I've tried R versions 3.20, 3.21, 3.23, 3.24-revised, and 3.3.2, but none have worked to install R Essentials.
My root folder for R is Applications/R/Contents/MacOS, and clicking 'Next' brings up an R Console instance, with the installation screen stuck at 'Please wait, IBM SPSS Modeler Essentials for R is being configured for your system...' No progress appears to be made here, and exiting the R console brings up the box saying only v3.2 is supported.
I have a piece of the answer, but not all of it. I chose to use a path that goes directly to the binary. I am on Mac Sierra 10.12.3, R 3.2.2 (and any 3.2.x should work same), SPSS Modeler 18.0.
For the folder location of R, I used this path:
MacIntosh HD -> Library -> Frameworks -> R.framework -> Versions -> 3.2 -> Resources -> bin. For the folder location of pasw.rstats, I used this path: MacIntosh HD -> Applications -> IBM -> SPSS -> Modeler -> 18 -> ext -> bin. Installation runs successful.
When I go to test R, it does not work in SPSS Modeler, and it errors out:
"Cannot get data model: Write pipe error." So.... I opened up a post looking for help to get through this.
Hi, have you installed R 3.2 as root? If not, please uninstall it and either log in as root and install R, or using the sudo command, see: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS3RA7_18.0.0/modeler_r_plugin_install_project_ddita/clementine/programmability_option/r_essentials_install_getr.htmlModeler - Essentials for R.

Let me know the results. Thanks, Adri
@Adri.P Thank you and success!!! I use both SPSS Modeler and R a lot, so I am quite happy about this. Your recommendation got me thinking. I did reinstall R 3.2.2 as a standard Mac.pkg install. To keep things simple for doing package management later on R, I left the R.3.2.2.pkg install with Mac defaults, and I changed my paths to the following when installing Essentials:
Installing R Essentials (on my Mac) I pointed to R installed here.... MacIntosh HD\Library\Frameworks\R.framework\Versions\3.2\Resources (This path made the biggest difference for my specific config & issue)
pasw.rstats installed here..... MacIntosh HD\Applications\IBM\SPSS\Modeler\18\ext\bin
All of the R functionality is working in SPSS Modeler now. :)
