Statistica 13 repeatedly freezes (not responding)

Statistica 13 repeatedly freezes (not responding)

This question is not answered

Just upgraded to version 13, and finding it is freezing.

Version 13 periodically freezes (does not respond) for several minutes at a time. Its duty cycle is about 50%: about half the time it works and the other half it is frozen.

The file save process only takes a few seconds by comparison. So I presume it is not a file-save process.

The analyses themselves run fine.

No error messages reported.

Statistica 12 ran fine on exactly the same computer and network, so nothing has changed on the hardware. I have never had this problem with earlier versions of statistica either.

Version 13 always recovers ... eventually. However this is very frustrating and unproductive. Has anyone had a similar experience or can recommend solutions?

thank you

  • The above applied to a network license running on a WIN 7 desktop PC.

    I have now had a chance to try the stand-alone license running on a WIN8 laptop, and the problem is still there, though this time it worked for longer before freezing for longer.  This machine previously ran version 12 without any problems.

    Is any-one else having stability problems with statistica version 13? 

  • Statistica may show "not responding" if it is performing an analysis that is complicated or there is a large amount of data being analyzed. The "not responding" message is really just a Windows message indicating the application is in the process of performing its job.  So what analysis are you performing and with how much data?

  • My table is 32 variables and 2600 cases. All I am doing is ANOVA and box plots. This is not  a complex analysis.

    Statistica tends to lock up when attempting to view the results.

  • Hi IDIRK,

    Please contact Dell Statistica support online at or call 1 800 306 9329. 

  • What analysis are you running when Statistica hangs?  Are you using your own data or an example data set from within Statistica?
