System requirements and installation

Known issues

At time of publication, the following issues were known.

  • If you receive Error 1722 when installing on Windows 10 or Windows 2016, restart the machine and try installing again. This is caused by recent security changes to these Windows environments.
  • For a multiple line chart with a scale variable on the X-axis, when you Copy As --> Microsoft Office Graphics Object and then paste into Excel, many of the categories will be missing.
  • For a date chart with line variable on the X axis, when you Copy As --> Microsoft Office Graphics Object and then paste into Word or Excel (Paste Special as a Microsoft Office Graphics Object), the pasted chart will be empty.
  • The Print sub-command on the Alter Type command displays the numeric portion of a string value that was converted to numeric.  Instead, the Print sub-command should display the values with numeric and alpha characters as sysmis. Note that if the numeric format is change from f1 to f2, the values do display as sysmis on the Print sub-command.
  • Statistics jobs in the IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services Repository will fail if the Statistics Server is configured to use an SSL connection.
  • Statistics client cannot connect to GSKit SSL UNIX servers.
