PSPP version 0.7.8-g981b76 using an HP Desktop running Windows 7. These problems were not experienced with an older version (0.7.5??). Problems first noticed by Jessie Braden on the PSPP-USERS list (address@hidden).

.sps files do not show PSPP icon and do not run after double-clicking from Windows Finder.
Error message: .62: error: 'J:____\name.sps' is not a system or portal file.

When opening files from PSPPIRE:

1) .sav and .por files are not visible when the default option "Data and Syntax Files" is selected. Syntax (.sps) files are visible and can be opened without problems. Changing the "Data and Syntax Files" option to "All Files" makes .sav and .por files visible and no problems were experienced when opening them.

2) The following error message appears when entering directories with data and syntax files. Permission is not actually denied because all files can be opened by changing to "All Files" option. error: An error occurred while opening `J:\POL242-DATA\Afghani Opinion': Permission denied.

3) Using a "Get file=" command from a syntax window does open a .sps file (when opening failed from Finder) BUT the dataset did not appear in the PSPPire Data Editor.
