Thanks, tubo12, we are working on it. For the path of the "Program Files", do you mean it must be at
C:\Program Files,  which what mine is at ? I guess that is the default path for most of Window machines.

Honestly, I found that on a newsgroup and am not sure what they want.  It referred to a silient installation. I'm actually assuming on options #2 - 4 that you are doing an install with user interaction. Anyways here's the link:

Here's the excerpt:
A silent installation of SAS 9.1 needs and installation of SAS 9.1 Java and MS Runtime Components 7 first.
You might want to check your Program Files path (below it is for a German version of Windows).
There is no uninstaller.

       name="Microsoft Runtime Components7 (needed by SAS9.1)"
       <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Microsoft Runtime Components 7.0" />
       <check type="file" condition="exists" path="%PROGRAMFILES%\Gemeinsame Dateien\InstallShield\Engine\6\Intel 32\iuser.dll" />

       <install cmd="%SOFTWARE%\SAS\srw\bundles\vcredst7\setup.exe -s -f2c:\Windows\Temp\msrtc.log">
