Resolved Question:

Hi, I just bought the SPSS 17 Grad Pack today and am trying to install it on my MAC OS X, but every time I click on the install icon, the icon shows up in my dock for a few seconds and then just disappears with nothing else happening. I don't know what to do to get this to install.

Hello and thanks for using

What OS are you running? ie. 10.4.11 or 10.5.6

If you click on the Apple icon in the top left and choose about this mac. It will tell you the version number.

Also let me know what it says next to processor

SPSS 17 is not compatible with snow leopard. The newer version SPSS 18 is.

There are work arounds but SPSS 17 does not run with the newer version of Java.

Please look at this website for detailed instructions on downgrading your Java version and installing SPSS.
