Updating SPSS 13 license

I am reading the SPSS entries here but not really finding the answer I need for my question: How do you update the license in SPSS if you use an MST/MSI combo? You have to enter the serial number in Install Taylor but I cannot find a way to run the license wizard through an MST. Any ideas?

Muchas Gracias :)

We did this manually. We are replacing the old computers for new computers at night so we have a lot of time to activate SPSS, and the user is not getting bogged with this issue.

I have over 1000 computers in all of the student labs, so doing this manually will unfortunately not work...

I think a site licence would solve the problem?!

yes francoisracine, that is a good solution. .
When I deployed spss, i first called spss to change our license to a network license but when i heard what that costs i quickly hang up the phone....
It was something about 50.000 euros a year plus a maintanence contract per license.
We have 13 licenses so manually is for us a good solution (For the first time management and I where one the same line.....hahhahahaha)

Yeah I run a network install for my labs. One central point to update lic details.
I assume from the msi mst question your managing your environment through package deployment ?
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
