Subject: Re: SPSS 11.5 Tutorial and Case Studies not working for me
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
I followed the directions to add the Tutorial to the Help menu.
After clicking OK in the Menu Editor I get an error "Menu is
invalid or missing for
in the registration database.
After clicking OK in that box I get another box that says:
Error adding menu item for application
If I close SPSS and open it again I get those boxes repeated TWICE
and have to keep clicking OK before the Data Editor opens.
When I try to go back into the Menu Editor I get the first error
message TWICE before it lets me into Menu Editor. I wanted to DELETE what
I had done, but I can't delete it because it was never added in the first
So now I'm left with having to click OK on a bunch of error messages
all the time, and the Tutorial never got into the Help menu.
I am going to have to reinstall SPSS to get rid of all those error
I put a shortcut to introtut2.htm on my desktop, that seems to work
