Is there a way to download the application for the Version 8 System Architect Essentials online training and install it on Pega Personal Edition? I downloaded the Exercise VM and was able to do the first exercise, but part way through the 2nd exercise, the VM kept crashing. I downloaded the Personal Edition and got it running and was able to log into it. Can I get the exercise application(s) and install them on it? I would need instructions of how to do that, too.

Unfortunately there is not an option to do the training in the Personal Edition of our software. However it was announce last week that now in addition to the cloud-based exercise environment, you now have access to a downloadable Virtual Machine (VM) for both the SAE and BAE courses. This additional option can be used as an alternative to the cloud option and will remain accessible to you once you have completed the course.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU
There is a new lesson in the courses titled “Completing the Course Exercises” that includes information on both training exercise options. This new page has no impact on your existing work. The cloud-based exercise system is still available through the Open Exercise link on each exercise page. You can continue to use your cloud environment to complete the exercises.
For VM use, a button is now available for you to download the exercise system, along with instructions. If you choose to download the VM, you will have access to a fresh training environment. Work done in the cloud environment is not reflected in the VM environment, and vice versa. When you complete the course, and the cloud exercise environment is no longer available, your access to the VM remains.
