HOW DO I ACCESS THE CONTENTS OF A SAS ENTERPRISE GUIDE PROJECT OUTSIDE OF SAS ENTERPRISE GUIDE

The following method was suggested by Robert Meekings, Legal Services Commission.

Important: SAS does not support this method so make sure to create a copy of your Enterprise Guide project as it may damage the project.

"During a recent upgrade we were unable to access projects created with Enterprise Guide 3. Whilst waiting for the software to be re-installed, we needed access to these files and discovered that the following process would accomplish this.

  1. Create a copy of your Enterprise Guide project.
  2. Rename the copy of the project with a .zip extension, e.g. Test.zip
  3. Double-click to open Test.zip with your favorite zip archive software.

You should now be able to access and see the contents of your Enterprise Guide project as folders in the directory specified."

See the following SAS Blog posts describing supported methods of doing this:
