Dave & Art -

In your SASV9.CFG the profile folder can be modified if you have rights to its directory. In mine it's referred from C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\SASV9.CFG to the actual file in C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\nls\en\SASV9.CFG.

Here's the profile location setting in SASV9.CFG:

/* Setup the default SAS System user profile folder */ -SASUSER "?CSIDL_PERSONAL\My SAS Files\9.1"

When I installed my group's XP/SASv9 as administrator I was able to define the profile folder to be under their XP documents directory which gave them each rights to modify it.

Was the experience Ron related the same as your own (i.e., is the problem solved?).

I've also run into the problem, but for a totally different reason. Our IT folks were installing SAS in an XP environment, but logging on as Administrators when doing the installs.

As a result, the user profile only held if one logged on as Administrator, and the software had to be re-installed under each user's login.
