SPSS Version 17 very slow?

Postby eicherv » Mon Mar 16, 2009 5:20 pm


I installed the Trial Version for SPSS Version 17 on my computer and think that it's very slow. I work with big data files and I have to copy and paste a lot of data and output tables. SPSS takes forever do that or even freezes in the process and shuts down. I worked with SPSS Version 14 before and did not have that problem at all. Does anyone know if this might be because I have the Trial Version and once I buy the Version, it will be different? My computer is not that old (Acer Aspire 5633, Memory (RAM): 2 GB), so I don't think that should be the problem.

I'd be glad for any tips or info!

I think that's the main reason for so much people not to like SPSS 16 and 17. They aren't as fast as previous versions (specially 16, 17 has some wothy improvements)...
