Getting licensing errors right after launching SPSS?

Important: Only computers on campus (or connected via the VPN Client) will be able to access the SPSS license manager.

If you are connected to the UNI campus network, but still receive a licensing error upon launch, check for firewall software blocking the SPSS application from accessing the network.

Purchasing or Leasing

Students wanting their own license of SPSS should consider leasing one of the SPSS GradPacks.

Faculty also have the option to lease a 1-year license of the SPSS Faculty Pack. The SPSS Faculty Pack combines the full SPSS Base product, with no limitations, plus an additional 12 add-on modules for extended functionality: Advanced Models, Regression Models, Conjoint, Categories, Tables, Trends, Exact Tests, Maps, Complex Samples, Missing Values, Data Validation, and Classification Trees.
