Unable to open SPSS in MAC due to error Serialization Scheme was not recognized

Technote (troubleshooting)


I am getting error 'serialization Scheme was not recognized inet: Local Computer: 0' on a MAC when trying to open SPSS 18.0.3 after I successfully applied Technote 1488075 .

Resolving the problem

This problem can appear when the original Technote 1488075 instructions were not followed correctly.

To resolve this new issue just drag "libspssjvm.dylib" file manually and drop in Lib directory.

* To perform this task open '/Applications/SPSSInc/PAWStatistics18/'
* Now do a 'Control + Mouse Click' on 'PASWStatistics18.0.app' to open a small menu. In this menu select 'Show Package Contents'.
* Open Contents folder and Lib folder, once copy paste done restart SPSS Statistics.
