About the installation

  • Licenses are tied to your computer's hardware with a lock code. If you replace your computer or its hardware, the SPSS software will no longer function because your machine's lock code will have changed. You will need to repeat the authorization process to license your copy of SPSS software.
  • SPSS software licences are linked to your computer's system clock at the time of installation and are therefore highly sensitive to time changes of your computer clock. If you change the system time on your computer, the product may stop functioning. SPSS technical support will need the lock code of your computer in order to generate a new licence for your computer. Please ensure that your computer's date and time are set correctly before you install SPSS software.
  • To install SPSS software, you must be logged on to your computer with administrator privileges.
