To install SAS, ensure you have first connected to the CatFiles apps drive. Instructions on how to do so are found in your SAS email from the SAS admin, but you can also refer to the following knowledge base articles:

The CatFiles apps drives address is \\catfiles.users.campus\apps$

Note: When connecting to CatFiles, you must enter your eID as "users\eID". For example, if your eID was "williewildcat", you would sign on using "users\williewildcat"

If connecting to CatFiles from an off-campus location, you will also need to connect using the VPN. 

Once connected to the CatFiles apps drive, open the "StatisticsSoftware" folder and the "SAS" folder within it

Locate the version of SAS you wish to install, and copy the folder to a local file on your computer, such as your desktop or document folder. SAS will not install correctly directly from the network drive. 

When the folder is copied to your computer, open the setup file located within the folder. It is an application called either "setup" or "setup.exe"

Opening the setup file will launch the SAS deployment wizard. For further installation instructions, refer to this knowledge base article.
