  1. This problem is still not resolved and our license is less than a year old. The solutions provided by the NVivo team have yet to work.
  2. I have been blocked from NVIVO12 pro, using Windows 10 professional computer. I have been blocked upon opening NVIVO. The error message is "activation error: Unexpected activation error has occurred." We contacted QSR and they said this deactivation was a mistake and the license was re-activated "key blocked in error." The program is still not accepting the license "activated" key. We need support to solve this problem asap.
  3. Hi All: I am getting ready to start a new project with colleagues. We will all be using NVivo 11. I use parallels and run a virtual PC on my Mac. They use Macs. will we be able to share a .nvp file without trouble? Thanks, Audrey
  4. Hi Tane: I did submit the form and the screen shots. Looking forward to your response. Audrey
  5. Hi Tane: I use NVivo from a distance and I am currently locked out of my system (unrelated to my original problem). Therefore, I will submit the form soon, but I cannot see some of the answers to the forms' questions at this point. Thanks, Audrey
  6. Hi Diane: I am no expert but I have used NVivo for a long time. Here are my responses based on my experience: 1. This is not possible. 2. Yes, right click and select Open node, then code from the node into existing nodes by clicking the appropriate boxes. Or, if you highlight the content. Go to Code. Then Code at Existing Nodes. The use the check boxes to select multiple and different nodes. 3. Explore the "spread coding to" function. 4.Yes, there's a limit. Use the Memo function to expound on your node structure.
  7. A little more worried now. NVivo reported this error message: "There was an error saving your project. Please choose another location for save." And, I meant to mention, I am running the PC version on a Mac.
  8. Hello: I use a PC version of NVivo 10 and I have had a strange problem. I have worked around it, but I wanted to report it. I uploaded PDFs for a lit review project. I am coding them for content, using a node structure that I created. The PDFs in question had no previous highlighting on them and they were all readable. Since there are many PDFs, I start by opening 0 nodes and 0 references coded documents and get to coding. I also add the coded articles to a set called "First Pass Coding." When I uploaded the problem PDFs, they showed up as having 1 node and 1 reference coded. I missed them in the first pass, because they did not have zeros. Later, when cleaning up, I could not remember coding these problem PDFs. I opened them and viewed all nodes coding and highlighted coding for all nodes. Really weird highlighting showed up at places that I would not have coded (partial sentences and phrases that did not carry meaning relevant to the project). Not sure what happened. I am a little worried about my project which is 139, 520 KB (at an estimated 10% completion) because it is already relatively slow to open. How can I make sure that it is stable? I am also a little worried that the coding was wiped out because one of the messed up PDFs I definitely read and probably coded (I am 89% sure of that). My workaround is that I threw out those copies (actually just put them in a separate folder in case you would like to see them). And I recoded the PDFs. The recoded ones are fine. Thanks, Audrey
  9. Hello: I conducted a Text Search query and added it to my project. Then I sorted through the results, which I saved as a node in the Results folder of the Queries tool and set it to open upon the run. I wanted to uncode at a for a given reference, as the usage of the text (e.g., the word, indicator) was not consistent with the purpose of my search. I could not do so by using "uncode at current nodes." why not?
  10. I am using a classification sheet for a large lit review. The attributes are pub year, first author, research method, etc. When I need to add a new value to an attribute, I must go into the attributes from Classifications, rather than add a value by typing in that info from the classification tool from within the source while I have document properties and the classification sheet open. This causes an extra step.

    Archived Webinars?

    Hi, I am looking for the webinar on literature reviews from Jan 22, 2013. Is this archived somewhere?
  12. Does NVivo allow for continuous attribute values or must they be categorical?
  13. More information. I imported the classification sheet from an exel file. The source document is linked to the case nodes. So Della's interview is linked to the case node Della. Della is also a unique case in the excel files with several attributes filled in. My question: I can see Della node is connected to classification sheet Cases. However, the attributed remain "unassigned." Shouldn't there be done automatically when I imported the classification sheet?
  14. I imported a classification sheet from an older project into a newer one. The excel file ended up in the external documents folder. Under the Classification tab, I do see the sheet. It's named Case. Next, I imported a source document, which is a transcription of an interview named Della. I autocoded Della for Cases, a node. All worked well; there are two cases, Audrey and Della, and each had 89 references. Problem: When I look at source document and try to see classification, the attributes are all unassigned. Shouldn't this map to Della's attributes? Thanks, Audrey
  15. Whoops, yesterday I threw those away! The good news is that the tech support here remembered that the problem I had was occurring when there were projects saved to the desktop and/or to the documents folder. Here we use a designated drive for the location of our projects. Once I copied the strays to the drive, the crashing stopped. Thanks, Audrey
