How do I update my SPSS Licence?

The licence code of SPSS needs to be updated yearly. 

When the current licence is due to expire SPSS will display a message warning you about this. 

Just before the licence expires the Library will send an email to your student account with the new licence code. 

To enter the new code you will need to open the SPSS Authorisation Wizard. 



Windows
 

  1. Use the search option on the bottom left of the Taskbar.
     
  2. Search for and select 'SPSS Licence Authorisation Wizard' from the search results.
     
  3. The Licence Authorisation Wizard will launch.
     
  4. The Wizard will display the Licence Status window, which shows the authorisation status for all detected SPSS components. Click Next.
     
  5. In the Product Authorisation window, select Authorised User Licence (I purchased a single copy of the product).
