Error: Failed to import appliance

Hello I am getting an error while importing SAS to virtualbox. 

 

Error:

Failed to import appliance.

Callee RC: NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED(0x800706BE.

 

Tried all the available versions of Virtualbox but still the same. When nothing worked I have reinstalled my OS. Tried on Mac and also on windows system. Please help me on this. I am attaching a screen shot with the error message.

 

Any help will be much appriciated.

Explain in detail where you encountered the issue please. 

 

Are you using a 64 bit machine?

Heello Reeza, 

 

   Thanks for your reply. I am getting that error message as soon as  try to import OVF file. Yes I am using a 64 bit machine.

 

Steps that I am following are:

 

1. Installing Virtualbox from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads?_sm_byp=iVVSgJ3HMfR7vg5r 

2. Downloading SAS Unoversity Edition from https://www.sas.com/en_in/software/university-edition/download-software.html#windows

3. Launching and Virtualbox and Clicking on File--> Import Appliance.

4. Navegateing to the file and click on Next and as soon as I do that I get the error.

 

And it is happening in both Windows and OSX, on Laptop or desktop and macbookpro but getting the same error on all the systems.

 

Thanks.

Retry. Starting right from the beginning. 

 

When you download the file make sure it's the correct size, about 1.8 GB 

Move it from your desktop, that used to cause issues. 

 

The thing that confuses me is it not working on any system for you. On a Mac it works no problem for me. 

Make sure to not change any settings in the VM. If you have the option try VMWare, it's seems easier to use for a lot of people.

Hello,

 

      Yes I am able to install it, when ever you download virtual box and SAS try to download both of them in the same location and do not change the location and then install it it will get install. Thanks what I did in my situation.

 

Thanks.
