Hello,

I would like to run an ESEM with given starting values for the loadings using the Geomin option as explained in the User Guide.

But when I do so;
F1 BY w*.8 x*.5 y*0 (*1);
etc.

I run into an error;
"Parameters involving EFA factors cannot be given starting values."

I've read somewhere online that it is only possible using monte-carlo option. Is this the case?

Thanks a lot,

LouisDP

You can't give starting values for ESEM factors. I'm not sure what you refer to regarding Monte Carlo.
