SPSS Version 22 Installation and Licensing Information


Beginning November 1st, SPSS users at Queen's will get warnings that their program will stop working.  As SPSS has released version 22, the decision was made to move to the new version - 22 - at the same time as updating to a new license code.The new version can be installed from CD. 



Installation From CDs


Once you sign and submit the license agreement, you will receive the following:

  • An SPSS program CD to install the software. Contains 32 bit, 64 bit, and mac version of the software.
  • An authorization code. 

The Authorization Code is provided so that you may license a copy of the SPSS 22 software for your machine. The authorization code is not a license. It simply authorizes or permits you to obtain a license for your copy of the software from SPSS via the Internet. Note: This means that ITServices is unable to provide you with a license or license your copy of SPSS 22 for you.


What you need to know about SPSS 22 licenses


  • 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 licenses 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 license 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.

  4. Click on SPSS_Statistics_22_win32_.exe (for 32 bit operating systems) or SPSS_Statistics_22_win64_.exe (for 64 bit operating systems).  Note that if your operating system is XP you should be logged on as an administrator.  For Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 you should right-click the file and choose Run As Administrator
