Reeza, I attached a screen shot. where my path is also /folders/myfolders...but it did not allow me to save. I am actually reading and watching free tutorial from SAS Training where they said to save permanent library as setup.sas then another code file named Orion file to run. But Orion file give error because I could not save the setup.sas file.
I need your help.

Don't see any new attachments. To confirm, you're using SAS UE downloaded from this site on your own PC?
What does the following return:
libname test '/folders/myfolders/';
Worst case scenario you can copy the code and paste into notepad and Save with .sas extension.
Otherwise I recommend contacting SAS UE support, SASAnalyticsU@sas.com
PS. If you post this in the Analytics U forum you get more response.

If you blow that photograph of the error message up you can read the path that is causing the error.
Make sure you use a path that you can write to. You should instead by trying to save to somthing under
Note that a directory named MyFolder is different than one named myfolders. Also a file named Setup.sas is different than one named setup.sas.
Perhaps the issue is that you tried to name the file 'ecprg193/Setup.sas'? You cannot use a '/' in the middle of a filename.
Also if you blow up the photograph you can see that there is a directory name 'ecprg193' under the 'myfolders' directory that SAS UE creates automatically. What is the ICON on the left that is labeled MyFolder ? If you right click on that what properties does it have?

Your path is incorrect but, more importantly, you may have left off a step. The use of shortcuts is described at: https://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/shared_folder_access.htm
What you may not have done is: "If you are running the SAS University Edition vApp using VirtualBox, VMware Workstation Player, VMware Fusion, or VMware Player, these folder shortcuts must be defined as additional shared folders in your virtualization software."
Once you do that, you should be able to access the file with something like:
