Instructions (Site License)

These instructions are for installing IBM SPSS Statistics for Windows using a site license. A site license allows you to install SPSS Statistics for Windows on as many computers as the number of licenses you purchased. This document is for end users who are installing SPSS Statistics for Windows on desktop computers.

Before starting installation, be sure your system date is correct,

Changing the system date after installation may make your license invalid!

After installation, be sure to install latest patches.

See "Problems,

Bugs… " for more info.

System Requirements for IBM SPSS Statistics

Operating System

 Microsoft® Windows XP (32-bit), Vista (32 or 64 bit), or Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit).

Hardware Configuration

 Intel or AMD processor, 1GHz or higher.  1 GB of RAM or more.

 800 MB of available hard-disk space.

Installing IBM SPSS Statistics

Before Starting Installation

 Make sure you have administrator privileges.  Make sure your system date is correct!

 If you have an earlier version of SPSS or PASW, installing IBM SPSS Statistics 20 will not replace it. You may want to uninstall the older version once you have confirmed that everything is working. If you have customized menus or toolbars, they will not automatically carry over to the new version.

 If you still have SPSS 15 on your system, note that if you open it, files with *.sav, *.sps extensions will be re-registered to SPSS 15 – double-clicking one of these files will open them in the SPSS 15, not IBM SPSS Statistics 20. See "File Associations" for how to correct this.

Starting Installation Windows XP

 When download is complete, Double-click the downloaded file to begin installation.  Select Run, and follow the instructions that appear on the screen. See “During

Installation” below for further instructions.

Windows Vista or Windows 7

 Right-click the downloaded file and choose Run as Administrator.

 Select Run, and follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Refer to “During

Installation” for further instructions.

During Installation

License type. Be sure to select Site License.

Read and accept the license agreement. Proceed through the dialogs.

Destination Folder: The default location does NOT replace earlier versions of SPSS/PASW. After successful installation of IBM SPSS Statistics 20, you can uninstall earlier versions.

Help language. SPSS Statistics provides the ability to change the user interface language. If you want the help language to always match the user interface language, select the languages you may use. Installing help for additional languages increases disk space requirements by 60-70 MB for each language.

Licensing Your Product

After the main part of the installation is complete, click OK on the "License and Registration" screen to launch the License Authorization Wizard. The License


Authorization Wizard allows you to obtain a license for SPSS Statistics for Windows.

Note: Licenses are tied to your computer’s hardware with a lock code. If you replace your computer or its hardware, you will have a new lock code and will need to repeat the authorization process. If you find that you exceeded the allowable number of

authorizations specified in the license agreement, contact OIT Administrative Desk. If you need to re-install on the same hardware, be sure to save your license first. See

"Reinstallation" for instructions.

Warning! The license is sensitive to time changes. If you must change the system time and then cannot run the product, contact OIT Administrative Desk.

Using the License Authorization Wizard

Note: If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may be prompted for administrator credentials. Without the correct credentials, you will not be able to run the License Authorization Wizard.

 If you don’t launch the License Authorization Wizard during installation, you can launch it later. You must run it as Administrator.

 From the Windows Start menu, Choose IBM SPSS Statistics → License

Authorization Wizard. On Windows Vista or Windows 7, right-click the License Authorization shortcut and choose "Run as Administrator".

 When prompted, chooseLicense my product now


Enter the authorization code you got from OIT. (Use ctrl-v to Paste the authorization code into the License

Authorization dialog.) You can use an authorization code for only as many

installations as specified on your license. If you need to reinstall SPSS Statistics on

the same machine, see "Reinstallation" for how to preserve your license.

 If you only want to use SPSS Statistics on this machine for a short time, select


Enable a temporary trial period

". See "Enabling a Trial License" below for


The License Authorization Wizard sends your authorization code over the Internet to IBM SPSS and automatically retrieves your license. If your computer is behind a proxy, click

Configure proxy settings and enter the appropriate settings. Firewalls may prevent

successful licensing over the Internet.

If the authorization process fails

(for example, due to a firewall), you will be

prompted to send an e-mail message. The message must include your authorization code, "lock code", and SPSS version. The lock code is displayed on the Product Authorization screen of the License Authorization Wizard.

 If you choose the desktop option, a new message with the appropriate information will be created automatically.

 If you choose the Web-based option, copy and paste the message text from the License Authorization Wizard into your e-mail application, and send to the address shown.

 When the license code arrives (which may be almost immediately), if you've closed the License Authorization Wizard, restart it. Select License my product now, and paste the


license you got in the email from IBM (not the Authorization code) into the Enter Codes panel. Click Next.

Note: Use ctrl-v to Paste the license into the License Authorization dialog.

Enabling a Trial License

You can enable a 14-day trial license instead of installing the regular license.

 Launch the License Authorization Wizard. Choose Enable a temporary trial period.  At the Trial License prompt, click the Browse button to locate trial.txt . The Trial

License Wizard will find the license from the file in the SPSS installation directory and automatically fill in the box. Finish the Authorization wizard.

