I’m been using the windows GUI to do rarefaction.single on shared files and have started encountering problems between my last project (in August) and now.
Now when I’ve entered a shared file (set up like all other share files before it) I get an invalid group name error. I have taken out all spaces and reduced the size of the same and still get the same error. I haven’t run any thing other then the rarefaction single since I’m actually creating share files from non-Mothur data for this.
I then broke up my share file so that I had only one sample rather then the 34 that were in the shared file. (Thinking that maybe it was a processor issue or something). It seemed to accept the file and the output window says:
Using 1 processors
Then windows came up with a crash warning that says mothur.exe has stopped working and the Mothur GUI seems to have frozen.
This is being run on a windows 7 64 bit machine with lots of RAM and memory (so shouldn’t be having memory problems), and I have run similar files with Rarefaction.single on this computer before.
(I will try the function on the command line interface… and that gives the same error with the shared file - no valid groups.)
Additional crash details from windows… which I’m not sure if they’ll actually be helpful.
