L   LISREL 8.72 for windows (April 2005)
N   New in LISREL 8.72 for Windows (April 2005)

1. Graphical User Interface

The "Import Data in Free Format" and the "Import External Data in Other Formats" options on the "File" menu have been combined as the "Import Data" option on the "File" menu.
The "Import Data" option on the "File" menu uses the latest STAT/Transfer dynamic link libraries.
The order of the observed variables in the PTH file of a single group analysis is based on the order in the SE command instead of that of the LA command.
An intercept variable (CONST) is available as a modeling variable in the observed variable list of the PTH window.


2. PRELIS

The ST, CL and WT keywords on the DA command line for the specification of the stratification, the clustering and the design weight variables of complex survey data respectively.

3. LISREL

The ST, CL, WT and WE keywords on the DA command line for the specification of the stratification, the clustering, design weight and case weight variables respectively.
The STRATUM, CLUSTER, WEIGHT and CASEWEIGHT commands for the specification of the stratification, the clustering, the design weight and the case weight variables.

4. SurveyGLIM

The power link function for the Gamma and Inverse Gaussian sampling distributions.
The probit and complementary log-log link functions for the Binomial sampling distribution.

5. List of problems corrected

The text data files exported from PRELIS system files were incorrect.
Variable labels containing hyphens and/or blanks were incorrectly imported.
Moving covariance paths on a PTH file deleted the estimates on these paths.
The importing of certain SPSS data files generated an infinite loop which caused a non-responding problem.
The measures of fit line on the PTH window disappeared when the PTH file was opened after it was saved earlier.
Inconsistent skewness and kurtosis computations were performed if the data include constant variables.
The contents of the FTB file was inconsistent with that of the corresponding FIT file.
The RG command with labels was not working properly.
Certain equality constraints specified in SIMPLIS syntax files were not detected.
Incorrect latent variable scores were generated for certain models.
The FIML method did not work for data for which each observation has at least one missing value.
The GF, SV and PV keywords on the LISREL OU command line did not work properly for the FIML method for data with missing values.
Empty PRELIS system files were generated for certain PRELIS syntax files.
Certain multiple group analyses based on PRELIS system files yielded incorrect results.

 

U   Upgrade to LISREL 8.72 for Windows

The patch file upgrade872.exe can be used to upgrade LISREL 8.71 for Windows (October 2004) to LISREL 8.72 for Windows (April 2005).

Instructions

  • Download the "upgrade872.exe" patch file to the folder in which LISREL 8.71 for Windows is installed, for example "C:\Program Files\lisrel87".
  • Ensure that the downloaded file is approximately 15.8Mb in size. If not, please download it again.
  • Use the "Run" option on the Windows "Start" menu to run "upgrade872.exe" from the folder it was saved in.
