While you have installed the PC File Server you are not using the correct LIBNAME to use it as described in this link:

43802 - Installing SAS® 9.3 PC Files Server and using it to convert 32-bit Microsoft Office files to...

For example: libname test pcfiles path='drive:\yourdirectory\yourfile.xls' server='yourserver' port=9621;
