unvbasicvapp__9411013__ova__en__sp0__1.txt downloaded not .ova

 

I downloaded: 

SAS University Edition

VirtualBox, ESD

Single user
Non-commercial use

 

The next step was to import "unvbasicvapp__9411013__ova__en__sp0__1.ova " via the Oracle VM Virtual Box Manager, However this was not downloaded as an .ova file but a .txt file and I cannot import it.  Any suggestions?

How big is the file? Are you on Windows, OS or Linux? What makes you think it's a text file, though another user complained about the same thing so it's possible the download is corrupt somehow.  

 

I tried it (right now) and two ova files were downloaded, with both the Windows and OS X options. They are 2.31 GB and show as a plain doc image for me, though the actual extension when viewed is OVA. 

 

Also, you downloaded the file from here, right?

The file size is 141MB. I did the download for Windows. The file automatically opens in notepad and is saved as a .txt file.

I downloaded from the link sent to my email via the sas store:  support.sas.com/edownload/software/dpunve001 virtualbox

That’s not the full file, not sure what’s happening though. The download should start automatically, ignore the email. Try downloading it again and if you don’t get a file that’s 2.3 GB it’s probably time to talk to SAS Tech Support.
