[Eeglablist] problems with ERP

Dear All,

I have sent an email asking for help as I processed my first block with all
success but EEGlab does not allow me to do ERPs (the buttom appears grey)
for my second block even if I had go though the same preprocessing. Using
the newest version of EEGlab,  I received a message I have not received
ussing olders versions:

"Cannot load file 'X.icatopo'
Note that plotting ICA component ERPs require
to precompute ICA topographies (see tutorial)

(Error occurred in function correcfile() at line XXX)

That sounds quite strange as I ran ICA (fastICA) in all these files.

That was the command lines I used for preprocessing:

 files = dir('*.cnt');

for i = 1:length(files)

EEG = pop_loadcnt(files(i).name, 'dataformat', 'auto', 'memmapfile', '');

EEG = eeg_checkset( EEG );

EEG = pop_select(EEG,'nochannel',{'EKG', 'EMG', 'HEO', 'VEO'});

if EEG.srate ~= 500
    EEG = pop_resample( EEG, 500)
EEG = eeg_checkset(EEG);

EEG = pop_eegfiltnew(EEG, 'locutoff',0.5,'hicutoff',50,'plotfreqz',1);

EEG = eeg_checkset( EEG );


EEG = eeg_checkset( EEG );

originalEEG = EEG;

EEG = clean_rawdata(EEG, 5, [-1], 0.8, -1, 5, 0.25);
%EEG = clean_rawdata(EEG, 5, 'off', 0.8, 4, 20, 'off');

EEG = pop_interp(EEG, originalEEG.chanlocs, 'spherical')

EEG = pop_reref( EEG, []);

EEG = eeg_checkset( EEG )

EEG = pop_runica(EEG,'icatype','fastica');

artcomps = MARA(EEG);

EEG = pop_subcomp(EEG,artcomps,0);

EEG = eeg_checkset( EEG );


I see all triggers  and all components available in all files. Also I
checked to see  the answer to icaweights.

The answer to the question


 was for

*each and all subjects *
ans =

    25    64

Anyone could help me out diagnosing the problem?  I am really running
against time to present my results as I am for short period abroad doing
this job.
