Has anyone had issues installing SAS Add-In 6.1 for Excel
Hello fellas, Im currently working on SAS installation. First the instructions that were sent from SAS for installation were confusing and incorrect. Once I got that figured out I moved to KACE to deploy it. I created a distribution package and realized I can not deploy it like that because it needs a response file to install with custom settings. So I created a script to run a batch file. Added the dependencies sas.exe and sdwresponse.properties and moved to task to run a batch file with the following commands xcopy sas.exe c:\ xcopy sdwresponse.properties c:\
sas.exe /verysilent -- -responsefile "c:\sdwresponse.properties"
Then is when more trouble started. I run the script and checked on the taskmanager, and saw were the installation was taking place. So I said cool is installing, then open Excel to see if the add is was there and nothing. I started to check on the script script seem fine. I created a script on the test computer with same commands and it run fine. SOmething was going on that was making the installation no to install properly. I copy the script from the local computer from c:\programdata\dell\kace\kbots_cache\packages\kbots\788 and added a pause to check was going on. I noticed were the dashes are it was putting weird characters, recreated the script from sctratch and it worked fine. Seems that KACE script does not recognize special caracters. what I end up doind is telling the script copy install files along with a batch file I created locally and then run the batch file once is copied to C:\ Has anyone experinece same situation?
