Re: unknown app specified to jlaunch:data

Could you be a bit more specific please.  It is a .sas7bdat file you are trying to open from the SAS Explorer?  If not what file type?  What does the "dataset" open with when you do it successfully by going to the location?

Also, @aura, in addition to what @RW9 said, since you are using a licensed version of the product, I would encourage you to contact Technical Support at support@sas.com or call in. 

 

Thanks, 

Randy

I don't think SAS 9.2 was supported on Windows 7, except for the Education version. 

If you have a valid license upgrades are included for free 9.2 is pretty old - almost 10 yrs old. Since this is a new installation I would highly recommend a new version.

9.2 was the first version that could be run on Windows 7. I know that because we had to migrate from 9.1.3 to 9.2 when we introduced Windows 7.

@KurtBremser is correct, I misread the file, SAS 9.2 was supported with the last release, 9.2 TS2M3

That version is only 7 years old Smiley Happy

And I'm finally in the process of upgrading to 9.4. At last.
