EG 7.1 task invocation results in "Error opening data" dialog

EG 7.1 on Windows-64 with SAS 9.4M3.

 

1. Open SAS dataset. It displays with rows, columns, values.Great.

 

2. Select a task. Message pops with an OK button saying "Error Opening Data".

 

3. Click OK, dialog goes away, dataset is still displayed. Just cannot

 

I tried this on a variety of SAS datasets. DMS reads them just fine.

 

I installed EG 7.1 from a depot with 9.04.01M3P062415 by installing addition software via the SDW.

 

EG Log is attached. I could not see anything untoward.

 

I am running self-contained on my laptop (no external server) with just a metadata server instance.

 

Wow. The shoe is on the other foot. This is too cool.

This might be user error. <do not use profile> let's me run the tasks. Hmmmm.....still have not seen that error before. Sorry for taking up bandwidth. I guess I am rusty Smiley Happy

Jim - welcome to the community!

 

Is the data in a metadata library that isn't pre-assigned?  Opening a task should trigger a library assignment, but it's better to have metadata libraries pre-assigned (if you can), so that the access to the data is unambiguous in the UI and any programs you run.
