I am using Sas via a virtual Machine. Can you please add screenshots of how to load orion file. I have tried everything.

I've got the same problem but in my case the instruction libname orion '/tutorials/eg/data/ecprg1'; doesn't work, I've tried several times but I'm not able to contact with my Orion database to do the tests as the tutorial says in this page (https://support.sas.com/edu/OLTRN/ECPRG193/eclibjr/setup_studio.htm).
My Folder direcotry is C:\SASUniversityEdition\myfolders --> ecprg193 is the folder where the info should be saved.
But each time I execute the instruction I've got the same message: Library ORION does not exist.
What I'm supossed of doing wrong? I paste a few xsl files but I don't go any further than this.

Are you using SAS University Editiom? If so, make sure to follow the SAS UE instructions not the SAS Studio instructions.
Or try the following:

Yes I'm doing the tutorial of SAS University and that's why I feel a bit frustrated failing in something so easy. I've visited both sites to watch the documentation but my program still fails.
I add a print of my screen so you can see that I've added all the folders from the Zip pile.

You've posted the correct links but aren't following the instructions, or using the code I posted. The VM is a separate computer and doesn't have access to your C drive except for your shared drives. To access the shared drive you need to use the path specified in the documentation NOT your usual path.

Oh yes I see, I was looking in the windows files and I should do it in the SAS files. I've changed it as you said but I get this Error while trying to run the program

Thanks. this post solved my problem.. I was using the actual folder location on my local machine and was having the issue. Your post helped me get throught the issue by using the My folders sectoin on the SAS studio and getting the address of ECPRG193 by right clicking and checking the properties and everything worked perfectly.. Thanks for Sharing..

I'm having the same problem as well and I don't think I understand what you mean by "then this is the correct LIBNAME statement to point to the Programming 1 data that is already loaded on the server."
Do you mean that I can just copy that code: libname orion '/tutorials/eg/data/ecprg1'; ?
I tried using the code and it still says the Libary does not exist.
I'm also not sure which version of sas i'm using. I'm using 9.4 but some of the interfaces seems different than mine. I'm using SAS through an App2Go feature through my school.

@Ammiano13 You're using Base SAS and since you're connecting to a school server it's hard to tell you how to set up the drive. You still need to follow the steps of running the program to create the Orion library, but what you access will be different.
When usinng Apps2go does it give you instructions on how to access a shared drive or your local folder? You'd set the folder up there and run the program.
The difficulty is is that you're using a custom set up so we can't answer your question unless we're familiar with your set up. I would recommend talking to classmates or a professor for instructions on setting this up.

You can't assign paths like that in SAS University Edition. Note the use of backward and forward slashes in your path for one.
There's a few FAQ's on how to assign it on here, as well as in the instructions for the University Edition.

I am using Windows Base SAS from a virtual lab and am unable to create the Orion library. Any idea where I need to point it to? Tried everything above to no avail.
