Can't start Gtplot from GSS


 Share

Recommended Posts

When I load one of my old files and try to plot (any plot) from GSS the program crashes. This doesn't happen with an example GSS file. I've attached one of the (many) files that dies. I've tried different thermo data bases etc. Of course I have a deadline for a paper that uses data from these files.

Hi Marty,

 

It looks like GSS and Gtplot do not like the calculated mineral saturations from older versions of GWB. In prior releases of GSS, the mineral saturation calculated and the unit label were not in the same form (log Q/K vs Q/K). If you look in your spreadsheet, it says Q/K, but actually log Q/K is reported (you'll see some negative values which will clue you in to this). If you delete the columns with mineral saturation, then recalculate, you should be all set(you can have either Q/K or log Q/K in your spreadsheet). You should check your old spreadsheets to see whether they are correct. Sorry about this mistake in an old release.

 

Hope this helps,

Dear GWB Support,

 

Gtplot has recently started crashing. It first started crashing on a large data base of 7,000 sites. I thought perhaps it was the number of sites that was causing the problem. However, after opening a small project of just 17 sites I’m still experiencing the same issues with GTplot crashing. Can you please help?

 

Cheers

 

Clint

Hi Clint,

 

You'll need to be a little more specific. Which version of GWB are you using? Are you opening Gtplot from GSS? What type of operation are you performing before Gtplot crashes?

 

FYI, unless you are directly replying to a topic or a conversation on the forum, it's best to post a new topic (this is a pretty old thread). Please reply directly to support@gwb.com.

 

Cheers,

Brian
