SPSS Statistics does not open beyond login

  • 1.  SPSS Statistics does not open beyond login

    Posted Fri February 17, 2023 09:34 AM

    Hello!

    I have been trying to open SPSS Statistics (Trial version) since Tuesday with no luck. Here is how each attempt goes:

    • I open the application and am met with 2 options - 1, Login with IBM ID / 2, Launch License Wizard
    • I click option 1
    • Log in - I know the credentials are right since I copy the same email address use for the website, and when I get my password wrong it lets me know
    • Loading screen for a few seconds ('Verifying...' / 'Please wait...' etc.)
    • The application closes with no error message nor indication as to what went wrong

    I have un/reinstalled the application many times now, redownloaded the .exe file from the website, and made sure to run the installer as an administrator (following the advice of online resources) but still have no luck...

    My 30-day trial started on Tuesday so there is no reason that the problem will be related to that, as far as I'm aware

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Mollie

    Hi @Mollie Sawford,
    The first place I'd look for something like this is to make sure you are "allowing" the "jcef_helper.exe" process to communicate through your firewall.  This is the process that handles the communication between IBM SPSS Statistics Subscription and the IBM SPSS Licensing server.

    For more details and other potential pitfalls, please see this technote:

    Make sure you have installed the latest release -- IBM SPSS Statistics 29.0.2.0 (20). 

    That white screen in the IBMid login is a symptom of changes made to the license server security back in December 2023.  The latest release of the software remedies this situation.
