Many many moons ago, when I installed SAS 82.3 on an IBM mainframe, back when it required the PL/I transient library to run, SAS Institute supplied a batch IVP (Installation Verification Procedure), which minimally exercised a number of SAS procedures. I would print the output to microfiche and file it. Just by holding it up to a light, I could compare it with the previous install and see whether the number of pages or their content varied widely from the last install. And if anything caught my eye, I could examine the detail in a microfiche viewer.

I'm not familiar with the process for installing SAS on a PC workstation. -Leslie --
