Usage Note 45010: SAS® Enterprise Miner(tm) 6 java client versions do not start when expected
When you select the following path, SAS Enterprise Miner should start: Start ► Programs ► SAS ► Analytics ► Enterprise Miner Client 6.x. However, SAS Enterprise Miner does not start.
The problem occurs when the Java Runtime Environment that was installed when SAS Enterprise Miner was installed becomes corrupted. Corruption can occur if a later version of the Java Runtime Environment is installed after SAS Enterprise Miner is installed.
You can check which Java Runtime Environment SAS is using to confirm that it is still valid by following these steps:
From a file explorer window, go to C:\Program Files\SAS and view the file, sassw.config. That
file contains a JREHOME variable.
For example: JREHOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_24\bin\java.exe
Start a DOS command window, Start ► Run ► cmd ► enter and
navigate via cd commands to that location.
For example: cd "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_24\bin\java.exe"
Type java -version and confirm that you get the correct response.
If there are no errors when running the java -version command, then turn on SAS Enterprise Miner Client logging. Follow these steps:
Go to a file explorer window and navigate to
Make a backup of the em.ini file
Edit the em.ini file to change the applogloc= to contain a value to which you
have Write permissions.
