Errors During Installation
If at any time, the installer reports that a component failed to install, DO NOT ABORT THE INSTALLER. Tell the installer to continue with errors, until the installation wizard completes the installation attempt. Upon completion, please try re-running the installer from the beginning. In the vast majority of reported cases, a second install attempt completes successfully.
SAS installs numerous components on your machine, and some of these components are needed to remove other components. The procedure to uninstall SAS varies with the version you’re using.
Uninstall SAS 9.3 & 9.4
The SAS 9.3 and 9.4 Deployment Wizard includes an uninstall function. When you launch the Deployment Wizard, one of the options will be “Uninistall SAS and all components.”
Please use this utility to remove SAS 9.3 or 9.4. Attempting to remove SAS components manually via “Add/Remove Programs” can leave Windows in an unstable state.
After the SAS uninstall utility successfully completes, you may safely use Add/Remove Programs to remove any remaining SAS components.
