Troubleshooting

  • If the installer ISO is corrupted and does not open, then download again with a different web browser. To verify successful download, compare the SHA-256 cryptographic hash value.

  • Open the installer ISO with Finder. If necessary, temporarily disable or uninstall any third-party archive utility.
  • The installer application and License Authorization Wizard (LAW) must be run as an administrator with sufficient access to the /Applications/IBM SPSS Statistics folder. If necessary, switch to an administrator account during installation.
  • The License Authorization Wizard (LAW) requires an unblocked Internet connection with the IBM license server. If necessary, temporarily disable any firewall, anti-malware, or other security software which blocks the connection.
  • The SPSS Statistics 28 authorization code is compatible with SPSS Statistics 28 only. The code is not compatible with another version such as SPSS Statistics 27 nor with another product such as SPSS Amos or SPSS Modeler.
  • If the License Authorization Wizard (LAW) reports successful authorization but SPSS Statistics is still not authorized, send these to ithelp.siu.edu or salukinet@siu.edu:
