XCMD in Enterprise Guide 4.2

I am using Enterprise Guide 4.2 and Base SAS 9.2 stand alone on a PC and would like to use the x command to copy a file in a Windows environment from one location to another.

The XCMD option in a SAS session displays that the X command is valid for the session.
But I can't get it to work using Enterprise Guide. Here the XCMD option displays still NOT valid.

Please help
Thanks

Hi:
If you search support.sas.com using this string:
X command Enterprise Guide
...you will come up with several relevant hits. This is just one of them:

You may have seen it already, but take a look at this:

Let me know if it helps.

Chris,

The change in the registered SAS command that SAS Enterprise Guide uses did the trick, all other suggestions are based on a situation where a server is in place.
My situation is a standalone desktop where both SAS Base and SAS Enterprise Guide are installed.

Thanks again.
Henk

PS, I bookmarked the sasdummy website for further references.
