Maintenance Releases

After initially installing SAS® software, you will have several opportunities to update your software. Depending on your current version, one or more of the updates might apply. Here are the types of updates that you can apply to an existing SAS deployment:

  • SAS maintenance release
  • Product-specific maintenance release
  • New product upgrade

Hot Fixes

Hot fixes are an important part of maintaining your software because they address software issues present in customer applications. For some customers, a hot fix provides a quick solution to an immediate problem. For others, it simply supplies system maintenance.   

Hot fixes have been tested and are fully supported.

SAS Hot Fix Analysis, Download and Deployment Tool

The SAS Hot Fix Analysis, Download and Deployment Tool enables you to quickly install the hot fixes that you need. When you run the tool, it analyzes your system, recognizes the necessary downloads, and generates scripts that will automate the download process. After the hot fixes are downloaded, they can be easily applied to your SAS installation by using the SAS Deployment Manager.
