Demeter not working on Windows 8.1 64bit

Hi,



I have recently upgraded my computer to Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and after this
upgrade I can't run Athena and Artemis. The problem symptoms are:



1- If I use Demeter version 0.9.13, Athena opens but when I try to open
previously saved file, Athena simply crashes without showing any error.
Artemis also shows similar behavior.

2- By using latest build Demeter 0.9.19, Athena behavior is slightly
different it opens the files and show the plot. But pressing the E,k,R
buttons does not change the plot. Artemis still crashes by opening any
project file without any error.



I have tried following things, installed in compatibility mode of Windows7.
Athena worked fine only once after installing in compatibility mode.

Installed in different drives but situations remains the same. Tried to "run
as Admin" but no improvement.

Installed Demeter on three different computers running Windows 8.1 x64 but
similar behavior is received.



Kindly suggest me some work around because I have to use Demeter on almost
daily basis. I have attached log file obtained from Demeter 0.9.13 running
under Window 8.1 x64.



Thanks,

Shoaib,

Do you have any experience with virtual machines? You could run it on a stable earlier version of Windows that you previous used before upgrading. Virtualbox and Linux would completely free and you could probably be up and running in less than an hour.

Just a thought,

Chris

Thanks Christopher for your kind reply,



Actually, virtualbox or alternative OS would be my last resort in case I
could not solve this issue. I would prefer to somehow solve this issue under
Windows8 x64 to keep my system simple and take maximum advantage of updated
hardware.



Thanks,

I think you might be in mostly uncharted waters with 64-bit Windows 8.
I have access to many Windows machines, but I don't know of any
64-bit Windows 8.1 machines in our group.

If you're up for it, it might be worth installing demeter from source
from the github repository, following
http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/pods/installation.pod.html
and asking for help if you get stuck.

I'm sure it would be a great help to others if you did this....

Hi Matt, Shoaib (and Bruce lurking in the luminiferous ether),

I have 8.1 x64 on my laptop and just upgraded to 0.9.19 - clean install.
I can offer some additional details on this problem.

I read in a file in DAthena, extracted the chi(k) and saved the project.
All buttons worked. When the file was read in, 4 mini-graphs displayed,
and I could select k, E, R as desired for full graph.

The second time I run it, reading in the exact same file, only the
energy mini-graph
displays and the E,k and R buttons no longer produce any graphs.

From the clean install, I saved the DAthena.prj. I started DArtemis,
read in the DAthena.prj
file, haven't tried fitting but saved the DArtemis fpj file.
If I try re-opening the fpj file I just saved in DArtemis, DArtemis crashes,
but re-opening the DAthena prj file after starting DArtemis is not a
problem.

In DAthena, if I go to the appdata/roaming/demeter directory and delete
the demeter.ini file,
DAthena will display all 4 mini-graphs when I open the prj file and the
k,R,E buttons work.

I uninstalled and went back to 0.9.18.2. DAthena seems to work - all 4
mini-graphs, and E,k,R work.
DArtemis still opens, reads DAthena.prj but crashes when trying to read
fpj file created under 0.9.18.2.

Going back to the last 0.8.0nn versions, no crashes from Artemis or Athena.

Hope this helps.

-R.

Robert,

If you are inclined to help me with some troubleshooting, I have a request.

If you can recreate the situation where only the energy part of the
quad plot is displayed and the plot buttons stop working, could you
tell me a couple things:

1. What are the values for the plotting ranges in E, k, R, and q?
The reason I ask is that I stumbled upon a situation where Emin,
Emax, kmin, etc all got set to zero (as did a bunch of other
parameters). I could not figure out how to reproduce that
problem, but it would be helpful to know if it happened to
someone else.

2. In the Monitor menu, click on "Show command buffer". In the
"Plot buffer" at the bottom of the window scroll up just a little
bit to where you'll see lines that say things like

plot '/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_vdnzxmxl' using 1:2 with
lines ls 1,\
'/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_wfaastqg' using 1:2 with
lines ls 2

What I want to know is if the 8 random characters after
"stash/gp_" are the same or different (as in my example here).

In short, I want to know if you have seen some problems I have
observed by not been able to reproduce.


0.9.19 does not appear to be one of my better packaging efforts, alas.

Installing 0.9.19 overtop of 0.9.18.2 and Athena works fine.

Installing 0.9.19 clean (deleting demeter directory under appdata/roaming)
2nd attempt to open file in DAthena results in only 1 mini-graph.

