BEx 3.x shortcuts (.3xbex) don't have associated program [WinGUI 7.20]

Hello,

Since we upgraded SAPGUI to 7.20 (in particular SAPGUI version is 7200.1.1.1051) across the whole company, our link to launch BEx Analyzer from a Portal (based on SSO) is not working ok. That link basically tries to execute a BEx 3.x shortcut file (RRMX.3xbex). End users are then getting a popup error windows saying (literally):

This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel.

I could not find any program included in that SAPGUI version being able to open those shortcut BEx files. If you can point me out to the right one or either to SAP note or any other idea I'll be more than thankful.

Thanks very much!

Regards,

Jose M. Prieto
