"An error occurred executing the workspace job"

Hello all,

I have a large-scale SAS program that I've had completed and functional for quite sometime now. However, I've just transferred to a new computer at work, and after re installing SAS now when I run the program I receive

"An error occurred executing the workspace job 'Exec_AllModels'.

SDS Failed to provide the decoder for the data set. Could not load file or assembly 'System.EnterpriseServices, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80071128"

-I've searched around on Google, and found some people with a similar problem, but not much information or answers provided.

-Also, curiously, the entire program runs and still produces all of the correct output...but I still assume something must be going wrong somewhere and would like to get the issue fixed.

The only thing that has changed from the last error-free run of the program is I am now running SAS from a new computer; however the computer is still a Windows XP 32 bit HP machine -- just with more RAM and a faster CPU. Also I am still using the same version of SAS Smiley FrustratedAS 9.2 Enterprise Guide 4.3, and all of the program's code has gone unchanged.

Please let me know any information that you may have.

Thanks!

-Ryan

This is a hot candidate for a ticket to SAS tech support.

New PC?  It sounds like you might have an installation problem.  EG 4.3 requires Microsoft .NET 3.5SP1, and you might be missing the "SP1" part.

This comes with the EG installer and should have been put on the machine by the standard SAS system requirements wizard, but if you need to apply it manually:

A promising suggestion, but unfortunately I have verified that I do have .NET3.5SP1 installed on my machine, and so that is not the issue...again I think the strangest part is the program executes to completion, successfully, producing the correct output each time - however this error message is occurring and is quite troubling because nothing seems to be wrong with the actual setup or execution of the software.

Re: "An error occurred executing the workspace job"

In reviewing all known tracks we've had with this error, the resolution has always been tracked to a Microsoft .NET installation problem.

You might try using the .NET install verification tool to check this possibility:
