SAS

My SAS software says that my license has expired

SAS licenses are leased on a fiscal year basis. You should receive a SAS Installation Data (SID) license file (called a "Setinit" in versions earlier than v9) when you purchase SAS. This license allows you to use the software from September 1 through August 31.

Typically, SDS will not receive updated SID files until late October or early November. Although the previous year's files will have expired, they have a built-in grace period of 90 days that will allow you to continue using the software.
