PsychoPy 3.0.6 and 3.0.7
Hello everyone. I’m a beginner at using this software and I’m currently using it to do a stroop task in a small but important experiment for my master thesis in lighting design testing the effect peripheral discomfort glare might have on task performance.
I have been under a lot of time pressure to get the whole setup ready and tested psychopy before I started getting it to work and thinking it would be the least of my problems. But now I am starting and the test I created won’t run and it’s making me panic a bit.
First it gave me some error codes I could try to figure out but I decided just to rebuild and that seemed to work it out. Then I used the rebuild test for a day.
When I wanted to use it the next day, the rebuild one didn’t work either, but now it gives no error codes. It seems like it’s just presenting the background screen ofthe test. In my test I have a grey background and in the demo stroop it probably have black, or at least that’s what it shows. I can’t get out of the background after this and I can’t get the task manager to appear and close the program. I can see it has opened when I flip through the windows when tab, but it won’t pop up. My soloution is to press ctrl+alt+delete and sign out and sign in again, but this appears to restart the computer or something which is unusual. All programs closes and internet connection restarts (my VPNs tries to reconnect).
As mentioned, the demo works the same way, indicating it is not my test but psychopy itself which is in the wrong, so I tried to uninstall (probably 3.0.6) and reinstall (recently published 3.0.7) standalone version found in the link at the top of the installation page. I also reinstalled python from their webpage. But, it is still doing the same thing with both my test and the demos. It’s not sending to another display either, which I checked. If I run a demo which is not in full-screen mode then I can get PsychoPy to the front and press the red stop button which then closes the only-background-window.
I have no clue what is going on and I’m afraid even rebuilding the test won’t work anymore. I’m in the middle of my testing period and I can’t get it to work. I’m a little stressed out. Hope you can help.
