This page will prompt you for a log in, please use your complete campus username and password to access the code and software. Example: (email@example.com).
3.) Navigate to your downloads folder or the downloads list in Safari. There you will find the .dmg file of the SPSS install. Open the DMG, and then once the DMG is open run the Installer app. It may take awhile to open and verify; do not click on anything while it is doing this. The app will then prompt if you want to open it. Click open.
4.) If the installer does not open (if it did move to the next step) navigate to System Preferences, and the "Security & Privacy" preference pane. There you will need to adjust the gatekeeper settings to allow from anywhere. To do this, you must first click the lock in the lower left of the window and input your Mac password if the Mac requests it.
5.) If you have not previously used Java on your Mac, it will now prompt you to install this for SPSS's use. It may also ask you to update if it's an older Mac. You can also do this from www.java.com. If the runtime WAS already installed, skip to step six.
6.) Click "OK" and then "Yes" and "Next" to get the install set up started.
