New VirtualBox users, please install version 5.1.2

[ Edited ]

 

The newest version of VirtualBox released by Oracle has a problem with the SAS University Edtion OVA file. For the time being, please uninstall version 5.1.4 if you have it installed and instead use version 5.1.2 available here:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_5_1

 

We will continue to monitor the situation and update documentation as warranted.

Re: New VirtualBox users, please install version 5.1.0

Hi, I uninstalled VM VirtualBox 5.1.4 and installed 5.1.0 version.

Now  I able to add the SAS University Edition into VM VirtualBox. But when I try to start the SAS University Edition session getting the below error.

 

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).

 

Kindly I request you to advice on this issue.

 

Regards

See this thread as well. Later on someone specifies an option that needs to be clicked.

Hi, @SAS-Study. Yes, that version is fine. This topic was created some time ago. Thanks for learning and using SAS!
