You would have gotten a better answer sooner if you had mentioned the
log message in your first question.
The keys are not being assigned in the second session because only one
instance of SAS can have the sasuser profile open read/write at one
time. So the first instance grabs it, reads the key assignments and
other stuff from it, and leaves it open in case it needs to save
When you open a second session, it tries to open the sasuser profile,
but it can't, because the first session already has it locked. So you
get a message about the profile, and the default SAS settings - which
do not include your customizations - are used.
One way around this is to set up two icons for SAS, one with -RSASUSER
and one with -NORSASUSER. Unless you want to change and save your
session settings, use the icon with -RSASUSER (read-only SASUSER).
You can have as many of those sessions open at once as your resources
will allow. When you want to save a setting, close all the -RSASUSER
sessions, open a -NORSASUSER session, make your changes, save them,
and close the session.
