IBM Support

IBM SPSS Statistics 20 no longer has a "Check for Update" option on the Help menu.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Version 19 and older had a "Check for Updates" option on the help menu. This now just redirects to the SPSS page on and version 20 has the option removed completely.

Resolving the problem

An enhancement request for future versions of Statistics to support a "Check for Updates" feature similar to that in previous versions has been submitted.
