SmartPLS2 and SmartPLS3

Post by alexmalova » Thu Dec 04, 2014 4:30 pm

Hi! I have a problem that I calculate simple PLS-SEM model with the same data in SmartPLS2 and SmartPLS3 and receive different results in both cases. Maybe I didn't adjust the new version. Could anybody help me and tell how I can receive the same results with the old version and new one. The difference is in direct impacts, outer weights, R-squared and so on. Thank you very much!

There should be no difference. Usually, people who report this problem used wrong data settings. For example, it can make a huge difference if you used the wrong number format (i.e., decimal sign; dot or comma).
