Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.0 and created some
    output Viewer files (*.spv). After that you installed FixPack 1
    for Statistics 20 (20.0.0.1) and open the viewer files you saved
    in 20.0.0.0.
    
    When you open the output file you receive a warning:
    IBM SPSS Statistics 20
    This viewer document was created in an earlier version of the
    software. If you use the current version to change it, the
    changed items may not be displayed correctly in the earlier
    version.
    
    And a checkbox with: Don't show this dialog in the future.
    
    This issue was reported to Development. As a workaround please
    ignore the warning and check the box Don't show this dialog in
    the future.
    Your viewer files will open in both versions 20.0.0.0 and
    20.0.0.1
