Error description

  • You have installed IBBM SPSS Statistics, R, and the IBM SPSS
    Statistics Extension command STATS_RELIMP from the Extension
    Hub.
    You've done this while logged in as the Administrator user and
    all works fine for Administrator.  However, when a
    non-Administrator logs in, the STATS_RELIMP extension command
    fails for want of the underlying 'relaimpo'  R-Package.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    The IBM SPSS Statistics Extension Command installer calls the
    R-Package installer as needed when additional R-Packages are
    required for the given Statistics Extension command.  the
    R-Package installer then downloads and installs the required
    packages under a user-specific path, rather than under the main
    R installation path.
    
    For example:
    C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\R\win-library\3.5'
    instead of
    'C:\Program Files\R\R-3.5.3\library'
    
    To make these resources available to all users, copy the
    contents of the user-specific path to the main R installation
    path.
    

Local fix

  • This issue has been reported to IBM SPSS Statistics Development
    and is targeted for fix in Statistics 26.0 Fixpack 2 (and
    beyond).
