Latest update crashing win XP?

Postby cgreene » Fri Mar 05, 2010 9:31 am

Since installing the latest update of Eviews, it is crashing (Eviews, not the operating system) on both my home and office machine. Both machines run winxp (service pack 3).
On the home machine it is very consistent, crashes when I click to close a ls equation result window.
Not at the office right now, but will see if I can make it crash consistently when I am there later today.

Anyone else having a similiar problem? If not, then I need suggestions. My only idea is that the workfile is corrupted in some way.

Could you provide more details?

Does it happen only on a particular workfile, or on any workfile?

Which version of EViews are you using, and what is the build date (available from Help->About EViews)?

I found the problem was reproducible only with a particular workfile. As a workaround, I went back to an earlier version and re-ran programs. So my guess is that the file was corrupted in some way. I did discover I had some spyware that needed removal. I still have the problem workfile (if you are interested), but unless the problem repeats itself I don't think it is an Eviews issue.

Thanks

I have the same issue, Eviews crashes, since I had XP service pack3 installed.
