I hope somebody can advise..
Until now, we have had a Dataflux licencing structure (v2.5 of DMS) and have been running jobs using the dmpexec.exe module
Our .BAT files would contain code to initiate the job and look something like this eg (taken from the SAS Help documentation - an actual example has been attached)
We have recently moved to a SAS licence structure and installed v2.6 of the product.
My installation hierarchy structure now looks like
"C:\Program Files (x86)\SASHome\x86\SASStudioSingleUser\3.3......"
Below this are directories names \build, \installs, \lib and \war
Can anybody please advise where I can find the exec module to enable me to run my jobs in a batch mode and what my batch file should look like now
(and SAS - could you please update your documentation to reflect this too)

Here's the DM Studio 2.6 user guide topic about running jobs from a command line:
Does the subheading "Using the dmpexec Command for DataFlux Data Management Studio" help?

Thanks but unfortunately this doesn't help as this refers to the dmpexec module which used to be there under the Dataflux installation but is no longer there under the new SAS structure - see original post

Nigel, in my 2.6 image, I see a dmpexec command file and script file in the bin folder. Do you not see these in your 2.6 image?

Sadly I'm now different to this ...
This looks like out old Dataflux installation (as per our 2.5 installation). We now have a SAS installation/licence and don't have the dmpexec module any more
The Dataflux Bin directory now looks like this (with only .dll files below the snap) :
The SASHome directory looks like this
A totally different set-up and nothing like yours:smileyconfused:

:smileygrin:Found it (or think I have)... it is in the Program Files directory, not the Program Files (x86) directory (as usual)
Looks like SAS now have SASHome in both directories!
Off home here now - end of the working day in Europe but I'll give it a go in the morning
Thank you for your assistance

Nigel, the screen shots above show SAS Studio 3.3 in the path, which is different than DataFlux Data Management Studio 2.6. DataFlux DM Studio is a 32-bit application, so I would expect it to be in the Program Files (x86) folder. Based on what 2.6 doc says, I would expect the path to dmpexec to be something like:
C:\Program Files (x86)\...[dmstudio_install_home]\[install_instance_name]\bin\dmpexec.*"
Is that not what you are seeing?

Thanks for the answer - it may be that, when we installed, we had an option of installing in either 32 or 64B mode. We chose the latter (since we run Windows 7 in 64B) - knowing that this previously was only a 32B application
I was wondering on the way into work this morning whether SAS has split the installation to accommodate this action.
nb Sorry - in my haste to leave last night I attached the wrong screenshot:smileyblush: hopefully this one is more useful
