Note – open SPSS in correct way
A SPSS user got a strange error message, about version 18 was not possible to run on this computer.
The user had version 25, so this was really a strange message.
The reason was that the user opened the SPSS software by double click on a very old data file (SAV-file). To be sure that the correct version will open, do like this:
- Open SPSS Statistics version 25
- Open the data file from the program by : File – Open – Data
This is something that is not only specific for SPSS, it could be the case in other programs also.
