License Activation Procedures for Windows

SPSS Software licenses are leased on a fiscal year basis. License fees grant you the Right To Use (RTU) the software for the current fiscal year which runs from September 1 through August 31 of the following calendar year. Each SPSS license leased from SDS entitles you to install SPSS software on one computer only. Sharing of licenses, either by using a central key server (in a lab environment, for example) or by purchasing one license and installing the software at work and at home (work-at-home use) are not permitted.

Departments may purchase the software for installation on University-owned computers; faculty, Staff, and Students can purchase the software for use on personally-owned computers.

Note: License fees are not pro-rated.

Updates and Upgrades

Through TXShop, currently licensed users can upgrade for free once the new version is available to SDS. A new license does not need to be purchased in order to upgrade.

SDS only distributes the latest releases of software and will send announcements to currently licensed users when a new version is available.
