We tried to run the experiment with the new version of PsychoPy but it did not start and code compilation produced errors, too. We ran into a similar problem also issued in useVersion error in 1.85.3 and Issue1515. I think it has something to do with this change PR1137 and Issue1130.

A fast solution to the problem was opening the .psyexp-file in an editor and deleting the following line:

<Param name="Use version" updates="None" val="latest" valType="str"/>

Probably it is also enough to simply delete the "latest" entry for val.


#2

I thought it is solved but there still seems to be a problem opening the file. I can only load it into PsychoPy when Coder or Builder are already opened. Do you have any suggestions?

Welcome to PsychoPy3!

I think you don’t have git installed? That obviously isn’t a great error message to let you know that and we’ve done some work around that issue recently. We’re gradually fixing these things


#4

Ok, thank you. Your are right, we don’t have git on our lab PC. I will install it and post afterwards whether it worked.
