I had exactly the same symptoms, asked SPSS technical support (as was
advised in the error message) but did not get an answer yet. But it seems
I have solved it by now. At least it did not occur any more since I
changed the win32s version.
By some incident I cannot recall any more I had the wrong win32s version
installed. It has to be version 1.25.xxx (I had 1.30.xxx). You can see
which version is installed on your system by editing the file
In case you have the wrong version, you can reinstall win32s after
completely deinstalling the wrong version:
+ remove the line
from the system.ini file
+ delete the files w32sys.dll and win32s16.dll and win32s.ini from the
+ delete the directory \windows\system\win32s and its contents.
For reinstalling, you need the SPSS base disk 6 and 7. You place disk 6
in the drive and run win32su.exe (under windows) and follow the instructions.
