Subject: Re: SAS 9.2 successful, now the licensing part
Given the history of this thread, I thought that the license might be to the
workstation, as noted by Nat, Suzanne, and Michael (many thanks for your
An off-list respondent at a university site with the Education Analytic
Suite said that under their arrangement, two versions of SAS on the same
workstation would be two separate licenses. Darn!
So, as statisticians like to say, it depends! I suspect I'm in the "darn"
category, but I'll see whether I can talk my local SAS software person into
confirming with the folks at SAS Institute.
Or maybe I'll just buy the second license (it's only $60 so I should just be
grateful and get back to work)....

>Susan, when dealing with Windows workstation SAS, it is normally one
license per _WORKSTATION_, not per version of SAS on that workstation. The
initial SAS log on both your 9.1.3 and your 9.2 likely shows the same
organization and site number, e.g. "Licensed to Susan D INC, Site 1234567.",
meaning that they are two versions of the same license. If that is the
case, you only need one license.

advice on this and other licensing issues, since she is a paid professional
and I am just a rank amateur:-)
>Susan, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
