Just a quick note to anyone having trouble installing SAS (Base or Enterprise Data Miner) in VMWare Fusion on Mac:
If you run setup.exe and the splash screen for the SAS deployment wizard spins for a while and then mysteriously disappears, the remedy is as follows:
1. Turn off Folder Sharing for your VM (the SAS installer writes to some temporary files and doesn’t like the remapping of the home folder to the mac file system)
2. Run setup.exe as Administrator
Once you have installed SAS you can turn Folder Sharing back on.
