running VBS from Base SAS with Windows 7/Office 365

Hi all,

 

Hopefully there is a simple solution to this. I like to use the below x command to generate the below message box. We recently upgraded to Office 365. Now, when I run the x-command, instead of the message box popping up, the VBS file opens in notepad. I'm not even sure if this is an issue with SAS or with Windows. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

 

x "&filepath\prog_complete.vbs";

Thanks

 

Mike

You just need to change the "open with" setting for vbs files on your computer. Try method 2 described at: https://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/69758-default-programs.html