Ranges are 0 for Emin/max, kmin/max, Rmin/max - putting a valid range
restores
full graph e.g. Rmin = 0 , Rmax = 6 gives full-size R-space
graph...ditto for fixing other
ranges. Fixed 3 out of 4 and read in a new file...obtained 3
mini-graphs...reset q range
as well and that one appears too.

Exited. Restarted. Read in file -
Show Command Buffer/Plot Buffer
## energy quadrant
set title "{/*1.6 Energy}"
set xlabel "{/*1.4 Energy&{aa}(eV)}"

So, seems to be setting the xranges to zero for a clean install these
plots, and gnuplot
doesn't plot if no xrange. If I reset, then I can move around and use
DAthena 9.19
without issue...DArtemis is still an unhappy DHuntress with fpj files...

Out of curiosity, I installed 09.19 on a fresh Win8.1 64bit under VMWare.
No problems during installation. I opened the cyanobacteria.prj data from
Bruce's sample data repo in Athena. After clicking around a few times
(specifically, clicking the green arrow and the magnifying glass+red curve
next to it in the toolbar of the plot window), I caused a "gnu plot.exe has
stopped working" error. Going into the monitor for the plotting log, I see
a similar x-range problem as discovered by Robert Gordon:

So, I'm not offering anything new in this message, but perhaps confirming
someone else's experience can help. To be clear, this VM has never seen
any kind of Demeter, perl, gnu plot, ... before this experiment. It's a
clean Windows (I only added java and feff9 on it at an earlier time) and
current with all windows updates.

Installing 0.9.19 overtop of 0.9.18.2 and Athena works fine.
Installing 0.9.19 clean (deleting demeter directory under appdata/roaming)
2nd attempt to open file in DAthena results in only 1 mini-graph.
Ranges are 0 for Emin/max, kmin/max, Rmin/max - putting a valid range
restores
full graph e.g. Rmin = 0 , Rmax = 6 gives full-size R-space graph...ditto
for fixing other

Hi Matt, Shoaib (and Bruce lurking in the luminiferous ether),
I have 8.1 x64 on my laptop and just upgraded to 0.9.19 - clean install.
I can offer some additional details on this problem.
I read in a file in DAthena, extracted the chi(k) and saved the project.
All buttons worked. When the file was read in, 4 mini-graphs displayed,
and I could select k, E, R as desired for full graph.
The second time I run it, reading in the exact same file, only the
energy mini-graph
displays and the E,k and R buttons no longer produce any graphs.
From the clean install, I saved the DAthena.prj. I started DArtemis,
read in the DAthena.prj
file, haven't tried fitting but saved the DArtemis fpj file.
If I try re-opening the fpj file I just saved in DArtemis, DArtemis crashes,
but re-opening the DAthena prj file after starting DArtemis is not a
problem.
In DAthena, if I go to the appdata/roaming/demeter directory and delete
the demeter.ini file,
DAthena will display all 4 mini-graphs when I open the prj file and the
k,R,E buttons work.
Robert,
If you are inclined to help me with some troubleshooting, I have a request.
If you can recreate the situation where only the energy part of the
quad plot is displayed and the plot buttons stop working, could you
1. What are the values for the plotting ranges in E, k, R, and q?
The reason I ask is that I stumbled upon a situation where Emin,
Emax, kmin, etc all got set to zero (as did a bunch of other
parameters). I could not figure out how to reproduce that
problem, but it would be helpful to know if it happened to
someone else.
2. In the Monitor menu, click on "Show command buffer". In the
"Plot buffer" at the bottom of the window scroll up just a little
bit to where you'll see lines that say things like
plot '/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_vdnzxmxl' using 1:2 with lines
ls 1,\
'/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_wfaastqg' using 1:2 with lines
ls 2
What I want to know is if the 8 random characters after
"stash/gp_" are the same or different (as in my example here).
In short, I want to know if you have seen some problems I have
observed by not been able to reproduce.
0.9.19 does not appear to be one of my better packaging efforts, alas.

I uninstalled and went back to 0.9.18.2. DAthena seems to work - all 4

mini-graphs, and E,k,R work.
DArtemis still opens, reads DAthena.prj but crashes when trying to read
fpj file created under 0.9.18.2.
Going back to the last 0.8.0nn versions, no crashes from Artemis or Athena.
Hope this helps.

