Can I active my own license of IBM SPSS Statistics when I install the trial of version?

Technote (FAQ)


I am a student and have lost the DVDs of SPSS Statistics. I have asked a classmate to ship it to me, but it will take about one week for delivery and I need the install media urgently. Could I install the trial version of SPSS Statistics from the IBM website and license it with my own code?


Technically, Yes. The SPSS Statistics installation files from your media (or Passport Advantage download) and the trial version is the same.

If you lost the install media of the latest version of Statistics (at the time of publishing this document, it is version 21), there is the SPSS Statistics trial of the latest version on the IBM website, so it could be downloaded. You could then activate you own license to use long term.

The trial version is available in the link below
