I'm trying to run the SPSS trial but get "An internet connection is required to start a trial'".
We don't connect any of our computers directly to the internet therefore I need to activate the trial version through a proxy. Is this possible? if not is there an offline activation for the trial version?
Kind regards, Sean
We can create a 14 day trial code for the certain machine as offline activation.
You have installed SPSS Statistics release 24 (trial), correct?
If this is a Windows computer please go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\SPSS\Statistics\24 (32 bit default path)
C:\Program Files\IBM\SPSS\Statistics\24 (64 bit default path)
locate a file called echoid.exe, right click on this file and select 'run as administrator'
A locking code is displayed, what is the locking code?
Then we can create a 14 day licensing code for this locking code

Regarding your other question about purchase of the software for a shorter period: You may be interested in that we will have a new offering next week: SPSS Subscription that will allow users more flexibility as they can purchase for one month only, for example Please see the articles from the SPSS Product offering Manager Doug Stauber about the new offering:
