Although you might have the necessary permissions, you can try the following
solution (a copy-paste from 'help'). On my computer@work (with restrictions)
For Windows and Linux, and by default, installing a dialog requires write
permission to the PASW Statistics installation directory. If you do not have
write permissions to the required location or would like to store installed
dialogs elsewhere, you can specify one or more alternate locations by
defining the SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH environment variable. When present, the
paths specified in SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH take precedence over the default
location. Custom dialogs will be installed to the first writable location.
Note that Mac users may also utilize the SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH environment
variable. For multiple locations, separate each with a semicolon on Windows
and a colon on Linux and Mac. The specified locations must exist on the
target machine. After setting SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH , you will need to restart
PASW Statistics for the changes to take effect.
To create the SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH environment variable on Windows, from the
Select the Advanced tab and click Environment Variables.
In the User variables section, click New, enter SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH in the
Variable name field and the desired path(s) in the Variable value field.
Windows Vista or Windows 7
Select User Accounts.
Select Change my environment variables.
Click New, enter SPSS_CDIALOGS_PATH in the Variable name field and the
desired path(s) in the Variable value field.
To view the current locations for custom dialogs, run the following command
syntax: SHOW EXTPATHS.
