System Requirements


A Metacoda Software License File is required to fully enable Metacoda Plug-ins. This license file is sent via email to Metacoda customers when they purchase a commercial license (or apply for an evaluation license) and after each annual renewal of the license.

The Metacoda Utility Plug-ins are available at no cost to registered users. In the absence of a license file these plug-ins are fully enabled.


Metacoda Plug-ins are designed to run within the SAS Management Console and must be installed on a workstation that already has SAS Management Console software installed.

There are two major versions of Metacoda Plug-ins available for the two major SAS software versions used by our customers. The following table outlines which version of Metacoda Plug-ins can be used with which SAS software version.

SAS 9.4 SAS 9.3 SAS 9.2
Metacoda Plug-ins 6.0
Metacoda Plug-ins 5.0

The latest version of Metacoda Plug-ins is 6.0 and is available for use with SAS 9.4, SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.2. The previous Metacoda Plug-ins 5.0 has been replaced by version 6.0.

The following table summarizes the components provided by each version of the Metacoda Plug-ins together with their compatible SAS software version.
