Hi Zhang,

Is this ok?
In addition to Hengky's post, I would investigate your data for multicollinearity. See a.o. Field, A.P. (2010) Discovering Statistics Using SPSS, Los Angeles, CA: Sage.

Good luck,

Hi Suzanne,

SmartPLS does not run directly on MACOSX. You'll need to install Windows using Bootcamp or Parallels. Please check the following thread for more information: viewtopic.php?t=1882

I still have SmartPLS running on my iMac.

Good luck,
