Unable To Execute X-13.exe

Postby livebythecold » Thu Apr 23, 2020 12:38 am

Hello

Whenever I attempt seasonally adjusting a series I get the following Error: Unable to execute X-13.EXE.
I cannot figure out why I get this error.

Any ideas?

Regards

Make sure your Temp File Path is pointing to a valid writable directory. To see this value, go to Options menu, General Options, File Locations.

Also, specifically for X11, X12, & X13, make sure that your working directory is not more than 4 folders deep (the X?? programs we use do not support a working path that has more than 4 folder names).

For example, a working path such as:

Code: Select all

c:\Temp
or

Code: Select all

c:\Temp\Folder2\Folder3\Folder4
is ok, but:

Code: Select all

c:\Temp\Folder2\Folder3\Folder4\Folder5
is not.

Our default working folder is:

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\ev_temp
where <username> is replaced with your actual Windows username.

Thanks. My Temp File Path has 6 folder names. Can I assign a new directory for any folder, say, a desktop folder?
I am using EViews on macOS Catalina.
