SPSS 25 lisences

SPSS licenses for home computers are valid until 1.3.2020. New codes that are valid until 31.7.2020, can already be ordered from

The UEF computers use a license server that has already been updated and don’t need actions from the users.

License term will be changed to be 1.8.-31.7. The change causes a shorter than normal validity period for the new licenses.

The version will be changed to SPSS 26 on 1.8.2020. More information about the change will be available when the change is near. The version change means that the codes work for only SPSS version 26 after 1.8.2020, the version 25 cannot be used.

We will inform in Yammer when the new version is available (in July).
