unable to run simple sas program (from tutorial)

I just installed SAS studio and am following along with the tutorial.

On the very first one, I wrote the following, as per instructed by the video tutorial:

data highchol;

  set sashelp.heart;

  where chol_status= "High";

run;

I hit the run command and the program just stays at "running."  What could be the issue?  This is using Vbox on a mac.

Hi mrdlau,

Were you able to solve this issue? If so, what did you do? I am having similar issue importing csv's into SAS using either PROC IMPORT or INFILE. The machine just stays at 'running'...
