Hi I have both Sigmaplot 7 and 10 on my system and have a similar problem in both. I have recently reformatted my hard drive and istalled a brand new Windows XP. I am not sure but I guess after this the problem appeared. The problem is that when I draw a new graph or open perviously drawn ones, the graph page appears without axes, graph and legend titles and even figures on the axes are not seen. When you minimize the view to like 10%, you see the legend box is hundreds of times bigger than normal, coveing a large area. Please help! I really need it!

1. Click the RIGHT mouse button on the icon for "SIGMAPLOT 9" 2. On the menu that appears click "PROPERTIES" with the left mouse button. This will give you a properties window. 3. Click on the "COMPATIBILITY" tab at the top right of the properties window with the left mouse button. 4. Tick the box "RUN THIS PROGRAM IN COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR:" 5. Click the drop down arrow and select the version of windows it ran in before or try "Windows XP Service Pack 3" and click APPLY.
If that doesn't solve the problem repeat steps 1 to 4 and this time select windows 2000. This should solve the problem.
I was also having the same problem previously. It is happening due to somehow the some sigmaplot versions could not find the correct path/permissions. I have solved this problem by 1. open command prompt with administrative permissions. 2. go to sigmaplot package directory 3. type the name of installer /a. the switch /a results in network installation. choose a directory different than the c:\program files. I choose D:\sigmaplot install go to the installation folder and open spw update your license as received from the company or visit their website for trial license. solved mine. later i added the shortcut to start menu.
A blue screen generally indicates an operating system error or hard drive failure. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You will need an operating system or recovery disc in order to do this. If this is a preloaded machine that didn't come with any discs, then you will need to acquire the disc.
Well, if it's your IDE controller, you're not going to get it fixed without replacing the motherboard. But it seems equally likely it could just be a short in an IDE cable. That could also lead to the corrupt files that caused you to have to reformat in the first place.
A new IDE cable is probably around $10, and available at any computer store. I'd suggest starting with that.
