SAS University Edition Hyperthreading/Virtualization Question

[ Edited ]

Hi, 

 

I just downloaded SAS University Edition and tried to start it within virtual box. However, an error screen pops up with this message: 

 

AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by the host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED).

 

 

Result Code:

E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component:

ConsoleWrap

Interface:

IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

 

I am currently running on windows 10 and have this CPU: amd a6-5200 apu with radeon(tm) hd graphics

 

I checked the CPU capabilities using a software called Speccy and confirmed that virtualization is supported and enabled. However, hyperthreading is not supported by this CPU. I'm having trouble understanding why SAS University is not running and I was wondering if somebody could explain for me? 

 

[EDIT] Follow-up Question: I tried to reinstall SAS University using VMWare Player, and it now successfully runs. However, I still cannot start SAS University using Virtual Box. Does anyone know if there is a reason for this behavior? 

 

Thank you so much!

Thanks for your response. Yes, I have already followed the steps on that page. I verified that my computer/CPU does support virtualization.
