I have Mac OSX 10.10 or 10.11 and I need to update Java to install SPSS Statistics 22?


In order to run SPSS with Yosemite or El Capitan, customers may need to have a specific version of Java runtime (Java 6). Updating Java won’t fix the problem because you will just have Java 8.


You can download the Java 6 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572

You must click on the download link and a DMG containing the Java 6 installer is downloaded.

Then you must open the Java DMG, then double click on the Java installer, follow the prompts and complete the installation of Java 6.

Once the Java is installed, you can follow the process of installing SPSS as normal.
