So I just went through the first instance or updating my SAS University Edition.
The instructions were very poor... so in Virtual Box, I deleted the old machine, and re-imported the newly downloaded one. Only to find that all my library links, programs and data is gone!!!
Is there anyway to get this back?
Those files live outside of the virtual machine, so re-importing the new VM would not delete them. In your virtual machine, you have have to set the shared folder to the same location as your previous installation. This is how mine is setup in Oracle VM VirtualBox:
When I updated
The update on the home page wasn't working. So I followed the instructions on the support page to just re-download the file again.
Then it didn't want to update the SAS UE I have in VirtualBox. So I deleted it. Perhaps this deleted my program files.
The SAS Users Group for Administrators (SUGA) is open to all SAS administrators and architects who install, update, manage or maintain a SAS deployment.
