Error description

  • You have installed IBM SPSS Statistics 24 and the  Statistics 24
    Custom Dialog Builder Interim Fix 001 from fixcentral
    http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/
    Launch release 24 after installation of the IF001
    Click Extensions -  Install Local Extension Bundle and locate a
    self-created custom dialog *.spe file.
    Click open and you are informed that the Dialog self-created
    custom dialog was successfully  installed to menu Custom > <your
    dialog name>
    Restart Statistics 24 and see on which menu the dialog is
    installed to
    
    You notice:
    The menu location for the dialog is wrong. It is installed to
    Extensions menu instead to a menu CUSTOM as defined on the spe
    file.
    If you open the *.spe file from Customer in release 24 with
    Extensions - Custom dialog Builder for Extensions you see that
    the menu location for this dialog was set to a menu CUSTOM
    between GRAPHS and UTILITIES menu BUT in fact it is installed to
    EXTENSIONS  menu
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in the next Fix Pack. Please refer
    to the Fix Pack schedule at
    https://www.ibm.com/software/analytics/support/fixes/pbi_schedul
    e.html for information on upcoming Fix Packs
    If you encounter the issue described above and it is not
    possible for you to wait for the next FixPack please open a
    Service Request with IBM SPSS Technical Support.
    An Interim Fix was developed to address the issue.
    Please contact Technical Support with reference to APAR PI61112
    and technote 1982551 about about Interim Fix 002 for IBM SPSS
    Statistics 24.0.0.0.
    
    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.
    PLEASE NOTE: The fix will only apply to NEW CDBs. For existing
    CDB that show the issue the user will need to:
    1) Open the SPE file
    2) open the menu editor dialog
    3) Hit OK
    4) Save\Save As the dialog.
    Now if you install this dialog it will install to the Custom
    menu.
    There is no other way to fix the existing CDBs as there is an
    error in how they saved to the Custom location.
