This bug has been corrected in E-Prime 2.0 ((22.214.171.1243).
When an experiment design includes thousands of trials containing Task Events or has many Task Events per trial, E-Prime may freeze at runtime after several thousand Task Events have run.
In some cases, the following error also appears:
E-Studio.exe - Application Error
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
Upgrade to E-Prime 126.96.36.1993 or later.
This workaround is only intended for those who are unable to update to the version of E-Prime that contains the bug fix:
Consider redesigning your experiment to use fewer Task Events or trials. For assistance in doing this without losing functionality, contact a Technical Consultant at firstname.lastname@example.org. Attach your experiment (.es2) file and any dependent files that are needed to run it. Also, test your experiment fully before collecting data.
