Unable to import SAS using virtual box

[ Edited ]

I am getting this error when I try to import the ovf file.

 

NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706BE)

 

 

All the files I have downloaded from the website.

That's a weird one, are you using Virtual Box?

 

If so, make sure to move the ova file to somewhere you have write access, My Documents or Downloads usually have restrictions against running applications in those locations. 

 

If it persists, please describe in detail the steps you've completed and where you're running into an error.

 

If you can, consider using VM Workstation instead of Oracle Virtual Box as it's much better for running a Virtual Machine. I do believe there may be a cost for VM workstation, but it's under $100.

@siddhanth092001, can you please renamed the *.ovf file to *.ova? In other words, change the file extention to ".ova". Please let us know if this helps.
