Error description

  • Installation of IBM SPSS Statistics 21 Fix Pack 1 produces an
    incorrect file name for its log. In the %temp% folder on a
    Windows machine, you will find:
    SPSSStatistics20001PatchLog.txt
    
    Inside this log, you'll see that it is the IBM SPSS Statistics
    21 FP1 installer that generated it:
    ******* Product:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\{472E3E23-7D4B-4288-B9B6-
    C37AEA485529}\SPSS_Statistics_21001_win64_Patch.msi
    
    This is incorrect and a generated file name should be similar
    to:
    SPSSStatistics21001PatchLog.txt
