I confirm that this blows up EViews7 (latest update of today) running under Windows7

Yep. It is actually the last line, I believe, that is causing the crash. We'll investigate and hopefully have a fix soon.

Actually, the command should be this:

Code: Select all

xopen(type="m", case="lower")

The case="lowercase" that you had in your code line triggered the crash in EViews when it tried to report the invalid case option string.

This will be fixed in the next update. However, for now, you might want to try the valid case option.


p.s. I added case="lowercase" and case="uppercase" as valid options in this fix as well so your original codeline should work after the next release...
