Before you apply a software
update to your site, review the list of products that will be updated
on a machine. From the SAS Deployment Wizard, generate a list of the
product updates that SAS will apply to the current machine. This list
of product updates could vary for each machine at your site, so it
is important that you generate this list on every machine that runs
If no product updates are
required for a machine, then you will not see a list of product updates,
and your installation of the product upgrade or maintenance release
is complete on that machine.
To view SAS products
that will be updated on a machine:
Run the SAS Deployment
Wizard from the software depot that contains your SAS 9.3 installation.
You must use the same user ID that you used to install SAS 9.3.
In a Windows environment,
you must be an administrator to run the SAS Deployment Wizard, but
you do not have to use the same user ID that you used to install SAS
9.3. In UNIX environments, you must use the same user ID that you
used to install SAS 9.3. For both operating environments, the SDW_yyyy-mm-dd-hh.mm.ss
file lists the ID for the current user.
From the highest-level
directory in your SAS Software Depot, start the SAS Deployment Wizard
by using the command for your operating environment.

or a spreadsheet. In a spreadsheet, you can sort the data alphabetically
by product name.
If no product updates are
required, then the list of required updates does not appear, and you
can exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
Because you are not
installing any software at this time, click Cancel
exit the SAS Deployment Wizard.
After reviewing the
contents of the list of required updates and assessing the effect
on products at your site, you can install these product updates by
restarting the SAS Deployment Wizard.
When you exit the SAS Deployment
Wizard, the list of product updates is not saved. When you install
the software, a Deployment Summary for the installation (which contains
this list of product updates) is saved to the
