Software availability changes for Fall 2012-Spring 2013
- HLM and Lisrel are no longer available on all open access lab machines and faculty/staff desktops due to licensing change by the vendor. Check the Supported Applications page for the specific location of each application. We are auditing the use of the applications this academic year to better understand where and by whom the software is used so as to inform our licensing arrangement for the Fall 2013-Spring 2014 academic year.

- NVivo 9.2 is the version available to LUC faculty and students via the 710 Corboy lab and faculty/staff desktops. Faculty involved in mulit-site research can request NVivo 10 to be loaded locally on their LUC desktop and/or LUC laptop if this is needed to work on projects from sites which have upgraded to NVivo 10. Please contact Lauree Garvin, firstname.lastname@example.org, 773-508-7653, if you need an upgrade to NVivo 10.

IBM SPSS Statistics 20: running on 64-bit Windows does not support Freedom Scientific's JAWS screen-reading software.
Solution: You will need a machine with 32–bit Windows to use JAWS with SPSS Statistics.
IBM SPSS Statistics 20: JAWS (screen reader) may be very slow with large datasets.
Solution: None. Use smaller datasets when possible. SPSS has reported the problem to Freedom Scientific, the developer of JAWS.
