We (the version 12 beta testers) were not specifically requested to test
existing options and procedures. However, I ran several logistic
regression problems--one of which, I recall, was a multinomial problem.
It ran fine on the beta version. I did have some machine specific
problems with the beta (primarily a graphics-related problem) that seem
to have been corrected.
I don't have the release version of the regression module so I can't
tell you anything about the release. But my sense is that V12 may be
sensitive to hardware or OS setup.
I think it will be telling to see if others have the same problem.
Again, I didn't see that problem in the beta version.

Dear list members,
I am a quiet user of the list, but I am now writing to you because I
I just had spss 12.0 installed on my pc (Windows 2000), and "as
with a new release, I experienced
many problems (remember SPSS 10.0, Answer Tree 1.0).
First, when I try to do a multinomial logistic regression via the
spss shows the message
"Internal error : Cannot find control 1000 in Procvec" and crashes.
Secondly, when I try do to
binary logistic regression, I can't see the entire option boxes (the
only partially shows).
The same thing happens for linear regression. I visited the support
site to find a patch without success.
So, I decided to go back and re install spss 11. Did you experienced
If so, may be it is a good idea to wait before installing spss 12.
