Anyone installing SAS?

What is happening? The SAS installer may require a reboot in the middle of the installation and will ask for your userid and password to promote an automatic login. Do not provide your userid and password. SAS is removing the option for automatic logins from their installer script due to issues with the code.

What should you do instead? Cancel the installation, reboot the machine, and start again.
