Hi,

 

I installed sas university edition today on my windows 10 laptop. and I am using Oracle VM.when I click on Start SAS studio, I am getting the unknown status error.

I have myfolders in c:/user/username/document/SASUniversityEdition folder.I tried putting the folder in C drive and changing processor from 2 to 1. 

It is not working.

Hi @ushakrishna2k,

 

Take a look at this topic in the SAS University Edition FAQ and see if that solves your problem:  

What do I do if I see an unknown status error?

 

Hope that helps!

thanks,

Jennifer

I found another scenario that can cause this to occur:

 

Configuration:

Using Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager, version 5.1.30 (and ..28 too)

Windows 10 Pro with most all updates thru 10/2017

Intel Quad CPU Q9550

 

In the VBM I had Settings->System->Processor set to 2 by the installer.

I changed this to 4 virtual cpus and got the error. Also with 3 virtual cpus.

 

When I reset it back to 2 every works fine.

 

I can set it to 2/4/2/4 and get a 100% works/fails correlation.

 

==========

 

Note to SAS developers: It's pretty lame to have an error message that says "unknown status" and not say what the status was that was received and what call you made that caused it. How is anyone expected to debug this??
