Software FAIL

Saw an interesting new free stats tool, SOFA, which appears to be mostly a GUI binding for a bunch of other python-language stats tools. Looks like it produces nice tables (better than any other free software I've seen) so I thought I'd give it a go.

Hovering the mouse over the "import data" button shows this message: "Import data e.g. a spreadsheet, csv, or SPSS sav file."

So, I try to import a SAV file...

SOFA FAILs

(Click for full-size screen cap, or just take my word for it.)

The error message reads: "Files with the file name extension '.sav' are not supported"

Go figure.

I tried renaming it to have no file extension, but it gave me a similar error.
