Spss 20 Mac Os X

Spss 20 mac os x 10.11

I use SPSS 21 and i'm not sure yet if i should upgrade to Mavericks, in case SPSS stops working. I had this problem last year when i upgraded my Mac OS to Mountain Lion (10.8), and i had to buy SPSS 21 in order for it to work (SPSS v21 is supported by Mountain Lion). I wonder if the new SPSS version 22 will run on Mavericks. Solve business and research problems using SPSS for Mac OS X.

If you ever have to reinstall SPSS on your Mac, you may encounter the following error message:

Spss 20 Mac Os X

Install has detected the presence of SPSS 16.0 Graduate Student Version for Mac. Please uninstall the existing version before installing this version of the product.

This message may appear even if you used the SPSS uninstaller to remove the previous version. The solution, as reported in this blog post, is to manually delete the “InstallShield” folder from your home directory before running the SPSS installer. Who would’ve thought?
