Installation Instructions for Hot Fix F12001

Windows for x64

Hot fix F12001 addresses the issue(s) in SAS Risk Management for Insurance Server 2.1_M1 on Windows for x64 as documented in the Issue(s) Addressed section of the hot fix download page:


  1. You must have SAS Risk Management for Insurance Server 2.1_M1 installed on your system before applying this hot fix. Refer to SN-35968 for instructions on how to determine which product releases you have installed.

  2. Files delivered in this hot fix will be backed up during the installation process. However, it is good general practice to back up your system before applying updates to software.

  3. You must have Administrator Privileges on your CLIENT or SERVER machine.

  4. All currently active SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers must be terminated before applying this hot fix.

  5. This hot fix should be installed using the same userid who performed the initial software installation.


1. The installer downloaded is F12001x6.exe.

When downloading SAS 9.2 hot fix packages, you must choose to Save the hot fix to disk, then execute the install from the saved location. Attempting to install a hot fix directly from the download page results in the error documented in SAS Note 37104.

2. Execute F12001x6.exe

This will initiate the installation wizard, which will guide you through the hot fix installation process.

Note: If your Windows operating system is Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008, it may be necessary to "right-click" F12001x6.exe and select "Run as administrator".

See the Maintenance Installation Tool (MIT) documentation for more details on the installation of hot fixes.


Follow the steps below to regenerate the Solution Data Mart (SDM):
  1. Locate the file in your install. In a typical install, the macro resides under SASHOME\rmicomnsvr\sasmisc\solution_data_mart
  2. Open the file in a Base SAS session on the installation server (where the SAS code resides)
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the macro file and comment out the following line:
  4. Compile the macro in the SAS session by clicking the Submit button on the menu
  5. After successful compilation, execute the following macro below:
    %create_solution_data_mart(soln_data_mart_dir=<complete path to indata directory in your install>);
    Example of indata path: <CONFIGDIR>\AppData\SASRiskManagementForInsurance\2.1\indata
  6. Check the SAS log for successful execution of the preceeding macro.

    In addition, complete the following for any existing playpens that use private entity data marts, or for any shared entity data marts:

  7. Login to Risk Management for Insurance 2.1
  8. Select File > Select Entity, choose an entity from the list, and click OK.
  9. Re-create any private playpens or the shared data mart for that entity.
    If you are re-creating a playpen that uses a private entity data mart, select File > Manage Playpens from the menu, and for each playpen you are re-creating, follow instructions for creating a playpen that uses a private entity data mart. Any private playpens created prior to the re-creation of the solution data mart cannot receive updates that have been applied to the solution data mart.

    If you are re-creating a shared entity data mart, select File > Manage Shared Data Mart from the menu, and click Change to update the existing shared data mart. (Playpens that use the shared data mart do not require re-creation.)
  10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 for each Entity

This completes the installation of hot fix F12001 on Windows for x64.
