I am trying to run GSEA or the first time using the GUI application. 

I created all files in the formats specified and they successfully got loaded however on running the command, it gives me an error saying -

The command line is -

I really can't seem to figure what's going wrong. Can anybody help ?

Thanks !

So I figured this on my own - I was creating the phenotype on the fly in the windows GUI and for some reason that was creating this issue. Once I created the phenotype as .cls file and uploaded that, I did not encounter any error. Seems like this bug should be resolved from GSEA's end.

However now if anybody encounters this error - they know what to do !

I am having a parsing error problem when loading files into GSEA. According to their documentations it is an extension error. The extensions are fully showing in my Windows 8 system and making sure that phenotype extension is .cls still creates the parsing error. As your problem seems to be similar to mine, could you give me any advice to solve it?

My problem was not really this but I'd sugeest you save the documents in the exact manner it has been mentioned in the documentation. follow it to the tee. I do remember vaguely not following it completely and running into some issues. If you still run into issues, try mailing the gsea mailing list, they usually do respond back.
