The last time someone contacted me with that question, they were trying to install a desktop version on a server OS. Or maybe it was the opposite (it has been a while). I believe SAS was pretty cavalier about the OS through Version 6.x, but afterwards, it checked the Registry.

Is it possible that the version of SAS that you have is for Windows XP rather than Windows 7? That would explain the message.

Subject: SAS 9.3 installation
I am trying to install SAS 9.3 for Window Single User 64 bits. And after I evoke the setup.exe, it gives me the error message below.
"you have attempted to install software intended for one operating system on a machine using a different operating system. You should either install on a machine using the operating system you downloaded for or return to the download site and download the appropriate software for your operating system. "
I got this new Dell desktop with OS Window 7 Enterprise, 64 bits, and I am wondering how I should fix this problem?
Many thanks for your help.