Hi,
I have recently upgraded my computer to Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and after this
1- If I use Demeter version 0.9.13, Athena opens but when I try to open
previously saved file, Athena simply crashes without showing any error.
Artemis also shows similar behavior.
2- By using latest build Demeter 0.9.19, Athena behavior is slightly
different it opens the files and show the plot. But pressing the E,k,R
buttons does not change the plot. Artemis still crashes by opening any
project file without any error.
I have tried following things, installed in compatibility mode of Windows7.
Athena worked fine only once after installing in compatibility mode.
Installed in different drives but situations remains the same. Tried to ?run
as Admin? but no improvement.
Installed Demeter on three different computers running Windows 8.1 x64 but
similar behavior is received.
Kindly suggest me some work around because I have to use Demeter on almost
daily basis. I have attached log file obtained from Demeter 0.9.13 running
under Window 8.1 x64.
Thanks,

I think you might be in mostly uncharted waters with 64-bit Windows 8.
I have access to many Windows machines, but I don't know of any
64-bit Windows 8.1 machines in our group.
If you're up for it, it might be worth installing demeter from source
from the github repository, following
http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/pods/installation.pod.html
and asking for help if you get stuck.
I'm sure it would be a great help to others if you did this....

-- just to be clear, the pasted section of the log is not the bottom part.
It is followed by many more lines containing gnu plot settings (but no
"plot" commands).

Out of curiosity, I installed 09.19 on a fresh Win8.1 64bit under VMWare.
No problems during installation. I opened the cyanobacteria.prj data from
Bruce's sample data repo in Athena. After clicking around a few times
(specifically, clicking the green arrow and the magnifying glass+red curve
next to it in the toolbar of the plot window), I caused a "gnu plot.exe has
stopped working" error. Going into the monitor for the plotting log, I see

Apologies, I should've put all this in 1 message. I just wanted to make
really sure that things are indeed crashing where we think they are:

I reopened Athena, loaded the cyanobacteria.prj again, grabbed the plot log
(no warnings/errors/crashes have appeared in Athena at this point, although
the multi plot window is showing only the first subplot out of 4), put it
in a .plt file on the desktop, opened a gnu plot terminal independently
(from strawberry/c/gnuplot/bin or something like that), loaded the .plt
file, and indeed it chokes on the ranges:

gnuplot> load 'C:\Users\jorissen\Desktop\gnuplot.plt'
"C:\Users\jorissen\Desktop\gnuplot.plt", line 100: Can't plot with
an empty x range!

-- just to be clear, the pasted section of the log is not the bottom part.
It is followed by many more lines containing gnu plot settings (but no
"plot" commands).

Out of curiosity, I installed 09.19 on a fresh Win8.1 64bit under VMWare.
No problems during installation. I opened the cyanobacteria.prj data from
Bruce's sample data repo in Athena. After clicking around a few times
(specifically, clicking the green arrow and the magnifying glass+red curve
next to it in the toolbar of the plot window), I caused a "gnu plot.exe has
stopped working" error. Going into the monitor for the plotting log, I see

So, I'm not offering anything new in this message, but perhaps confirming
someone else's experience can help. To be clear, this VM has never seen
any kind of Demeter, perl, gnu plot, ... before this experiment. It's a
clean Windows (I only added java and feff9 on it at an earlier time) and
current with all windows updates.

Installing 0.9.19 overtop of 0.9.18.2 and Athena works fine.
Installing 0.9.19 clean (deleting demeter directory under
appdata/roaming)
2nd attempt to open file in DAthena results in only 1 mini-graph.
Ranges are 0 for Emin/max, kmin/max, Rmin/max - putting a valid range
restores
full graph e.g. Rmin = 0 , Rmax = 6 gives full-size R-space
graph...ditto for fixing other
ranges. Fixed 3 out of 4 and read in a new file...obtained 3
mini-graphs...reset q range
as well and that one appears too.
Exited. Restarted. Read in file -

So, seems to be setting the xranges to zero for a clean install these
plots, and gnuplot
doesn't plot if no xrange. If I reset, then I can move around and use
DAthena 9.19
without issue...DArtemis is still an unhappy DHuntress with fpj files...

