|Subject: ||SPSS for Windows in production mode|
The standard way to run SPSS for Windows in production mode is to
double-click a file with the .inc extension in the file manager.
However, the listing is then *appended* to an existing one rather than
overwriting it. I can change this for *one* job using regedit and
including a /r switch in the command for the "SPSS production" group.
However, after I run SPSS this returns to its original settings. The
same thing happens when I associate .sps files with SPSS production
model in the file manager. Is there any way to prevent this from
happening? I'm running SPSS 6.1 from a network server, which I assume is
responsible for resetting my SPSS configuration.
A workaround is to use PFE, a freeware editor available from the SIMTEL
archives. Click on the launch button and enter
F:\SPSS61\spsswin.exe /b /r /i %p
as the command. This runs SPSS in batch mode (/b), overwriting any
existing listing (/r) and using the input file (/i) "%p", which is the
file being edited with a full path name. Better than using the file
manager IMHO, but I'd still like to know why I can't configure SPSS the
way I want to.
