I tried to compute the ML fiting function by computing the log likelihood of the covariance matrix assuming that it follows a Wishart's distribution but I cannot find the good result.???

The Mplus ML fitting function is given in (96) on p. 355 of the User's Guide. The Wishartbased likelihood differs from the Mplus likelihood (based on assuming normal outcomes) only by a factor corresponding to sample size n1.
