After installing Statistics 18.0 on my Windows 7 machine, I am getting error message: Attempt to connect to a remote server failed inet: local computer when I try to launch the application. When I try to start the program I get the error message, after which I am prompted to connect to a server of some sort. Why am I getting this error?
Verify if a locally installed firewall is blocking access to the Statistics application on a Windows operating system.
Resolving the problem
If so please allow access to the executable that launches Statistics.
paswstat.exe (PASW Statistics 18.0)
stats.exe (IBM SPSS Statistics 19.0)
Note if the problem occurs on Mac OS X 10.6, check to see if Little Snitch is installed and if so, turn this off to eliminate the error message.
