Input string not in correct format HB / Choice Simulator


When I try to perform a HB analysis or run the choice simulator, I get the same error message everytime:

"The following error occured during estimation:
Input string was not in a correct format."

Why is this happening?

Can you provide more information, such as what software you're using (Lighthouse v9) and the steps you use to get the error?
Hi Walter,

I'm using Lighthouse 9.8 and the error occurs after the estimation. The settings are all stored on default.
Can you make sure you don't have old test data in the Data Management area? If test respondents have differing design parameters (attributes, levels, etc.) then analysis can have errors because it is expecting respondents that follow the current design parameters.

If that doesn't work please send your study files to support@sawtoothsoftware.com so I can take a look.
