New to SAS and Enterprise guide

I tried to start with tutorial and did the following

File--> Open--> Data-->Local computer -->Orders

I am getting following error. Can anyone tell me how to fix this so that I can proceed with my basic tutorial.

Enterpise Guide cannot open the data file: C:\Program Files\SAS\Enterprise Guide 4\Sample\Data\Orders.sd2
Error opening data "Orders".
Failed to open the data set in READ mode.
Do you want to remove all references to thsi file from the project?

This sounds like an installation issue.

If you have SAS on the same machine as EG, then EG should have launched a SAS workspace session to open the data. If you don't have SAS on your local machine, then EG should use the SAS local data provider to open/read the SD2 file.

Either way, this error indicates that something is not installed quite right. You should probably work with tech support to resolve the issue.
