This is an old problem.   The problem is, You have non-ascii characters in your 
home path.    This is an 
annoying ongoing problem with the Windows port.

You can work around it, by either:

1. Saving to a path which has only ascii characters.  Try C:\Temp\test.sav  OR
2. Running pspp on a different operating system, such as GNU or GNU/Linux.
   Note, that we don't recommend running on Windows.  Whilst in general it
   works well, occasionally issues arise.  This is one of them.

PSPP for Windows in another computer, Windows 10 64 bits, and it<br />&gt; 
works properly.<br />&gt;<br />&gt; What do I do?<br />&gt;<br /><br /><br />I 
would suggest uninstalling PSPPbr />If the PSPP directory still exists, delete

/>&gt;<br />&gt; Hello. At some time I had a similar problem in Windows 8. Did 
you try<br />&gt; installing PSPP as an administrator?<br /><br /><br />That is 
not necessary. The installer detects if you are administrator and<br />install 
PSPP system wide if you are. If you install it as normal user it<br />will 
install the program only for the user which is used for installing.<br />This 
way PSPP can for instance be installed on la computers where you have<br />no 
administrator rights.<br /><br /><br />&gt; You can also check where PSPP is 
installed.<br />&gt; If you still have this problem, write a bug report. first
