To register file types for SAS 8 and SAS 9.1, follow the steps below, one by one, until a test shows that SAS files have been registered. (You do not have to perform all of the steps.)
Important: Make sure that you have administrative rights on the machine before following these steps.
To register file types for SAS 9.2, see SAS Note 32464, "Registering file types via the Filetype Registration Utility for Phase 1 of SAS® 9.2 and SAS® Enterprise Guide®." If you have both SAS 9.1 and SAS 9.2 installed and are having file type registration issues, see SAS note 32558, "Installing SAS® 9.2 after SAS 9.1 removes SAS 9.1 filetype registrations such as Open with SAS 9.1."
This restores the action appropriately at the user ID level.
SAS 8 "C:\PROGRA~1\SASINS~1\SAS\V8\CORE\SASEXE\SASOACT.EXE" action=Open datatype=Data filename="%1" progid=SAS.Application.8 SAS 9 "C:\PROGRA~1\SAS\SAS9~1.1\CORE\SASEXE\SASOACT.EXE" action=Open datatype=Data filename="%1" progid=SAS.Application.901
For SAS programs filetypes (.sas). cut and paste this command:
SAS 8 "C:\PROGRA~1\SASINS~1\SAS\V8\CORE\SASEXE\SASOACT.EXE" action=Open datatype=SASFile filename="%1" progid=SAS.Application.8 SAS 9 "C:\PROGRA~1\SAS\SAS9~1.1\CORE\SASEXE\SASOACT.EXE" action=Open datatype=SASFile filename="%1" progid=SAS.Application.901
This step involves copying SAS file extension and registry entries from a machine that has SAS installed and working properly on it. The copied keys are put into a .reg file and imported into the Windows registry on a machine that SAS is installed on and the definitions for the SAS files types are not correct. This procedure will not work if SAS is not installed in the same location on each machine. Also, please review warning message below.
