Workaround to Run SPSS 17 on Snow Leopard

You have to installed Leopard version of  JRE 1.5, like I post in previous blog post before doing these steps. After installing SPSS 17 and JRE 1.5 on Snow Leopard, open edit 2 files system:

1.  /Applications/SPSSInc/Statistics17/
# vim /Applications/SPSSInc/Statistics17/
Comment this line (put semicolon in front of this line):
and add this line (to change the previous commented line):
2. /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/Exceptions.plist

# sudo vim  /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/Exceptions.plist
Find this line:
and change 17.1 to 17.0
That's all you need to do.  This workaround makes me run SPSS 17 smoothly on my MacBook Pro :)
