Calcite | Level 5

when you star SAS® University Edition, in the first page that appears I'm seeing  "A shared folder named "myfolders" was not found on the virtual machine. See the FAQ for details". I've already update the SAS university software and the virtual machine software, re -create the sas folder called "myfolders" but nothing works. I have no access to my ecxel data and only have two month to finish my paper.

I really appreciate any help in this issue.

sorry about my English and thank you

Some things that are helpful to mention in your questions though:

What OS are you using (Windows 7, 8, OS X), what virtual machine, VM Ware or Oracle?

Most people have had better luck with the VMWare version.

Have you tried mapping your own shared folder:

What is a shared folder?

The problem could be due to "Oracle VM VirtualBox". Try an older version of Oracle VM VirtualBox.
