Update your license for SPSS.  It is a very simple procedure. 

  • Go to the IT Help Desk website
    • Go to the menu on the left to “REQUEST AN SPSS CODE”.
    • Select the SPSS version that you want to renew.
    • Enter you user name and password.
    • A code will pop up right away. (be sure to record this code)
  • In the Start menu, select All Programs.
  • In your list of programs, you will see a folder called either SPSS or IBM SPSS Statistics. Open that folder.
  • In that folder, you will see a program called either SPSS License Authorization Wizard or IBM SPSS Statistics License Authorization Wizard.
  • Right-click the License Authorization Wizard icon, and select Run As Administrator.
  • Log in to a Windows user account with full Administrator access rights. (If you do not have a Windows user account with full Administrator rights, please see your local system administrator or technical support provider.)
  • The License Authorization Wizard should then launch.
  • Follow the prompts from this wizard to renew your SPSS.  (You will need to use your code in this process.)
