Initialization and Termination Error Messages

If SAS issues error messages during SAS initialization or termination, the SAS log can contain error messages that explain the error. Any error message that SAS issues before the SAS log is initialized or after is closed are written to the MSG window if it is available. Also, messages can be written to the SAS console log, which is a Windows file. Under Windows, the SAS console log is typically located in c:\Users\user ID\AppData. You can obtain the location and filename for the SAS Console Log from the Application Event Log. To open the application Event Log, submit eventvwr from the Run dialog box and click Application.
