SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation Deployment

For environments where a server-based installation is not required, the SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation installation supports a single-user, single-machine installation. The single-user Workstation installation is not a planned installation and is a simpler process than the Server installation. It can be installed on any Microsoft Windows operating system (32 or 64 bit) that is supported by SAS.
Note: The SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation, SAS Enterprise Miner Desktop, and SAS Enterprise Miner Classroom releases are virtually identical installations.
  1. For the SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation installation, no Web application server is required after your system is prepared and the pre-installation tasks are complete. You need to log on to the target machine with Administrator privileges. Start the SAS Deployment Wizard from the highest-level directory in your SAS Software Depot using the setup application that is appropriate for your operating system. For example, on a Windows system, that file is setup.exe and is located in the SAS Software Depot folder.
  2. Select your preferred language for the SAS Deployment Wizard.
  3. Enter the following information:
    1. Select Deployment Task — Select Install SAS Software. Click Next.
    2. Specify SAS Home — Choose a file system location for the home folder for your SAS software. On Windows systems, this will default to C:\Program Files\SASHome. You can use the Browse button to navigate to an alternate location for your SAS Home. Click Next.
    3. Select Deployment Type — Select Install SAS Foundation and Related Software. Click Next.
    4. Select Products to Install — All of the products in your order are listed on this page. The default values that are selected are those that are typically installed with SAS Enterprise Miner Workstation. Click Next.
    5. Select SAS Foundation Products — The defaults that are selected are all of the SAS Foundation products in your order. Generally, you will want all of the products in your order. Click Next.
    6. Specify SAS Installation Data File — This is the path to your SID file. By default, the SID file is located in the sid_files folder of your SAS Software Depot. If necessary, click Browse to navigate to this file. Click Browse.
    7. Select Language Support — Select the languages that you want to install for the products that are listed. Only those languages that work with your locale are installed. Click Next.
    8. Select Regional Settings — Specify how you want your SAS Software to format and display language, region, and locale-specific information. Also, you can choose to configure SAS as a Unicode server and force SAS to use UTF-8 encoding in all data sets, catalogs, and text output. This can be useful if you need to share these files with computers that use different language representations. Click Next.
    9. Select Java Runtime Environment — If you have special requirements for a version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), you can choose Select an existing JRE and use the Browse button to navigate to your preferred JRE. It is recommended that you use the default JRE. Click Next.
    10. Specify SAS Text Analytics Document Conversion Host and Port — If you are installing SAS Enterprise Miner with SAS Text Miner on a Windows machine, then SAS Document Conversion will be installed automatically on the same machine. The host name will default to the machine name, and the default port value is 7111. If you are installing SAS Enterprise Miner Server with SAS Text Analytics on a UNIX machine, enter the host name and port number from the Document Conversion installation from the SAS Text Miner and the SAS Document Conversion Service section earlier in this chapter. Click Next.
    11. Checking System — The SAS Deployment Wizard checks to ensure that the system has enough disk space and the files and folders that it will write are accessible. The installation cannot proceed until access is granted for any listed files. When the examination is complete, click Next.
    12. Deployment Summary — Review the software that is selected before starting the installation. If everything is correct, Click Next.
    13. Deployment Complete — Check all stages for errors or warnings. Click Next.
