No distortion graph

Hi,
I have been using REW 5,16 (Windows XP) for nearly a year and have just turned my attention to the distortion graph for earlier measurements of speaker performance made with a swept sine signal. Sometimes a graph is not available, often for the first measurement in a series (on the same day). I expect it is a simple matter, but I cannot see what I have done wrong!

Re: No distortion graph

It was a bug in 5.16, fixed in 5.17. Current release is 5.18 and current beta is 5.19 beta 4.

Re: No distortion graph

Thanks JohnM. I have installed 5.18 and achieved distortion graphs for measurements I made today. However, I wasn't able to find the graphs for the "bugged" measurements.

Earlier I had a problem that I couldn't save some measurements, which problem I bypassed by only using REW as an administrator. Was this a bug or just that JRE doesn't run well in Windows XP?

Re: No distortion graph

REW runs wherever Java runs, not had any problems on XP. It runs with the privileges of the user, was the folder you were saving to somewhere a normal user can access from their account?

Re: No distortion graph

Yes, the folder was accessible to the user (without administrator priviledges). Unfortunately I cannot recall exactly what the error message was. This happened twice, after which I made a point of logging on as administrator. XP has otherwise been very stable and I cannot recall having had this problem anywhere before. I could try going back to REW 5.18 as a normal user, but it's shame to lose all your measurements because you can't save them. The "save all measurements" function is rather cumbersome because you have to type in the whole file name each time (unless I missed something...)

Re: No distortion graph

The file chooser is a Java component, it doesn't have autocomplete. If you look in the REW log files there may be something captured there, their location is shown in the About REW dialog. Logs from the last 10 startups are kept.
