I am attempting to create a package in SCCM to install SAS 9.3.  Per the instructions from SAS, I have created a response file called 'sdwresponse.properties'.  After ensuring the response file is in the same directory as the setup.exe, the command i'm running is:

setup.exe -responsefile sdwresponse.properties

After I enter that, this message pops up:  

I've searched online, and the only thing I've found is some SAS documentation that states to 'be careful' when deploying this application to remote machines.  

Any help would be appreciated.

try the "%~dp0" variable, if the setup.exe and answerfile are in the same folder
eg. setup.exe -quiet -nomsupdate -responsefile "%~dp0sdwresponse.properties"

Try placing quotes. Ejm. (-responsefile "x:\sdwresponse.properties")
Another point  to check, is that the response file generated in SAS 32bit does not work in SAS 64bit

Yes, you need the full path to the response-file. UNC or HTTP
