My experiment is not working on the lab computer. I attach my exp.

  • Hi Matanel,

    That's a very strange error. I don't know where it comes from, although it seems to have something to do with the character encoding used by the Windows file system.

    A few questions:

    • On this computer, does this happen with all experiments that contain files in the file pool?
    • Is it a Hebrew version of Windows?

    Cheers,
    Sebastiaan

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.

  • Thank you for replying to my previous message.

    This is the same print screen of my problem. I don't understand why I can't open that experiment. I don't have this problem on a different computer, and on this computer, I succeeded to open a different experiment.

    I think my windows is an English version

  • Hi @hadaskni,

    Does the same problem occur if you open another experiment that has some files in the file pool?

    Cheers!

  • No, I can open another experiment with files in the file pool.

  • I've succeeded to fix it!!! The problem was the Hebrew file names in the file pool. Once I changed the names to English it worked!!

    Thanks!!

  • Thanks for sharing that info. That sounds like a bug, and I'll see if I can reproduce it.

    And glad to hear that you worked it out!

  • It was indeed a character-encoding bug. It should be solved in the latest prerelease of 3.2.0 (currently 3.2.0a22). Would you mind giving this a test drive?

  • I've tried to run the new version with Hebrew file names. Now I see the file name in Hebrew but it crashes because it's cant use the first file for some reason (the file name: "שקופית1.png")

  • Thanks for pointing this out again. What if you try 3.2.0a26 or later? It should be completely fixed now.
