An error occurs when you launch SAS® University Edition on VMware Player software

Hi,

Whenever I am trying to launch SAS University Edition using VMware Player Software, and error message pops up saying "This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However, 64-bit operation is not possible."

 

I am also attaching an image of the error message. 

 

Can you please guide me as to what is to be done?

 

Thank you

Pay attention also to 2nd and 3rd note in VMWARE error message.

Check your BIOS using your computer documentation.

Did you change anything in the VM before starting it up, the OS specifically?
