I'm trying to debug an SPSS Visual Basic / ActiveX script right now after it randomly stopped working. It worked perfectly fine for weeks, but yesterday it just stopped for absolutely no reason. Not a character in the source code changed. The thing was marked Read-only; it's not POSSIBLE it changed. So how can it work one minute and stop working the next?
This is very close to what I imagine Hell is like.
"Unknown internal error". You can't get much better than that. Oh wait, I'm sorry, you can. Utilizing state-of-the-art VB debugging techniques, I am able to expand upon that:
**ERROR** ((&H800405e8) Unknown internal error.)
Ah, the old &H800405e8. I should've known! Now I know immediately how to solve this issue. My solution does involve launching my computer in a somewhat ballistic manner off the top of this building, but it couldn't hurt.
SPSS 13 is such a shoddy product, the company that made it should be sued.
