@JonDickens1607 Hi Jon! Unfortunately since the Bin Continuous Data Task is a high-performance statistics task, it is not included in SAS University Edition
"The high-performance tasks and the econometric tasks that ship with SAS Studio are not available in the SAS University Edition." (from: http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/limitations.htm)

I am trying to update the SAS university edition as I have downloaded the OVA file and when I am launching the SAS studio it is showing a message "The system is applying the updates" but the progress bar is not progressing as I have initiated the update from past half an hour
Kindly provide me the resolution for the same

For now, I would suggest to download the new version from here. While the update is more convenient, and I apologize that it didn't work for you, I do think in the long run, it's most expeditious to just download the newest ".ova" file and install it. If you've set up your Shared Folders, there should be no harm in re-importing.

Thank you, Randy. It worked, meaning the program downloaded and it is running. But SAS Studio still says:
|The download completed successfully. To apply the updates now, click Update. Seedetails about the updates.|

Here is what I would suggest: If you are able to start SAS Studio without applying updates, just do that so you can move forward.
Generally, purging any cookies related to SAS University Edition will remove that notice to apply updates. If it doesn't, I would then also send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-919-677-8008 so we can look into the issue. That shouldn't be the case.
Again, I apologize for your

I have successfully updated SAS university edition, however, I can't retrievethe files I was working on in the previous version. Is there any way I can get them back?

Hi, @fcaron. My suspicion is that you just need to re-establish your Shared Foder.
Here's how you do that:
Or see Step 3 in the Quick Start guide:

Hmm, that may be the case. You would have gotten a warning in the Information Center each time you started SAS University Edition. Do you recall that?
If you really did store them in the VM, then whether you can get them back will depend on whether your removed the files associated with the VM. Perhaps you had a Shared Folder and just have forgotten where it is on your disk?
