      Thank you for the clarification. It did not know these details.

      When you search for PSPP for Windows the first result that pops
      up is for and is version 0.9.0-g745ee3.
      - This is the one that took half a day to install here - .

      There is a warning in the first line of the site that the version
      0.9.0 is not fully tested, but a little later on the site states:
      There are no known issues with this release.
      Maybe a more cautionary phrase would help.

      When you look at the sourceforge the site
      lets you download a snapshot version:

      So the alternatives are either snapshot or snapshot ? and are not controlled
by the PSPP developers.   Those have been set up by Harry Thijssen
(who is normally active on this list) as a service to those who find
it useful.  (Harry, maybe you could consider ftr's suggestions?)

      So, where do you get a real production version ?

      BTW: The snapshot version produced frequencies, but not always.
      And when you are waiting for the result the window remains blank.
      The user doesn't whether pspp works or crashed.

The qog_std_cs_jan16.sav  dataset which you posted earlier contains only:

  -   Numerical (scale) variables.
  -   Variables which are unique for each case.
  -   Variables which have only one value for the entire dataset.

As such, I cannot see that there is any FREQUENCIES command which would
produce interesting results.

I wanted just to see how many cases got opened after opening of the file.

However, my original question was about the error message
attention: 'C:\Users\Toshiba\Documents\data\world\qog_std_cs_jan15.sav' près du
segment 0x340a3 :Record type 7, subtype 18 found here has the same type as the
record found near offset 0x3406a.  For help, please send this file to bug-gnu-
address@hidden and mention that you were using GNU PSPP 0.9.0-g3a3d58.

Did you have the get the same error message ?
