Eviews Crashing w/ Structural Only Forecast

Postby jnunes » Tue Jan 09, 2018 5:59 pm

Eviews has crashed numerous times upon the following:
- Equation specified containing AR term(s)
- Attempting a Forecast using the Structural part of the equation only

I get "Eviews 9.5 has stopped working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly..."

This has happened more times than I can count, as this is a common process for me, but did not occur with prior versions of Eviews. Overall Eviews 9.5 is not as stable as Eviews 7.

Any assistance/ideas would be much appreciated. I'm running 9.5 64-bit and am a long-time Eviews user.

I believe so. My impression is that Eviews checks for updates every time it opens. In any event, I just checked for updates, and it is up to date. Thanks.

ok, we'll take a look. (As a side note - it may be some time to issue a fix to 9 since we only update 10 on a regular basis).

Thanks, Gareth. When do you think you can look into this...(e.g., at least confirming you can recreate the problem)?

I can confirm we can recreate the issue.

We'll probably issue a fix for 10 (where it still exists) within a week or two.

No ETA on 9.

Ok. Thanks. I'm amazed this hasn't come up earlier...I tend to use that feature frequently (and should have alerted Eviews a long time ago). I'll stay tuned.
