Installing SAS JMP or JMP Pro 12, SAS Simulation Studio 13.1

On this page:

These versions of JMP incorporate a license key good until 07/14/2017 (with a subsequent 90 day grace period).

Windows JMP/JMP Pro

Unzip or in a temporary location. Move to the JMP/JMP/12_2/Windows folder (JMP) or the JMP/JMP_Pro/12_2/Windows folder (JMP Pro) in the unzipped installer archive and run setup.exe to run the installer. Install to the default location, and pick the desired installation options on the following screen (the defaults are usually appropriate), then proceed with the installation. There may be an optional dialog to register the software.

Windows SAS Simulation Studio

You must install JMP or JMP Pro first in order to run SAS Simulation Studio. Unzip in a temporary location. The installer combines 32 and 64 bit versions and will automatically select the correct one for your platform.

You will need to install the license file manually in a specified directory due to a bug in the installer. As Administrator, Create the following folder path if it doesn't exist already: C:\Program Files\SASHome\licenses. From the root of the unzipped archive, copy file sid_files\SIMSTUDIO...Win_Wrkstn.txt to the licenses folder.

Move to the root of the unzipped archive and run setup.exe. Select a language and click OK. Select Install SAS software, click Next.

On the Select Products to Install screen, leave Products to install on top line as SAS Foundation and related software and check product SAS Simulation Studio (the only choice), click Next. Keep the default setting on the Specify SAS Installation Data File screen, click Next. Pick appropriate language in Select Regional Settings, click Next and Next on the following screen, then click Start on the Deployment Summary screen. Click Next when done, then Finish.

On first time launch, run SAS Simulation Studio as Administrator. Dismiss the SAS Simulation Studio configuration data not specified dialog if this pops up. On the next dialog, select the binocular icon and enter C:\Program Files\SASHome for the SASHOME path if this is not already preset. Select JMP Data Table as default data format (unless you want this to be SAS Data Set for some reason). If you're not intending to work with a remote SAS Workspace server, you can leave the next section blank. After you click OK the SAS Simulation Studio GUI will open. On subsequent launches you can run SAS Simulation Studio as an ordinary user.

A copy of the user guide (simsug.pdf) is in the simstudio top-level folder of the unzipped archive.

Note: If you want to uninstall SAS Simulation Studio later, use Uninstall SAS Software in the SAS Deployment Manager.

Macintosh JMP/JMP Pro

If you are installing JMP or JMP Pro on a machine where one of these has already been installed, delete the following files if they exist already:

/Users/<your username>/Library/preferences/* (filenames starting with
/Users/<your username>/Library/Application Support/JMP/Session.jsl

Unzip or in a temporary location. Move to the JMP/JMP/12_2/Macintosh folder (JMP) or the JMP/JMP_Pro/12_2/Macintosh folder (JMP Pro) in the unzipped installer archive and launch JMP-12.dmg, then launch JMP 12.pkg (JMP) or JMP Pro 12.pkg (JMP Pro) in the window that opens. Run the installer, keeping the default install location and installation options (you will need to enter the administrator password). There may be an optional dialog to register the software during the installation.

If you get a popup stating This copy of JMP is unlicensed, or the license is expired when you launch JMP, click Open License and navigate to the sid_files folder in the top level directory in the temporary location where you unzipped the installation archive and select the file JMP122...txt in that folder. Optionally enter personalization information on the following dialog and click OK. You should get another dialog stating the license has been accepted. Click OK to terminate the installation.

If on launch the splash screen displays:

Organization: <Unknown>
Administrator: this license is temporary

you'll need to perform a manual license update:

  1. Launch JMP or JMP Pro. From the File menu, choose New > New Script to open a script window.
  2. Enter this one line of scripting: renew license();
  3. From the Edit menu, choose Run Script.
  4. In the resulting Renew Your JMP License dialog, click Open License.
  5. At the prompt, navigate to the sid_files folder in the temporary location where you unzipped the installation archive and select the JMP122...txt file, click Choose.
  6. In the Personalize Your JMP License dialog, enter an Administrator Name and Department if you desire, click OK. You should then see a popup dialog stating Your license has been accepted. Thank you. Click OK.
