I need access to help files in SPSS Statistics v21, it's the demo version. I cannot run the tutorial nor browse the topics. If I click on Help/Topics my browser opens this site (http://www.minmašin.com:61977/help/topic/com.ibm.spss.statistics.help/overvw_auto_0.htm) with error that the server cannot be found. How do I fix this?

Re: Help files are inaccessible in IBM SPSS Statistics version 21 trial2012-12-31T17:46:07Z in response to SystemAdminI have no idea why the help is misbehaving. Do you recognize the first part of that url (www.minmasin.com. I left out the accent.)? The url would normally start with your machine name.
But you can access all the help online. For help file format, try
This link and the link to pdf are listed in the bookmarks section of the SPSS Community site.
Re: Help files are inaccessible in IBM SPSS Statistics version 21 trial2012-12-31T18:19:10Z in response to SystemAdminYes, I do recognise the first part, the name of my PC is "minmašin". I just don't know why the site is inaccessible. Maybe the software doesn't like the accent. I found out the web and pdf versions of the help but I want it in my SPSS. It's much more fun to learn and work with built-in help and tutorials. Because of this feature I like SPSS so much and now it's just not working. Thanks for the workarounds info though.
Best regards and happy new year to everyone!
Re: Help files are inaccessible in IBM SPSS Statistics version 21 trial2012-12-31T18:39:56Z in response to SystemAdminHahaha, just changed the name of my PC from minmašin to minmasin and all the help works. Insane idea... but it worked.
Thanks for focusing me into right direction.
