I'm having trouble with SAS 9.2, having upgraded from 9.1. When I was on 9.1, I would double click on a SAS program and with would open up for me in the program editor.
Now, when I double click on a program, SAS runs it and creates a text file in the same directory (it looks like the log file). I want to change it back so that when I double click on it, it'll open up in the program editor for me.
The SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website has this usage note on the topic - at the bottom is where Windows 7 is discussed, however it still involves using a SAS-supplied utility to deal with file-types and their default launch associations.
Suggested Google advanced search argument, this topic / post:
Looking into your suggestion, it appears I have phase 2 installed and don't need the file type registration utility. Following the instructions for Phase 2, I see that I can only select/unselect files that sas uses. I can't actually select how SAS opens them. In addition, there appears to be an error in the registry when I try to make changes and click OK.
Yes - at this point, you would be best served by contacting SAS tech support, opening a "track" for your problem/situation. The bottom area of the SAS forums discussion website contains a link to open a support track.
