Well, I'm in the unfortunate position of having left SAS Mecca to return a
bit closer to my native home. So without the assortment of Westat wizards
to call on (or better yet, solve problems for me before I'm even aware of
them), I suspect I'll be revealing much more of my igorance to the list in
I have moved from a network install with other people taking care to make
sure that my SAS was running nicely, to a local install (Win2000Pro /SAS
8.2) where it falls on my shoulders.
So what's the deal with the HotFixes? I should just go download all of the
hotfixes/bundles I can find and install them (though perhaps not the one
described by stephen.dunn@HIGHWAY-INSURANCE.CO.UK)? And then I should make
sure everyone else in our group has installed the same fixes? And as new
HotFixes are released continue to install them?
I guess in general, I'd be grateful for any thoughts/SUGI papers on *basic*
issues of managing a local SAS installation. Even simple stuff such as
which official SAS email lists etc should I subscribe to in order to get
notifications of new problems/fixes....
Thanks for your help,
