I give many presentations and workshops on how to use SAS/IML Studio, and more than once I have been asked about how to launch the program. Sometimes the inquiry hints at mild frustration, such as last week's "How do I RUN the $%#@# THING!!!!" The email I got this week was more polite:
I attended your recent training on SAS/IML Studio. I'm deeply impressed by its capability and would like to try it. You said IML Studio is available in SAS 9.2, with a SAS/IML license. I do have SAS 9.2 installed on my PC, and IML works okay, too. However, I don't see how to launch [SAS/IML Studio] from the Solutions --> Analysis menu. Does that mean IML/Studio is not installed on my PC?
The customer launched SAS and thought that he could launch SAS/IML Studio from within the SAS "display manager" environment. As the next image shows (click to enlarge), SAS/IML Studio is not on the list.
Other customers look for SAS/IML Studio from within Enterprise Guide, but it's not inside EG, either.
To launch SAS/IML Studio, click the Start-->Programs-->SAS menu. That menu contains SAS/IML Studio along with other client-server applications such as Enterprise Guide and the ODS Graphics Editor.
If you do not see SAS/IML Studio listed on the SAS menu, then it's possible that your SAS administrator didn't install SAS/IML Studio when he installed the rest of SAS. No worries. You can always download the latest version of SAS/IML Studio.
