Thanks, again. I've set up both temp & tmp as WinXP environment variables, as suggested, and am concentrating on PSPP Windows just for the moment.There seems to be an ongoing issue with psppire.txt (which contains the analysis output), whereby its existence may be hindering/stopping 2nd and subsequent analyses.After launching in PSPP Windows, the *first* use of say a crosstab is fine, and creates:C:\Documents and Settings\David\Local Settings\Temp\psppire.txt(used to be C:\Cygwin\psppire.txt with temp & tmp not set as environment variables)However, the next (say crosstab) analysis seems not to materialise. Quitting and restarting allows another analysis, but the problem reappears thereafter.Regards,Dave.Sent: Saturday, August 02, 2008 9:42 PMSubject: Re: 0.6.0-10 PSPP windows - Queries (WinXP)
Hmm.. I am surprised that XP works without temp. I guess you have a lot of ram. (and some problems)
Is there a tmp environment variable? Check it with "set tmp".
It is normal that you have a tmp and temp environment variable. I would advice:
- In your case, check if C:\Documents and Settings\David\Local Settings\Temp is available. If not create it.
- go to "This computer" right mouse click and then "preferences". Choose "advanced". Choose "environment variables".
(the names might differ on your computer because I use windows in my own language. So my translation ccould be wrong.)
- Create a new one with the name "temp" and the value "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp"
- if there is a tmp environment variable, this should have the same value. Otherwise I would say create it also. Few programs use it, but is is better to have the variable and let it point to the same directory.
I wonder if this helps with the issues.

I mean a Windows temp directory. The one witch is reported when you type the command "set temp".

Many thanks for the feedback and the .bat file."Is there a temp directory on your installation?" Three:C:\Cygwin\var\tmp
C:\Cygwin\tmpRegards,Dave.----- Original Message -----To: address@hiddenSent: Saturday, August 02, 2008 7:31 PMSubject: Re: 0.6.0-10 PSPP windows - Queries (WinXP)Hi>> 2) Copy from Output1 Window ? - The select all/copy doesn't

Right this is reported before.
>Presumably the Command line version is pspp.exe ? - Although C:\Cygwin\usr\local\bin\pspp.exe won't run, an error message says it can't find cygwin1.dll (it's here: C:\Cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll)
It is not that easy. You have to use the cygwin environemnt. Start a dosbox, execute the .bat file I attached to this message as *.ba and after that you can start PSPP in commandline mode.
>I've noticed that, after a frequency computation, a file called C:\Cygwin\psppire.txt is created - which contains the output (but the file disappears immediately after 'quitting !).
I guess this is the only way you can copy the output before you quit. :-( But this is strange. This file should be in your windows temp directory. Is there a temp directory on your installation?
