Licensed Software

The Licensed Software Office (LSO) negotiates and administers software license agreements with many vendors in order to decrease overall software costs to the University. The software can be purchased by U of T students, faculty and staff. However, depending on our agreement with the vendor, not all software is available to everyone.

Compatibility SPSS Compatibility Issues With macOS 10.15 (Catalina)

IBM has reported compatibility and installation issues with SPSS versions 25 and 26 with the latest macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
Please see the IBM article for workarounds for the issues below:

  • When attempting to view files from Documents, Downloads, Desktop, and connected external disks, you will see a blank area where files normally display
  • Installation will fail

In the coming weeks, IBM will release a Version 26 Fix Pack and a Subscription update. When available we will update the media for new purchases and make it avialble for previous purchases upon request.

An interim fix has been released to update the license activation wizard for versions 24 and 25 as they are 32-bit applications not supported by macOS 10.15. Please contact us to obtain the interim fix if you experience the error "SPSS Statitsics License Authorization Wizard needs to be updated".
