How to determine which hot fix has been applied to SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1

By | February 12, 2009

saslogo When using a Microsoft product, I’m used to mousing to the Help menu and choosing About… to find out which updates or service packs have been applied.  I haven’t been as accustomed to doing the same thing with SAS software because the updates are  applied manually, and I usually remember the last update I performed.  I haven’t been as good at keeping track of these these lately, so I decided to to use the Help –> About SAS Enterprise Guide technique to see what it told me.  Sure enough, it stated “SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1.0.508:  hot fix 41EG04 has been applied”.  Alright, I have that information, but is this the latest hot fix?  The easiest way to check is to browse over to http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/ent_guide41.html to check out the Enterprise Guide 4.1 Hot Fix history.  It appears that I was a few hot fixes behind and it is time to apply the current hot fix.  One nice feature about Enterprise Guide hot fixes: each hot fix is cumulative, so you only need to apply the latest hot fix, not worrying about the ones you missed.
