If you are modifying an existing SAS deployment, perform a backup before you install your
new SAS software order.
• Back up the existing SASHOME (for example, C:\Program Files\SAS) and configuration directories. Follow your site’s established backup procedures. • Back up your metadata. Please see the “Backing Up and Restoring Your System” section of the System Administration Guide. The guide is located on the Product Documentation Web site for SAS Intelligence Platform: http://support.sas.com/92administration Complete the pre-installation checklist(s) appropriate for your software order(s).

If your Windows operating system is Windows Vista or later, you may have to right‐
