Having the syntax editor show up missing is not always a result of
carelessness on the part of the installer. It's a known problem that
has happened to lots of people, and has been discussed on SAS-L in the
past. The operating system is necessarily Windows, because that's the
only platform where the enhanced editor is available.
The easiest way to fix the problem is to install the syntax editor
separately. It's in a subdirectory on one of the installation disks. I
think it's called eeditor, and there's a setup.exe to install it.

Are you sure, that you FINISHED it? Without any errors? What is your
operating system? What version of SAS?
You know, that it is not a 10 minute job to do it since V8? You have to
a lot of rebooting during the installation and it is now deep in your
registry! Also I think some services are installed now, a new version
internet explorer and and and. My suggestion: take an hour of time, do
installation again and have a look on ALL windows and messages you see
during that process. Note them and provide it here, if it doesn't
