Updating the License Code

  1. The wizard should display the License Status window, which shows the authorization status for all detected SPSS components.  Click Next.
  2. On the Product Authorization window, select the button next to Authorized user license (I purchased a single copy of the product).
  3. Click Next.
  4. Enter the new authorization code.
  5. Click Next.  (If you don't have the current code, you can retrieve it by contacting the Technology Service Desk.)   
  6. If successful, the installer should report "Successfully processed all codes." Click Next.
  7. Click Finish.
