Error description

  • You work with AMOS 22 and 23 and created a path diagram for a
    SPSS Statistics data file. On your model you have 2 groups
    defined and on grouping variable dialog you select the same
    grouping variable for both groups.
    after that you click on the "Bayesian" icon with the curve from
    the palette to start the analysis.
    
    However, the Model hangs on "perform EM iterations and AMOS is
    not responding.
    You can only close it via Task Manager.
    this issue was reported to IBM SPSS AMOS development.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in a future release of IBM SPSS
    AMOS. The issue is seen on non-English regional settings on
    English Windows operating systems. If you change the regional
    settings on Control Panel on the computer from non-English to
    e.g. English OS, start AMOS 22 and 23 and run the Bayesian model
    again it will work and the program does not hang.
