Try running licrenew.exe, which is found in the SPSS directory. Most of my
experience is with non-dongled SPSS, but what will happen if you advance the
system clock beyond the expiration date of the license code, SPSS will stay
expired, even after the clock is set back to normal. Running licrenew.exe
with the system clock set to the correct date should correct the problem.
I'm not sure how the dongle reacts to an expired license, however. You may
want to contact your local SPSS office for a license code that extends
beyond the current expiration date of the license.
Information on the Y2K status of SPSS products can be found at
SPSS Technical Support.

Subject: Dongle-protected SPSS, big problem !!!
I have a dongle-protected version of SPSS9.01. The license expires on June
We had to run some tests to ensure the compatibility with Y2K and I ran SPSS
with the system date set somewhere in 2001.
The problem is that, now, it stops after the initial license check.
I reinstalled the entire package on another computer. The installation works
fine, but when I run it, it stops at the same point.
