Using the license authorization wizard when not prompted to enter code

You might be prompted for administrator credentials. If the License Authorization Wizard does not prompt you to enter an authorization code, you can launch it by choosing License Authorization Wizard in the Windows Start menu program group for IBM SPSS/AMOS. You must run as administrator. Right-click the License Authorization Wizard shortcut and choose Run As Administrator.
