  • Find the instruction file according to your systems(x32 or x64)
  • Find the correct license basing on your systems(x32 or x64) and PC(Sever or Workstation), copy to your local PC
  • 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)
