Software Order E-mail

The Software Order E-mail (SOE) is sent to you after you request a maintenance release, a product upgrade, or a new SAS product. Here is an example of the information that you might see in the SOE if you requested the third maintenance release for SAS 9.2:
Example of Software Order E-mail
The introductory text states that you are receiving this e-mail because you requested a maintenance release. By using the information in the Product field, you can confirm that you are downloading the third maintenance release for SAS 9.2. The third maintenance release is represented by TS2M3.
You can use the revision numbers in the Product field to determine when your order was placed. In this example, the revision number is Rev. 920_10w34, which means that the order was placed in the 34th week of 2010. If your order includes the third maintenance release for SAS 9.2, then the revision number in the Product field is 10w20 or later.
It is recommended that you use the same SAS Software Depot as you used for your initial SAS 9.2 installation. By using the same SAS Software Depot, SAS downloads only the files that have changed since your initial installation. If you create a new SAS Software Depot, then SAS downloads all of the files for SAS 9.2 and any products in your order.
