Question: I have just installed SPSS 11.0 onto my PC and I do not see it on the Start Programs Menu. I see SPSS 9.0 for Windows and expected to see SPSS 11.0 next to it. What went wrong? Answer: Although previous versions of SPSS for Windows were placed on the main menu of Start>Programs, SPSS 11.0 for Windows is added as a program group called SPSS for Windows. You may be used to seeing both SPSS 9.0 for Windows and SPSS 9.0 Production Facility (or previous versions) on the Start->Programs menu and not notice that SPSS for Windows has been added to the section of the menu which lists program groups, which are indicated by an arrow to the right of the program group name on the menu.