Hi Matt, Shoaib (and Bruce lurking in the luminiferous ether),
I have 8.1 x64 on my laptop and just upgraded to 0.9.19 - clean install.
I can offer some additional details on this problem.
I read in a file in DAthena, extracted the chi(k) and saved the project.
All buttons worked. When the file was read in, 4 mini-graphs displayed,
and I could select k, E, R as desired for full graph.
The second time I run it, reading in the exact same file, only the
energy mini-graph
displays and the E,k and R buttons no longer produce any graphs.
From the clean install, I saved the DAthena.prj. I started DArtemis,
read in the DAthena.prj
file, haven't tried fitting but saved the DArtemis fpj file.
If I try re-opening the fpj file I just saved in DArtemis, DArtemis crashes,
but re-opening the DAthena prj file after starting DArtemis is not a
problem.
In DAthena, if I go to the appdata/roaming/demeter directory and delete
the demeter.ini file,
DAthena will display all 4 mini-graphs when I open the prj file and the
k,R,E buttons work.
Robert,
If you are inclined to help me with some troubleshooting, I have a request.
If you can recreate the situation where only the energy part of the
quad plot is displayed and the plot buttons stop working, could you
1. What are the values for the plotting ranges in E, k, R, and q?
The reason I ask is that I stumbled upon a situation where Emin,
Emax, kmin, etc all got set to zero (as did a bunch of other
parameters). I could not figure out how to reproduce that
problem, but it would be helpful to know if it happened to
someone else.
2. In the Monitor menu, click on "Show command buffer". In the
"Plot buffer" at the bottom of the window scroll up just a little
bit to where you'll see lines that say things like
plot '/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_vdnzxmxl' using 1:2 with
lines ls 1,\
'/home/bruce/.horae/stash/gp_wfaastqg' using 1:2 with
lines ls 2
What I want to know is if the 8 random characters after
"stash/gp_" are the same or different (as in my example here).
In short, I want to know if you have seen some problems I have
observed by not been able to reproduce.
0.9.19 does not appear to be one of my better packaging efforts, alas.
B
I uninstalled and went back to 0.9.18.2. DAthena seems to work - all 4

mini-graphs, and E,k,R work.
DArtemis still opens, reads DAthena.prj but crashes when trying to read
fpj file created under 0.9.18.2.
Going back to the last 0.8.0nn versions, no crashes from Artemis or Athena.
Hope this helps.

Hi,
I have recently upgraded my computer to Windows 8.1 Pro x64 and after this
1- If I use Demeter version 0.9.13, Athena opens but when I try to open
previously saved file, Athena simply crashes without showing any error.
Artemis also shows similar behavior.
2- By using latest build Demeter 0.9.19, Athena behavior is slightly
different it opens the files and show the plot. But pressing the E,k,R
buttons does not change the plot. Artemis still crashes by opening any
project file without any error.
I have tried following things, installed in compatibility mode of Windows7.
Athena worked fine only once after installing in compatibility mode.
Installed in different drives but situations remains the same. Tried to ?run
as Admin? but no improvement.
Installed Demeter on three different computers running Windows 8.1 x64 but
similar behavior is received.
Kindly suggest me some work around because I have to use Demeter on almost
daily basis. I have attached log file obtained from Demeter 0.9.13 running
under Window 8.1 x64.
Thanks,

I think you might be in mostly uncharted waters with 64-bit Windows
8.
I have access to many Windows machines, but I don't know of any
64-bit Windows 8.1 machines in our group.
If you're up for it, it might be worth installing demeter from source
from the github repository, following
http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/pods/installation.pod.html
and asking for help if you get stuck.
I'm sure it would be a great help to others if you did this....

Hi Shoaib,

I am sorry this is so frustrating for you. I share your pain. I only
have access to a limited number of platforms. I try hard to make a
quality release that will work for many people, but the simple truth
is that my testing resources are limited.

You are actually reporting two problems.


The log files you attached are reporting a problem that was corrected
in 0.9.18. The updater to bring 0.9.13 up to 0.9.18 is available at
the bottom of the page at http://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/

You simply cannot step back to 0.9.13 if you have used 0.9.18 and
expect to be able to read athena project files coming from the later
version. That was a painful change to the code, but a necessary one.


As for the problems with the new release, you are the second person to
report problems. Georges Siddiqi has very kindly been helping me
track down the problems, but so far to no avail. I am suspicious that
I may have neglected to include some important file in the new
installer package. Without the log file that gets written by the
crashing athena or artemis, there is nothing I can do to troubleshoot.

I am seeing none of these problems on any of my own computers,
although I do not have a Win8 machine at my disposal.

I should stress that it is not necessary to apply the updates in
sequence. You can install the 0.9.18 update on top of 0.9.13.
