Error message in initial start up of SAS University Edition

After installing Virtual box 5.1.0 and SAS University Edition, I got this error when I tried to start it:

 

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine SAS University Edition_1.

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:NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:ConsoleWrap
Interface:

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

 

I use a mac. What do I do? Please help if you can.
