System requirements and installation

Known issues

  • The new Workbook feature does not support exporting to Microsoft PowerPoint.
  • The new Workbook feature does not support COM or Python scripting.
  • Connection failure with Gskit SSL and IBM SPSS Statistics Server
    Using Deployment Manager to connect to the IBM SPSS Statistics Server results in a connection failure when Gskit SSL is enabled on Linux/zlinux/pLinux server. The workaround is to disable SSL, or manually configure the server's statisticsd.conf configuration file, which is located under the server installation directory.
