Re: Settings aren't stored

On networks where EViews is actually running on a remote server (e.g. the cloud) or is running inside a VM environment of any kind, it's possible that your user-specific INI file is getting lost, perhaps once a day or even upon each restart of EViews. In situations like this, you'll have to discuss ...

Re: Workfile contains links to external data sources....

Currently, there is no way to suppress that message without disabling all of the external links in the workfile. The Manage button can take you to a dialog that allows you to quickly disable all external connections with just a few clicks.

Re: Internal Error 504 504

It's possible your file has been corrupted somehow. Did you try opening the backup or snapshot file? The backup file should be in the same folder, but instead of ".WF1", it has a ".~F1" extension. Or if you have snapshots turned on, you can look for a hidden folder in the same di...

Re: shell robocopy

The SHELL command is similar to SPAWN, but it is hard-coded to look for a specific return value of 0 (if you provide arguments after the SHELL command). It turns out that ROBOCOPY.exe returns 0 only if no files were copied. It returns 1 if at least one file was copied and so EViews assumed this was ...

Re: DCOM on a server

Our standard licensing agreement does not allow you to run EViews as a server/service, even if you are using a concurrent license. For example, we would not allow a customer who owned a 100 concurrent license to publish a web page (or web service) to provide near full EViews functionality to the fir...

Re: Problems with com server after 9.5 upgrade

Make sure you update to the latest version of EViews 10, there have been a few COM fixes since 10 was launched.

Re: COM automation

In VBA, to let go of an object, you have to set your variables to Nothing. So in your example: Public Sub Test() Dim mgr As New EViews.Manager Dim app As EViews.Application Set app = mgr.GetApplication(ExistingOrNew) 'use app 'clean up Set app = Nothing Set mgr = Nothing End Sub And even then Excel ...

Re: COM automation

My guess is that you have some orphaned instances of EViews running in the background (hidden) that you're not aware of. This can happen if your calling application crashes or stops midway without properly telling the EViews instance it was talking to that it is no longer needed. In these cases, eve...

Re: import(resize) match-merging does not work as expected with panel data

This is a complicated issue... Yes, you are correct. Currently the resize option is ignored when you are performing a match-merge import to a panel. Resizing panel workfiles can be complicated and our current resize dialog only allows you to adjust date ranges, not cross id values. resize.png The co...

Re: EViews crashes...

Further, this bug is happening because EViews (by default) does not allow multiple un-named workfiles to be open at a time and tries to delete any previous untitled workfile whenever a new one is created -- and EViews is not cleaning up properly (during a program run) when doing this. So when your p...

Re: EViews crashes...

Thanks for the program. I was able to get EViews 10 to crash on just the first run. While we try to fix this problem, I believe you can avoid this crash by changing a global setting to allow multiple untitled workfiles. Go to Options/General Options/Environment/Window behavior, then in the "All...

Re: disable repeating code at command line

Check the command capture setting by going to the Options menu/General Options/Command capture and make sure the "Send command capture to Command Capture Window Only" is selected.

If this doesn't help, please provide some more details and a screenshot of what you are seeing.

Re: EIA database error

If you go to the EViews File menu/Open/Database, and then select EIA Online Database, you can see in the Server specification field the URL that EViews will try to use to get EIA data. In this case, the URL is: api.eia.gov I double-checked and the EdxEIA code is using just normal HTTP protocol (e.g....
