Hello!

I got serious problem trying to install and use SASUniversityEdition on my windows 7. After installation when I click start in the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager it keeps on displaying this message "Failled to open a session for the virtual machine SAS University Edition" Details

The configuration constructor in main failed due to a COM error. Check the release log of the VM for further details. (VERR_MAIN_CONFIG_CONSTRUCTOR_COM_ERROR).

 

Result Code:

E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component:

ConsoleWrap

Interface:

IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

Please I need your help

Re: Assistance

Hi, @siddeeque_83. It looks like you have perhaps changed the operating system to Unbuntu? The operating system should be Red Hat (64-bit). When you important the OVA file, it will have the settings it needs. Please change the operating system back to Red Hat (64-bit) and see if that fixes it.

 

Let us know!
