Hi Nikola and Laura,

Could you tell me how exactly you solved the problem? Is this something that needs to be done via the command line? Because I was just calling the functions through the EEGLAB GUI.

For me, it occurred when the EEGLab data struct was converted to the FieldTrip format if the icaact field (EEG.icaact) was empty when the function eeglab2fieldtrip was called. Even if the field was not empty when starting DIPFIT, the .icaact can be set to [] by eeg_checkset if the option option_computeica is false. For me the problem was fixed by making sure that option_computeica was set to true and making sure that EEG.icaact was not empty when DIPFIT was started. I hope this helps.
