Error description

  • You have installed IBM SPSS Statistics 24. In prior releases
    (for example release Statistics 23) you were used to see some
    executable files on program installation directory, for example
    on a Windows Computer these files were:
    
    lswhere.exe, lsmon.exe and lslic.exe
    
    However, for release 24 you do no longer see these executable
    files on the client installation path.
    To use lswhere.exe for example was useful for troubleshooting in
    the past when the client was installed with concurrent (network)
    license.
    When you run lswhere.exe on Client for example, you could see if
    the connection to license server was established or not, so you
    wonder why these files were removed from Client installation.
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development.
    

Local fix

  • The files were removed from Client installations by intention as
    they are normally only used on the Computer where the Concurrent
    license Manager is installed.
    However, for troubleshooting purposes it is considered to maybe
    put these files back to Client installations in a future
    release.
    Furthermore, these utilities have been discontinued by Sentinel
    and old utilities do not work properly with new versions.
