SPSS 16.0 is REALLY buggy, even after installing the 16.0.1 patch and the

the authorization was denied. Not terribly useful.

a Java JRE error message. All the machines I tried this on
were patched XP systems.

didn't clue in on, for SPSS? Or is SPSS torturing me just
because it can... ?
tnx, STeve Andre'
