What is the difference between an authorization code and a license code?
IBM SPSS licensing consists of a number of components. You will need a twenty digit alpha-numeric authorization code. This authorization code is used in combination with a hardware specific identifier (lock-code) of the machine on which you are installing the product.
The authorization code and the lock code will be used to create a 50 to 100 digit license code. This code will be added to your installation via the licensing process into a file named lservrc. The license file is required by the software to start and/or allow connections to it.
