On Windows 10, right-click on the start menu and choose System.

On the screen that comes up, the “System type” feild will tell you whether you have a 32-bit or 64-bit system.

Getting a License Key

First, fill out the SPSS Authorized License Request.  You must be logged in with your CNU account to fill out the form.  If you’re installing SPSS from the links in this article, choose 25 for your version number.

Once you do that, you’ll receive an e-mail with your license number.  You’ll need that later in the process.

Getting SPSS

To download SPSS, go to https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzEfgZnUUKKlWG9RbHlZZUMxNHc.  If you’re already signed in to CNU Connect, you’ll be taken directly to the download link.  If not, you’ll see the Google sign-in page. Sign in with your CNU e-mail and password.

Either way, you’ll then see the download link.  Click on the Download button to download the file.

As the SPSS installer is a large file, you’ll get a warning that Google Drive is unable to scan the file for viruses.  Since this is a trusted CNU drive, click “Download anyway” and the file will download.

Either way, you’ll be asked where to install SPSS.  Unless you have a reason to install it somewhere other than the default, click Next.

Then, click Install to begin the installation.

The install will start.  It will take a few minutes.

When it completes, you’ll be given the option to start the SPSS License Authorization Wizard. Make sure the box is checked and click Finish.
