Graphs Trouble

If Graphs are Not Appearing NCSS 2007, PASS 2008, or GESS 2006 Output

The following does not apply to PASS 11 and NCSS 8 or later.

If you are experiencing problems viewing graphs in NCSS 2007, PASS 2008, or GESS 2006 or earlier (i.e. graphs do not appear in the output when they should), the problem is likely due to one or more corrupt installation files.

To fix the problem, do the following:

  1. Find the following files in your C:\Windows\System32 directory
  2. Move each file listed above from the Windows\System32 directory to another directory of your choice or rename the files. Note, you must either move or delete the files since NCSS will not replace them unless they is not found in the Windows\System32 directory. You can accomplish this using your Windows Explorer program.
  3. Re-run the NCSS 2007 or PASS 2008 setup file and choose “repair” when prompted.

This should fix the problem.

NCSS is an excellent tool for clinical and epidemiological research that is both user friendly and economical with excellent support. It removes the "fear of statistics" from clinical research and makes research accessible to all curious clinicians.

"I purchased NCSS last week and have been extremely impressed with the product so far. The documentation is superb... Especially strong is the importing of files from Excel and other statistics programs..."
