NOTE!  TROUBLE OPENING DOWNLOADED FILES?  Some people who have purchased SAS have had difficulties expanding the zip files.  It appears that the native Windows file compression software cannot handle large files.  We recommend using a 3rd party compression program such as 7-Zip, which has proven to work well.
