I have 20 years of experience with SAS, but with SAS Studio, I'm having difficulty even writing a libname statement.
How do I do this simple thing in SAS Studio and find a data ABC in it?
libname here "C:/temp";

What VM software are you using? If this is configured correctly I think you need to use something like:
/folders/myshortcuts/folder-name in your LIBNAME statement not a drive letter.

An easy way to assign a lifref in SAS Studio (regardless of whether you're using University Edition, regular SAS, or whatever) is to right click on the folder in the files & folders navigation then select create then library. It takes care of getting the path correct. You can also copy the path from there to use in a LIBNAME statement if you'd really prefer to write your own. If you do it that way, can you see the permanent data sets you've created?

I'm using Oracle VM Virtual Box and I'm using Windows 8.
I read explanations many times, but I'm still having difficulty. May I put it this way?
If I put a sas dataset called abc.sas7bdat (I created this using regular SAS) say in "C:\SASUniversityEdition\myfolders," should I be able to read that file in SAS (using the free version of SAS)? If Yes, I will try to read more and figure out.
