How do I determine variable importance in an Ensemble model in Enterprise Miner

I am currently building a model and the winning model is an ensemble model consisting of a HD Neural Network and a PLS regression but i am struggling to calculate variable imjportance. Has anyone had to do this before?

See this post, the same trick should work!  I just tried connecting Ensemble>Score>Reporter node, and the tree-based Variable Importance chart is included in the report as mentioned in this post.
