|Subject: ||Unix and WSAVE and Display Manager Solution|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1|
I recently had trouble getting my display manager session to open
using my preferences. The WSAVE command didn't work. With the help of
Gretel at SAS tech support, I found the problem and thought the
solution was worth sharing:

Please try this. Close your SAS session. Then at the
Unix prompt, type:
ps -u userid
where 'userid' is your real userid. You will get
a list of processes that are running. In the last
column of the output, check to see if any of the
processes are SAS processes. If so, please kill them
kill -9 pid
where 'pid' is the real pid that you see associated
with the SAS process. Then open a new SAS session and
resize your window, use WSAVE to save it, and let me
know if that solves the problem.
If it turns out that you don't have any SAS sessions
running when you run the ps command, then it may very
well be that your profile catalog has become corrupted.
In that case, the thing to do is to move it out of the
way and let SAS create a new one for you. Here is the
mv profile.sas7bcat profile.old
Then start SAS (which will automatically create a new
profile catalog) and resize and save your window.
Please let me know how it goes.
