Restore ability to set concurrent licensing for all users system-wide
SPSS 28.0 changed the way concurrent licensing works. Every user must explicitly select the concurrent license in the activation wizard the first time SPSS is launched, even if the administrator has already configured concurrent licensing. This is confusing to end users and undesirable in lab and classroom environments.
The suggested workaround of modifying user-specific registry keys to avoid the dialog is unnecessarily complex and will lead to issues when multiple version of SPSS are deployed across campus. We request an install-time or post-install system-wide option to revert to the previous behavior from 27 and before. Specifically, if the administrator has configured concurrent licensing for a workstation, all users should automatically use concurrent licensing and never see the activation wizard. This should be possible without needing to modify every user's registry.
