Trying launch IBM SPSS Statistics and getting error message: Attempt to connect to a remote server failed inet: local computer

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

After installing IBM SPSS Statistics 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?

Cause

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.

spssengine.exe
stats.exe
java.exe
javaw.exe

Note: if the problem occurs on Mac OS X 10.x, check to see if Little Snitch is installed and if so, turn this off to eliminate the error message.
