Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 21 installed on a Microsoft
    Windows operating system. The program works fine until suddenly
    one day you are unable to use certain buttons on dialog boxes
    any more.
    For example on Correspondence Analysis when changing options in
    the Statistics sub-dialog box, you are no longer able to run the
    analysis or paste the syntax. After this issue first occurs you
    are unable to press, OK, Paste, Continue in any dialog box. For
    all dialog boxes, the Reset, Cancel and Help buttons still work
    however.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development but there is a simple
    workaround.
    If you encounter this issue launch Statistics 21 and click on:
    'Window - Reset Dialog Sizes and Positions' , click Ok and
    restart Statistics 21, this will solve the issue.
    
    The issue has to do with the new feature within Statistics 21 to
    save resized dialog positions and size in the Windows registry
    in following key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\prefs\com\ibm\/S/P/S/S\/Stat
    istics\21.0\ui\/W/I/N/D/O/W_/I/N/F/O_/P/R/E/F/S
    
    If you resize dialog positions and height very frequently the
    value in the registry can become too long.
    

Local fix

  • This will be addressed in a future release of IBM SPSS
    Statistics. As a workaround issue launch Statistics 21 and click
    on:
    'Window - Reset Dialog Sizes and Positions' , click Ok and
    restart Statistics 21, this will solve the issue.
