Hi folks,


I’ve come across a puzzle in trying to help one of my students. If I open consumption.gdt from the ETM data set, then run the attached script, things work fine on my desktop (gretl 1.8.7) and my laptop (1.8.6), both of which have Windows XP. However my student, running Vista, gets an error saying “no data set in place”. I modified the script to open the data set, add logs, etc., and it runs fine for her. But, all of the generated variables (c, u2, etc) are added to my data set but not to hers.


Has anyone else experienced something like this?
