    Hey, 
    I want to install SPSS version 25 for my trial period, but I can't find any download link for this version(or anything older than 28). Is there any way I can downgrade my current installation or install the 25 version?

    Hi @Ben Amsalem

    The IBM SPSS Statistics Trial software is identical to the IBM SPSS Statistics Subscription software, albeit with a much shorter license period.  The Trial software offered is always the latest release.  In this case, it is version 28.0.0.0.

    IBM SPSS Statistics 25.0 thru 28.0 are the currently supported versions of the ​IBM SPSS Statistics On-Prem product. If you would like to test IBM SPSS Statistics 25.0 for a trial period, then you would need to contact IBM SPSS Sales and make arrangements to obtain the installation media and apply a short term license.

    Caveats:

    - IBM SPSS Statistics will only be supported another year (End of Service 2022-09-30)  Here are the lifecycles for the currently supported versions:

    - If you go with Statistics 25.0, you will want to apply the latest Fixpack (25.0 Fixpack 2) here:

    I hope this helps!
