Re: SAS cannot read or find myfolders

 

Detailed solution here. Note that it's case sensitive. Your folder should be in lower case and in the path as well.

In general, most problems you'll run into will have the solution here:

Re: SAS cannot read or find myfolders

Hi!

I'm brand new to SAS as well! I'm using SAS University Edition and I am struggling to get it to find myfolders as well - any thoughts on what I could be doing wrong? I have followed the steps listed in the SAS University Edition Help Centre on how to create a shared folder in VirtualBox (http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/shared_folder_virtualbox.htm) - but I still can't find it in SAS. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Re: SAS cannot read or find myfolders

@BAC After setting up myfolders - make sure it's spelled exactly, lower case and s - restart both your VMand your browser. Then try again. If you cannot get it set up include some snapshots of your myfolders on your computer, in the shared folder settings in Virtual Box and any errors you get in SAS UE. 

 

It's also probably easier to ask your own question.
