(In reply to Robert Oostenveld from comment #0) oh, this goes with it: Error message: an error ocurred while running the dipoli executable - please look at the screen output Error in ft_headmodel_dipoli(line 211) The problem comes from: ama = loadama(amafile); line 31 fid = fopen(filename, 'rb', 'ieee-le'); fid=-1 ! I could replicate the error but I found no solution, so I told the user how to file bugs on the wiki.

the error is in dipoli.exe outside fieldtrip. The error message is appropriate ("an error ocurred while running the dipoli executable - please look at the screen output"). I cannot fix this, since I cannot change dipoli.exe

This closes a whole series of bugs that have been resolved (either FIXED/WONTFIX/INVALID) for quite some time. If you disagree, please file a new issue on
