We running an experiment in which a sound file is played simultaneously as a picture is presented. All sounds files and images are pulled from a folder that is linked to the experiment. Additionally, all experimental files are saved in the same folder (stimuli and E-Prime). Our experiment runs fine through the practice trials (which is the same set up as the experimental trials), but once we reach the experimental trials, a Runtime error occurs that says "Cannot set sound presenter positions since start is greater than duration". This does not make sense to us since our durations are all set to infinity and no start times are past that. Also, all of the settings for the experimental trial are the same as the practice trial so we are unsure as to why they would not work in the experimental trials. Additionally, the experiment crashes at various times i.e. not at the same stimulus every time: sometimes we get 1 trial in and other times we get, say, 5 trials in. It is very random. We believe this to be a software processing problem as opposed to a script problem since the crash occurs at different times and the practice trials run smoothly. We were wondering if you have any suggestions as to how to trouble shoot this? We have updated to the latest version Windows - Windows 10 May 2020 (version 2004).
If you guys need any additional information, please feel free to reach out. We would love to have this experiment up and running as soon as possible!
