Subject:      Bug fix for ghost syntax window for NT4.0 and SPSS 7.5??
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I have started using SPSS 7.5 Windows NT 4.0 and have a problem opening syntax windows. When I open a syntax window (either new, existing file, or pasting) I get a "ghost" window that only shows the title bar and border. It disappears if I grab the data editor window and sweep it over the screen, but NT still thinks it exists (there is an icon on my task bar as if it is still there). The tech support folks told me that this is a bug with a "work-around"; the work-around is to open a first syntax window (which should supposedly work correctly) and maximize the window - then all subsequent windows should be OK. The problem is, that I don't even get a normal FIRST syntax window anymore. I even tried reinstalling SPSS. (I have Service Pack 2 for NT4.0)

If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated.
