path might be different on different computer)
  • Then click renew.
  • Note: if it does not work, go to the shared folder to download other txt files and try each of them. If none of them works, please contact us.
