System Requirements for SAS 9.4 Foundation for Microsoft Windows for x64
Web Browser
SAS 9.4 Foundation uses Remote Browsing to display web-based information. Instead of running a
browser on the workstation, SAS 9.4 Foundation sends the URL to your desktop computer for display
in a web browser. This removes the browser overhead from the server. This also allows display of
output that requires browser plug-ins that do not run on a 64-bit computer. A small software agent
named the Remote Browser Server is installed on your desktop computer to enable SAS to
communicate with your browser.
SAS creates a URL that references the information to be displayed (ODS output), then sends the URL
to the SAS Remote Browser Server on your desktop computer (step 1). The Remote Browser Server
then sends a request to the browser to display a page (step 2). The browser then reconnects to SAS to
retrieve the information to be displayed and displays it in the browser (step 3).
To use remote browsing, your desktop computer must be one of the following platforms, and have
installed one of the supported browsers.
Platform
Windows 7 ( 64-bit)
Supported Browser
Firefox 6 (32-bit)
Internet Explorer 9 (32-bit) or
Internet Explorer 10 (32-bit)
Windows 8 ( 64-bit)
Firefox 6 (32-bit)
Internet Explorer 10 (32-bit)
Linux 64-bit

Firefox 6
System Requirements for SAS 9.4 Foundation for Microsoft Windows for x64
The Remote Browser Server must be installed and running for SAS to display web information. The
installer for the Remote Browser Server can be found on support.sas.com
(http://support.sas.com/documentation/configuration/thirdpartysupport/v94/t
hirdparty94.html), or directly downloaded from a SAS session.
For SAS to be able to use your web browser, the browser must be configured to allow pop-up windows.
Java Requirements
For information about Java Runtime Environment (JRE) requirements, please refer to the SAS 9.4
Support for Java Runtime Environments web page, located at
http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v94/jres.html.

If you are upgrading to SAS 9.4 Foundation, please note that some of these features were not
available in earlier releases of SAS software.
Internet Access
With Internet access, you can view and download documents from the SAS Install Center, and
review material on the SAS Support web site.
HTMLHelp Viewer
To conform to the native Windows environment, SAS Help and Documentation is provided in the
compiled HTML format supported by the Microsoft HTML Help Viewer, which presents help
information in the same layout used in Windows applications. This format is very compact and
provides extensive searching capabilities. The highest level of functionality is available when Internet
Explorer, Version 6, Service Pack 2 (or higher) is installed. Internet Explorer is provided with
Windows Server.
SAS Universal Viewer
SAS Universal Viewer is an application for the Windows operating environment that enables you to
view SAS data sets and other types of files without invoking SAS and without installing SAS on your
computer. SAS Universal Viewer is a replacement for the SAS System Viewer, and it is available with
Base SAS and as a free download from SAS. You can view, sort, and filter data sets, but you are not
able to edit them.
With SAS Universal Viewer, you can view the following types of files:


other application supporting DDE. SAS 9.4 Foundation will act as a client only.
Electronic Mail
Send Mail... is provided as a menu item in the File pull-down menu. Send Mail... allows
electronic mail messages to be initiated from SAS 9.4 Foundation. It is also possible to send mail
using a data step file access method or SCL via SAS/AF software. The following mail APIs are
supported - MAPI and VIM. This requires installation of third party products such as Microsoft
7
System Requirements for SAS 9.4 Foundation for Microsoft Windows for x64
Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express. SMTP email server access via MAPI requires an Internet
connection.
SAS Service Configuration Utility
The SAS Service Configuration Utility allows administrators to customize the operation of SAS 9.4
Foundation running as a service on a particular computer. It requires only 0.5 MB of space on the
computer using the SAS Service Configuration Utility.
For additional information, refer to the SAS Service Configuration Utility chapter in Configuration
Guide for SAS 9.4 Foundation on Microsoft Windows for x64.
SAS Deployment Wizard and Subset Orders
The SAS Deployment Wizard allows users to subset orders within a depot when it is being moved or
copied. The previous process of creating a Client Software Depot or a Personal Software Depot that
was available in the SAS Administrator Wizard in earlier releases of SAS has been replaced. If you are
used to employing either of these functionalities, please refer to the SAS Deployment Wizard and SAS
Deployment Manager 9.4: User's Guide for information about how to select the specific products you
want to copy into a separate depot. This type of newly created depot can serve the same function as
those depots did in previous releases. The User’s Guide can be found here:

dBase files(.dbf)
Excel files (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsb, .xlsm)
JMP files (.jmp)
Microsoft Access database files (.mdb or .accdb)
Paradox(.db)
SPSS files (.sav)
Stata files (.dta)
SAS 9.4 will automatically install the Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable (ACE driver)
when you install SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files software if no previous ACE driver is installed;
otherwise the existing ACE installation is left as is.
Note:
32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft ACE engine cannot co-exist on 64-bit Windows. We strongly suggest you
to install Microsoft ACE driver to match the SAS “bitness” on 64-bit Windows.
Use of an ACCESS or EXCEL libname engine requires the installation of a 64-bit Microsoft ACE
driver. If the message “ERROR: Connect: Class not registered” appears while you are using the
libname ACCESS or EXCEL libname engine, you have the incompatible 32-bit Microsoft Access
database engine (ACE) installed.
If you have to use the 32-bit ACE driver with 64-bit SAS installed, a 32-bit SAS PC Files Server must
be used to bridge the “bitness gap” with PCFILES libname engine. You can run PC Files Server as a
Windows service or as an application listening to the PCFILES libname engine. PC Files Server
provides data encryption and Authentication features with default port number 9621, which can be
configured through the PC Files Server application console. Note that the bitness” (32-bit or 64-bit) of
SAS PC Files Server must match that of the Microsoft ACE driver on the same Windows machine.
