    If The Link King was not installed in c:\Link King or the shortcut does not work:

    a) modify the properties of the shortcut and/or lk_config_64.cfg (for 64 bit)

    or

    libname undup 'C:\link king';

    dm 'Af c=undup.undup_frames_64bit.intro.frame';

    After launch, close the explorer/results windows on the left side of the screen and
    maximize The Link King interface.

4. For 32-bit/Unix installations

    a) After completing #2 (above), unpack the SAS transport file undup_frames.cpt:

    libname output 'y:\buzz\delete';  /* change the path to the location where you want
    to save  undup_frames for the link king  */

    filename input 'y:\buzz\delete\undup_frames.cpt';  /* change the path to where you
    downloaded undup_frames.cpt */

    proc cimport infile=input lib=output;
    run;

    b)     See if the "Summon Link King 32" shortcut works.

    If not, modify the properties of the "Summon Link King 32" shortcut and/or
    lk_config_32.cfg

                 or

          Launch SAS and run the following code in a program editor to launch The Link King:
