I want to study for the Advanced Programmer certification and was pleased to see the announcement about the free download.
I went through the steps described but when I got to the actual download I got this message:
"Oops! Your profile does not have permission to complete this download."
What can I do to fix this?
This previous forum posting indicates that this was a problem last weekend and it looks like the fix was to try again.

I see you were able to download today, the 16th, but it has failed twice for me today. Not having a site number, makes it impossible to open a track with Tech Support so I guess I'll wait through another two hours of download - attempt.
Chrome (for example) doesn't see the .ova file as a downloadable object, so it tries to open it in a window. SAS then counts this as a successful download.
The simplest thing would be for SAS to wrap these in zip files.
It's basically bad implementation on SAS' part. They may have only tested this on one older browser.
