    I have no idea out to use this thing. The tutorial shows a screen shot but gives no indication of how to get to that operating page. How disappointing.

    I don't where to find the KH Coder window shown on page 4 of the tutorial.

    I am using Windows 7.

    OK.

    1. Download the "khcoder-2b30e-f.exe" here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/khc/files/KH%20Coder/2.Beta.30/

    2. After the download is done, double click "khcoder-2b30e-f.exe" and click “Unzip” Button

    3. Click the “start” button (flag button on the bottom left corner of the screen), input “C:\khcoder” to the “Search programs and files” entry, then hit Enter key. The “khcoder” folder should be opened now.

    4. Double click “kh_coder.exe” or “kh_coder” in the opened “khcoder” folder.

    Thank you. I hadn't seen any-where where it said the program had to be down-loaded to be used.

    I successfully downloaded and installed KH Coder. It appears to work fine with the example in the quick start tutorial. But then I imported a another text file from my own source. When I tried to run pre-processing it returned a message "something wrong with the database: bun_r table" then the program just shut down. Can anyone help me out of this alley.

    Hmm, you have to prepare a plain text file (*.txt) as a "target file" for KH Coder. Not Word (*.doc *.docx) or PDF (*.pdf). And the encoding of the text file should be something like "Latin-1," "ISO 8859-1," "US-ASCII," or "Plain ASCII."

    Also, be sure that the text file doesn't contain any tab characters or any other control characters other than "line feed." And you should delete "<," ">" and "\" from your data. To delete those characters, text editors like notepad++ are very useful.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I'll try them out and see what happens. I hope this will be the solutions I need, since the program looks to be the kind which would fullfill the kinds of things I wish to do. Thanks again.

    I successfully downloaded and installed KH Coder. I tested the Botchan file and it worked fine. The text I'm analyzing is from a listserv. I deleted all the <, >, \ and I am still not able to complete the run. I repeatedly get the same message: Something wrong with the database: bun_r table KH Coder will exit now. Will it help if I attach my text file and the coder_data folder sent to me for your review?

    Yes, your text file would be helpful. I don't need coder_data folder for now.

    It seems that there were many non Latin1 characters in the text file. To delete those characters, I opened the text file with Word 2010 and save it as a text file in "US ASCII" encoding (I checked the "Allow character substitution" option).

    Then it's OK with KH Coder. I attach the edited text file.

      Thank you for the corrections. I'll follow your suggested steps for processing the next file. Do you think the excess URLS are causing the non-Latin1 character problems?
