The consensus at the time was that Proc Setinit only spoke of licensing.
The function Sysprod() also does not help here.
If you are on a Windows machine, there is a downloadable SAS job for
checking on installed products. The support note at
tells of this and gives a link for downloading the job. I see that there
are different ones for V8 and V9 ( Filedetv8.sas and Filedetv9.SA ) . They
operate by searching the SAS directory and check for specific dlls. eg
if (dllprod='sasimode.dll') then prodinst='Access to PC File Formats';
if (dllprod='sasioodb.dll') then prodinst='Access to ODBC';
if (dllprod='sasiosyb.dll') then prodinst='Access to Sybase';
if (dllprod='sasioora.dll') then prodinst='Access to Oracle';
if (dllprod='sasiotra.dll') then prodinst='Access to Teradata';
if (dllprod='sasiodbu.dll') then prodinst='Access to DB2';
if (dllprod='sasioole.dll') then prodinst='Access to OLE/DB';
I don't see why someone could not write a similar job for other OS.
Hope all is well out there.
Ps: Don't let Toby look at either of these programs or he'll bust a gut
swearing at the programming style. There's a whole lot of
Data a; ...
and I don't see later refs. to the earlier sets.

Discussion" Licensed vs. Installed?
Please respond to
I seem to recall a discussion some months ago about what's licensed
vs. what's installed. Can someone please remind me how we can
determine what SAS software modules are installed on your machine vs.
what's been licensed? My recollection is that PROC SETINIT will tell
you what is licensed, not what's actually installed.
