@lotus9 there is no torrent available for SAS University Edition. I would recommend trying a wired connection to download University Edition. It is a 1.8 GB file, so it will take some time to download. 

 

Like @Reeza said, if you cannot download University Edition, your alternatives are University Edition on AWS or SAS OnDemand for Academics.

Re: Problem downloading SAS university edition

It's a big file, do you have a fast reliable connection?

 

You have two other options but both are probably useless if you don't have a fast reliable connection. 

One is SAS UE via AWS and the other is SAS On Demand, choose the independent learner track. 

 

Additionally you can contact SAS directly at support@sas.com to see if you have any other alternatives.

Yes the connection is reliable and is a 3G GSM connection. I am wondering if there is any torrent available.

 

I think there is a confusion, it is my very first post in SAS community.

3G GSM? Isn't that cellular? What's the download speed on that. My guess is it's to too slow for the almost 2GB file.

Hello Reeza,

          Yup it is cellular and the speed is approxiamtely 1Mbps. However i succeeded to download the whole file this time using internet explorer with the same 3G cellular connection. I dont know what was the problem with firefox and free download managed both failed after 99%. Internet explorer also stoped for few minutes after 99% but atlast it did the job. Smiley Very Happy

Your other question implies you have SAS UE working. I'm confused.
