Greetings,


I recently downloaded the latest stable PSPP MacOS Bundle (pspp-1.0.1-1.dmg) and installed it on my MacBook (OS High Sierra). I have been experiencing a couple of problems and wonder if anyone can offer suggestions.


#1. I cannot open a .sav file by double-clicking or right-clicking --> open (An error message attached). The only way I can open a file is through FILE --> OPEN.


#2. PSPP sometimes crashes in the process of exporting an output. When it crashes, the data file disappears even though it was previously saved.


Based on the error message to #1, I wonder if the app is not properly installed. I reinstalled it, but the problem persists.


Any thoughts? Thank you in advance for your advice.

Hi Ryoko,

thank you for your report!

#1: This is an expected behavior. The way pspp is currently build does not allow
to open the files by doubleclicking.

#2: This is not expected. Could you maybe describe the problem in more detail and
compare the behavior to this bug description:

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?53104

If you think, that this description describes your problem, then you could
extend the bug report to show how this can be reproduced.

Regards

Friedrich
