Thank you for advice. I have done it and it worked - I mean I could import file but I have another problem when I try to start virtual machine. Please see below photo. I couldn't open session for virtual machine SAS Univ Edition.

 

Any thoughts ?

I think it should be red hat Linux 64 bit actually. That OS is for the download file, not your computer. You’ve essentially downloaded a unix computer system that has SAS installed and VirtualBox allows you to run it on your computer. Search SAS University Edition Help Center FAQ and you’ll find a help centre. The VT-X issue is common, or search this forum. You have to modify some settings on your machine to get it to work, though I suspect the 32 bit is also an issue.
