I am providing Prediction Model generated by HMM Baum-Welch Learner  and ExampleSet by selecting one attribute from excel  to Apply model operator
but Apply Model throws an null pointer exception.
The XML of process is as follows:

    if I get it correctly the HMM Baum-Welch Learner is part of something like a hmm extension, which is not officially supported by Rapid-I. The problems in Apply Model are probably caused by an erroneous model produced by that extension, but since I don't have the extension I can't reproduce your problem. Please contact the author of that extension for further help.
