The REN/RENAME command takes quotes " instead of single quotes ' for the file parameters.

Well. It depends upon what version of Qlikview you are using.

Go through the below link. It's clearly explained. Let me know if you need more help or screenshot etc.

hello

be careful that your command is incorrect. You can't put a path in the renamed file name

EXECUTE cmd.exe /C rename 'D:\AA.XLSX'  'BB.XLSX' ;

Can you try putting the fie to be renamed in the same directory of cmd.exe and try . If this works then there is some error in the command else security has to be corrected.
