Yoga 2 Pro Licensing window too small

I need to install IBM SPSS and to use the software, you have to register it using the licensing tool. However, when I start the licensing program, the window is too small for me to enter any info, and where I would need to put a code is blocked out. I've included a picture so you can see what I'm talking about. I have not had a problem with this process on any other laptop. I have a Yoga 2 Pro. Please help!!!!

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Licensing window too small

You may need to change your display resolution AND/OR adjust the text size to make it smaller.

You can do this by right clicking on your desktop and selecting Screen Resolution.

 

For font, click on "Make text and other items larger or smaller".

You will need a system restart after changing the font settings.

 

i dont know who designed that licensing form but looks to me that someone was lazy.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Licensing window too small

Thank you so much-- this worked! I had been trying to resize the box and the text, but I was trying to make it bigger. I never thought about making the text smaller. THANK YOU!!! I thought it was hopeless and I really  needed this program!

You are welcome.

 

You might want to keep your resolution optimal with these UHD displays. I am keeping mine at 1920*1080 even though it supports the 3200*1900 or whatever..

 

Many applications are incompatible with these new displays.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro Licensing window too small

I just had the same problem come up on my Lenovo Yoga Pro 3.  Luckily, I took some of these suggestions and after a lot of trial and error, I finally figured it out.  This may not be the only way, but it worked for this specific machine and for authenticating SPSS 22.

 

Lower resolution to 1280 x 720.

Reduce font size (all options in drop down) to 6.

 

Nothing else was needed such as changing the page orientation.  These 2 major adjustments gave me just enough space to finally be able to enter the authentification code.
