It could be that the file download is incomplete. How large is your file? It should be about 1.65 GB. Also, if could you you are try to install it in a location that requires elevated provileges. What is the path where you are installing it?

 

I'm sure we can get it working for you!

Hi Randy,

My file size is 1.69GB.

The file is saved on my dekstop and on double clicking it , it opens with the VM installed, but throws the aove mentioned error.

My m/c is 64 bit, windows 7, for which I installed a VM version - VirtualBox 5.0.16 for Windows hosts  x86/amd64

@kbajaj2990 Can you take a screenshot of your virtual machine's settings?

 

It should look like this:

@kbajaj2990 Check to see if C:\users\khushboo\Virtual Box VMs\SAS-University-Edition\SAS-University-Edition.vmdk exists. If it does, delete it and try the import again. If it fails, take a screenshot of the failure with the "View Details" expanded.

The file (SAS-University-Edition.vmdk') is is not getting created under folder SAS-University-Edition, as the import process gets ERR out. Please see the screenshot attached below.

You say the file is stored on your desktop? That is the full SAS University Edition folder, unzipped? Can you post a snapshot?

 

All else failing, have you tried redownload the VM and trying again?
