SPSS License Code Installation: General Information

Customers who have renewed their SPSS licensing with Software Sales and Distribution (SDS) should expect to receive license codes by email each fall, typically towards the end of September. License codes are unique to SPSS versions, so it is important that you use the proper code to update your license. If you try to apply a license code and receive an error, first make sure that the version indicated in the license code email matches the version of SPSS that you are running.

After installation is complete, you must either enable a temporary trial license or obtain a license by using the License Authorization Wizard.

Licenses are tied to your computer's hardware by a lock code. If you replace your hard drive you will need to contact SDS. In addition, if you wish to transfer your license from one machine to another machine, you must contact SDS.

Note: SPSS licenses are sensitive to operating system time changes. If you change the system time and are then unable to use the software, please contact SDS.
