I am attempting to run a 2-1-1 MSEM following the syntax recommended by Preacher et al.

I am getting the following message in my output: THE MODEL ESTIMATION DID NOT TERMINATE NORMALLY DUE TO AN ILL-CONDITIONED
FISHER INFORMATION MATRIX. CHANGE YOUR MODEL AND/OR STARTING VALUES.

Can you offer any advice on a systematic way to modify starting values?
Thank you for your time.

You can use the SVALUES option of the OUTPUT command to get input with ending values as starting values. If that does not help, please send your output and license number to support@statmodel.com.
