What To Do When There Are Activation Problems

1- Due to the license agreement and the technical requirements of the renewed license; when the SPSS software is upgraded to a higher version, users should also install the newest version. Older versions can not be used after the upgrade. Date of the license renewals is declared via campus-wide announcements and users are recommended to follow those announcements.

2- SPSS can only be used at METU Campus Network because of the network license manager system in order to comply with the license agreement specifications.

3- For Windows operating systems:

     - Location of the spssprod.inf is in the same folder, open this file with Notepad.
     - Find the line starting with DaemonHost and correct it as follows: DaemonHost=spss.cc.metu.edu.tr
