How to Install SPSS 11.5 and Related Products
for Microsoft Windows
The Statistical Consulting Center
If you are installing or renewing SPSS on a single PC, this brief guide should be all you will need. Instructions that are more
detailed are on the SPSS CD. If you need assistance, call the Helpdesk at 974-9900, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the
SCC walk-in support area at 200 Stokely Management Center. All UT students, faculty, and staff researchers can get up to 10 hours
of free assistance for their statistical computing needs each semester. See oit.utk.edu/scc for details. We also offer training in SPSS
each semester. See web.utk.edu/~training for details.
You may use one SPSS license on second computer such as office/home or desktop/laptop so long as only one copy is in use at any
time. Server versions are available for Windows and various versions of UNIX. The per-user cost is the same as for the desktop
version, up to a maximum charge of 10 users. These licenses are legal only for University work. If you perform the analysis for the
benefit of an outside organization, you need to purchase a separate commercial license even if you do not charge that organization.
Commercial licenses are available directly from the company for around $2,200. You can order one at
• Windows ME, 98, NT 4.0 with Service Pack 6, 2000 or XP.
• A graphics adapter set at least to 800 by 600 resolution.
• A Pentium-class processor.
• 16 megabytes of random-access memory. 64 or more is recommended.
• At least 91 megabytes of free disk space for the SPSS files plus 80 megabytes free for swap space.
• If you run Windows NT, you must install Service Pack 3 or later for the Help system to work.
1. Before beginning the installation process, exit all other programs and make sure that you turn off any virus protection software you may be
2. If you have SPSS 7.5 or later currently installed, we recommend that you not uninstall the previous version. Instead, install SPSS in the same
folder and all of your current settings will be maintained.
3. To begin the installation process, insert the SPSS CD into your CD drive (not the Suite CD). The Windows AutoPlay feature will start the
setup process. If this doesn't happen, simply double-click on the SETUP.EXE file on the CD. When the setup window appears, start the
installation by selecting Install SPSS with a single click of the mouse.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions until you reach the User Information screen. Fill in your name, The University of Tennessee as the
organization and the serial number 19239001. Then click the Next button.
5. On the Setup Type screen, the Typical installation should suffice. It will install the most popular parts of the package, including the Statistics
Coach. The Statistics Coach requires the use of Internet Explorer, which it can install for you. The Custom choice allows you to skip any parts
you don't want to install and allows users of the SPSS command language to install an online version of the Syntax Guide. Then click Next.
6. On the Personal or Shared screen choose Personal unless you are a network administrator. Then click Next.
7. On the Product License Codes screen enter the following numbers complete with the spaces as shown below:
30161 34497 72753 04210 91599 3612 then click Update, and then click Next. If the program complains at this point, check the
numbers very carefully and make sure that you have entered the spaces between the numbers. This code expires June 1st, 2003. See What to
Do When SPSS Expires below for renewal information.
8. On the Select Options screen we recommend that you leave all of the options selected. You may not need some of these pieces, but we
recommend installing them now because they take little extra space and may make it easier for one of our consultants to help you with future
9. Continue following the online instructions until the process is finished.
10. If you install the Mapping feature, it will give you a set of maps that will meet most needs. However there are many more detailed maps on
the CD in the Geosets directory. See that directory for instructions on how to install other maps.
11. To access data in many database formats such as Microsoft Access, see the Individual Installation Instructions on the SPSS CD for how to
install the Database Drivers.
Updates and Repairs
SPSS Inc. maintains a web site that allows you to download updates and repairs or "patches" to many of their products. You can
check to see if any new patches are available for the programs you use by looking at
There are a number of ways to learn how to use SPSS, including books, instructor- and computer-based training. The SPSS
Base User’s Guide is very well written. It is available at the UT Book and Supply Store. Also, a complete set of SPSS
manuals is on reserve at the Hodges Library. The staff of the Statistical Consulting Center teaches hands-on courses each
semester. The web page that has course descriptions and a registration form is at http://web.utk.edu/~training.
The SPSS package itself contains a brief tutorial that is started by choosing Tutorial from the Help menu. The Help menu
offers extensive online help and also contains the Statistics Coach, which can help you to decide what analysis to use. Also,
the SPSS CD includes Survey Tips, a very helpful introduction to survey design.
The SPSS Suite CD, available for a minor media cost, contains a library of reference books on research methods and SPSS
techniques called the Training Online Course Guides. The guides are designed to accompany training offered by SPSS
personnel but also work well as textbooks on the subjects. They are stored in Adobe Portable Document Format and so can
be read and printed on both PCs and Macintoshes.
The SPSS Suite CD also contains interactive computer-based training (CBT) in SPSS. This training is similar to the Tutorial
but covers far more material. However, these are Windows programs that can only run on Macintosh computers when they
Finally, the ActiveStats for SPSS CD covers material that is roughly the equivilant to an introductory course in statistics. It
uses SPSS as the analysis tool for its assignments. It works in Windows and Macintosh computers.
What To Do When SPSS for Windows Expires
To ensure that SPSS is paid for, it stops working or “expires” once a year on June 1st. It will warn you in advance when you start
the program. For personal use, you can purchase the right to run it another year from the UT Computer Store. Departmental
purchases can get a reduced rate by calling OIT's Contracts, Procurement, and License Management group at 974-6461, or by using
the online software catalog at oit.utk.edu/software/. They will provide you with a new set of these instructions that will contain a
code good until next June 1st.
To renew your copy of SPSS, go to your existing SPSS folder, double-click on LICRENEW.EXE. It will prompt you to enter your
new license code listed in step 7 above. Enter the code carefully including the blanks that separate the individual numbers. It will
prompt you to enter any other codes you have. Just press the Enter key and you are done.
If you continue to have problems, call the HelpDesk at 974-9800.
