02. October 2023 - Service AnnouncementSPSS licences: Problems with Mac installations

Dear users,

There are currently problems with Mac installations of the IBM-SPSS-Statistics software. The software does not switch to the so-called Grace Period (transition period, which allows further use of the software for 4 weeks) after the expiry of the licence on 01.10.2023 as expected and assured by our supplier, and the software can no longer be started. Our supplier has been informed and we have submitted a support request. As soon as there is new information, you will be informed here.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Proposed solution:

This bug is fixed by the current fixpack. You can find the fixpack at: https://heibox.uni-heidelberg.de/d/3a9dd6bf0a7948d7af7c/?p=%2FSPSS%20St…  

You will get the password to the directory when ordering SPSS. Log on to the terminal server of the University of Heidelberg from your computer and start the program there. A description of how to log on to the terminal server can be found in the linked service catalog.
