It looks like you are running PSPP directly. Maybe the manual
tells you to do so, but you actually want to run PSPPIRE, the GUI
When I install the latest 64-bit Windows PSPP from http://pspp.awardspace.com/
I can start PSPP(IRE) the same way I start all Windows 7 programs:
Start > All programs > PSPP > PSPP
PSPPIRE is also the default handler for .sav files, so if you
navigate to the examples folder ("C:\Program
Files\PSPP\share\pspp\examples" or Start > All Programs >
PSPP > Examples) and double-click on phisiology.sav, it should
bring up the PSPPIRE data window. On that window, select File

GROUPS.") into that window. Then select Run > All.
I work with PSPP 0.8.4-gf3a-50d and Windows 7 Profesessional.
