62-bit SPSS

John F Hall

My i3 4k RAM 500 gb HDD just can’t cope any more with 2 or more very large *.sav files open simultaneously. I’m awaiting delivery of a new Lenovo 62-bit computer with i7 cpu, 16gb RAM, 1 tb HDD with Windows 7 Pro preloaded (Windows 10 will drive me completely mad).  This means changing to the 64-bit version of SPSS. Am I likely to experience any problems with the switchover?

32-bit Microsoft ODBC drivers for Access and Excel won’t work, and I think you need the 64-bit version of Office to get the 64-bit drivers. For most typical operations, you don’t need the Excel ODBC driver, since SPSS can read those directly, but you can’t read Access database files without a compatible ODBC driver.

Last time I checked, Microsoft does not recommend the 64-bit version of Office for most customers; so most people are running 32-bit Office on 64-bit machines.

I hope that's a 64-bit computer.  Those last two bits matter!

Anyway, if you are moving from 32-bit Statistics to 64-bit Statistics, you should have no problems EXCEPT that ODBC access to MS Office won't work unless you can get the 64-bit Office drivers, which is difficult (and not recommended by MS last time I looked).  But the built-in Excel read/write capability will still work, since it doesn't use ODBC.

BTW, I find Win 10 to be a very nice improvement over Win 7.  The Win 8 disaster has been fully overcome IMO.

Thanks for replies.  Yup.  64-bit (stress caused by workaround when supplier couldn’t accept a UK Visa card registered to a non-UK address and HSBC’s newly redesigned website for internet banking is diabolical).  Didn’t know about 64-bit Office and Excel.  Not quite sure what they’ve loaded.  Will check as it may not have been despatched yet.  Could have got one with W10Pro and W7Pro but it only had a 128gb SSD.
