I perform 13-factor CFA with 200 binary variables. The sample size is 2000. I use the default WLSMV estimator. But there are no results and no warning/error in the output file. So, I want to know:
(1) Can I conduct this complex model in Mplus?
(2) If yes, how do I fix the input syntax?
(3) How to decrease the time of computation in my situation?

Thanks for your help!

That's a lot of variables for WLSMV. You can try saying NOCHI NOSERR in the OUTPUT command to save time.

You can try Bayes.