File Associations

If you have SPSS 15 on your machine, then opening that will result in spss file associations reverting to SPSS 15. This means when you double-click an spss file, it will open SPSS 15, rather than SPSS Statistics 20. After the SPSS 15 license expires, it will continue to attempt to open, but will fail.

To remedy the situation, you will need to uninstall SPSS 15, then uninstall and reinstall SPSS Statistics 20. Before you uninstall SPSS Statistics 20, be sure to preserve your license

file. See Reinstallation. Alternatively, instead of re-installing SPSS Statistics 20, you could re-set the file associations for *.sav and *.sps files to open with IBM SPSS Statistics 20. However, for machines with multiple logons, this would have to be done on each user's logon.


Your SPSS license is locked to your machine. You cannot re-use your authorization code in order to retrieve your license. You must save your license file before uninstalling IBM SPSS Statistics.

 Using My Computer, browse to the IBM SPSS Statistics 20 installation folder.  Copy the file lservrc to another location. This is your license file.

 Double-click your installation file to re-start installation.  On the "Program Maintenance" screen, select "Remove".  After removal is complete, re-install IBM SPSS Statistics 20.

 When you get to the Licensing step, select Cancel. You cannot use the License Wizard to restore your license.

After installation is complete, copy your license file, lservc, back to the IBM SPSS Statistics 20 installation directory.

Download and re-install any patches.

SPSS Legacy Viewer

SPSS Statistics 20 cannot read output (*.spo) files created by SPSS 15 or earlier. In order to read these files you must download and install the SPSS Legacy Viewer (aka SPSS



Download Legacy Viewer from


 Log on to your computer with administrator privileges.

 Using an unzip utility, extract the contents of LegacyViewer.zip to a

temporary location on your hard drive. For example, "c:\temp".

 Windows XP: Double-click setup.exe from the temporary location, e.g.


 Windows Vista or 7: Right-click setup.exe from the temporary

location, e.g. "c:\temp\setup.exe", and choose "Run as Administrator".

 Accept the license terms and proceed through the remainder of the

installation wizard, accepting the defaults.

Setting Legacy Viewer File Association

*.spo files are not automatically associated with SPSS Legacy Viewer. After installing the Legacy Viewer, you need to manually set the association so double-clicking a *.spo file will open the file using SPSS Legacy Viewer:

 Right-click a *.spo file, select Properties.  Next to "Opens with", click "Change"

 On the "Open With" dialog, click "Browse". (Do NOT select SPSS/PASW from the list.)

 Browse to "C:\Program Files\SPSS Viewer" folder  Select spssnav.exe

 Click Open

 Check "Always use the selected program for this kind of file"  Click OK


The Command Syntax Reference manual is automatically loaded with SPSS Statistics. Other documentation can be downloaded from


or from the SPSS Support website (which requires registration).

All documentation is in pdf format, which requires Acrobat Reader. If you don’t already have Acrobat Reader, download it from http://www.adobe.com.

Enabling Programmability

IBM® SPSS® Statistics Integration Plug-ins enable you to extend the command syntax language with programs written in R, Python, and VB.NET. For more information, visit IBM Developer Works,

(https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/groups/service/html/allcommunities). Under Public Groups, click SPSS.


Updating, Modifying, and Renewing SPSS Statistics

If you purchase additional add-on modules or renew your license, you will receive additional authorization code(s). For instructions on using the authorization code(s), see “Licensing Your Product”.

The following is list of changes incompatibilities with past releases

Viewer files (*.spo) created in versions prior to SPSS 16.0 cannot be opened in SPSS 16.0 or later. You must use the Legacy Viewer to open *.spo files.

The IGRAPH (InteractiveGraphics) user interface has been discontinued. Saved IGRAPH syntax still runs, but will be discontinued in a future release. A Syntax Converter is available for converting saved IGRAPH syntax to GGPAPH syntax. See Help → Topics. Type "syntax converter" into the search box. Select "TABLES and IGRAPH Command Syntax Converter" from the search results.

TableLooks created in versions prior to SPSS 16.0 cannot be used in SPSS 16.0 or later versions.

SPSS Tables Original (Basic Tables, General Tables, Multiple Response Tables, Tables of Frequencies) user interface is no longer available. Convert your TABLES syntax to CTABLES syntax using the syntax converter. See Help → Topics. Type "syntax converter" into the search box. Select "TABLES and IGRAPH Command Syntax Converter" from the search results.

SPSS Production Facility jobs (*.spp) created in SPSS 15 or earlier must be converted to release 16.0 and later format (*.spj). A conversion utility is available to do this. See Help → Topics. Type "production facility" into the search box. Select "Converting Production Facility files" from the search results.

The Draft Viewer is no longer supported. There are two alternatives for creating text output similar to the Draft Viewer. You can Export viewer output with text options, or use the Output Management System (OMS).
