M-x SAS doesn't work on Windows.  This is a SAS issue.  They do not
provide the -stdio flag on the sas command on Windows systems.  That
flag is available on Unix systems.

The best plan on Windows is to use emacs and ESS for editing your *.sas
files.  When you are ready to run a "PROC .... RUN;" region, highlight it
and drop it into the SAS EDITOR window in the the SAS DISPLAY MANAGER.

See the info files for ESS.
C-h i C-s ESS <RET> <RET> C-s SAS C-s <RET> <RET>
