Subject:      SPSS 6.1 Mac PPC problems

I'm running SPSS 6.1 Windows in a PC Lab and SPSS 6.1 Mac PPC in a Macintosh Lab. At least, I would love to be running it in both labs. Unfortunately, the PPC version never works.

After consultation with a statistics consultant, it seems I need to remove 4 items from the SPSS Preferences Folder and then empty the trash before running SPSS in order for it to work. These items are automatically generated on launching. Besides that, there seem to be some Extension and/or Control Panel incompatibilities. Can anyone help me to make this work easier?

The items I need to delete before launching each time are:

SPSSMac.ini spssfdm.log SPSSBeng IPC Port Archive SPSSFrong IPC Port Archive

Any ideas? Anyone run up against the same or similar problems?
