Unable to download the whole sas university app zip file

Hi!

 

I am unable to download the whole sas university edition app. What I always get is the .ova file.

 

Can anyone please help me with this?

 

I already got my profile. Did all the steps. I just can't import the app because I only got the .ova file.

Please read the instructions.

 

The download from SAS is only an OVA file. You also need the Virtual Box from Oracle, that allows you to open the OVA file. In addition, you need to set up the shared drive. 

 

Again, there is a file with instructions when you go to download the app. Read it Smiley Happy

 

Here's the link to the PDF

It always says "Failed to import appliance....

VMDK: Compressed image is corrupted 'C: .....\SAS_University_Edition.vmdk'
(VERR_ZIP_CORRUPTED)."

What can be done about this?

Kind regards

What size is your Ova file? Start over, redownload Vbox and SAS and try again.

Dear Reeza,

 

Thank you for your help! I was able to download the ova file just yesterday using strong internet connection. I have no issues anymore.
