SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 projects cannot be scheduled in a Windows x64 OS

When you attempt to schedule a SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 project in a Windows x64 operating environment, the Visual Basic script fails with an error similar to the following:
Script: C:\EGP\EGScript1.vbs

Line: 7

Char: 1

Error: Object required

Code: 800A01A8

Source: Microsoft VBScript runtime error

This error is related to using 32-bit Component Object Model (COM) objects on x64 platforms. The current workaround is to create a .bat file that points to the 32-bit cscript file and then use the Windows Scheduler to schedule the .bat file to run. The contents of the .bat file should look similar to the following:
C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\cscript C:\EGP\EGScript1.vbs -l

I don't know how to fix this issue. Could anyone please shed some lights?
