Error description

  • In Statistics 22.0 for Mac you were able to launch the product
    and load a file simply by double-clicking an SPSS Statistics
    file type  (.sav, .sps, .spv,).
    
    In Statistics 23.0 the product launches but does not load.  If
    the product is already running, and you click a data file
    (*.sav) you get a message saying SPSSStatistics can't be opened.
    
    Workaround:  With Statistics already open, you can drag the
    desired SPSS Statistics file onto the running application to
    load it in a new window.
    

Local fix

  • This behavior is seemingly due to a difference in the Finder
    between Mac OS X 10.9 and 10.10.  IBM SPSS Statistics
    Development is working closely with Apple to remedy this issue's
    effect in our product.
    
    This issue will be addressed in a future release.
