SPSS 17 is not opening

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi community,

I recently installed SPSS 17 on my system, and it was installed successfully but when I tried to run it, it ended up in an error.

The screenshot of the error is as follows:

The application has failed to start

The message states:


The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

Does anyone knows how to fix it up? I'll be really thankful for your help as I have to complete my thesis using this software.

Waiting for your reply.
