Error description

  • You are in the process of adding  SPSS Statistics 28 to your
    virtual desktop environment. For this you make a software
    package with fixed settings for your users.
    In previous packages you used the SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH variable to
    make sure new extensions are installed on the H:drive and not at
    the default location, since the default location is not saved in
    the user profile of the virtual desktop session.
    However, in SPSS v28 you lose the Python extensions when you use
    the SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH variable.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in a future release.
    
    An Interim Fix was developed for customers who need the fix
    prior to the next release.

    Note: Interim fixes are limited corrections to specific issues
    reported by one or more customers. They are normally sent only
    to customers who have reported one of the corrected problems,
    and who require  an immediate correction. Interim Fixes do not
    address customer enhancement requests, and not all defect
    corrections can be delivered as Interim Fixes. Due to their
    urgency Interim Fixes undergo only targeted testing of specific
    fixes, not full regression testing. If the fix is not urgently
    required, you may prefer to wait for a scheduled Fix Pack
    Release, which will be fully regression tested. Interim Fix
    corrections, once fully regression tested, are automatically
    included in a future Fix Pack.
