1. Have you checked to make sure your Program Files path is correct?
(check type="file" condition="exists" path="%PROGRAMFILES%....)

2. http://support.sas.com/techsup/unotes/SN/010/010665.html
EXCERPTS: Runtime Components might not get updated if the existing
   run-time dll attributes are set to read-only.

3. http://support.sas.com/documentation/configuration/thirdpartysupport/
 Third Party Software Downloads for SAS that may help.

4. http://ftp.sas.com/techsup/download/hotfix/sp4_jre_requirements.html
HOTFIX - For SAS Foundation, SAS 9.1.3 Service Pack 4 requires an updated Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in order to run.

Let me know if any of this helps.

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:
http://wpkg.org/index.php/MS_Runtime_Components_7

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.

   <package
       id="mscomponents7"
       name="Microsoft Runtime Components7 (needed by SAS9.1)"
       revision="1"
       reboot="false"
       priority="5">
       <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">

   </package>
