[SOLVED] RM 5.3: Batch process fails while GUI not

I know it sounds strange but my process executes successfully in a RM GUI-Session but it fails with the following in Batch-Mode:

   <description>&lt;p&gt; Often the different operators have many parameters and it is not clear which parameter values are best for the learning task at hand. The parameter optimization operator helps to find an optimal parameter set for the used operators. &lt;/p&gt;  &lt;p&gt; The inner crossvalidation estimates the performance for each parameter set. In this process two parameters of the SVM are tuned. The result can be plotted in 3D (using gnuplot) or in color mode. &lt;/p&gt;  &lt;p&gt; Try the following: &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Start the process. The result is the best parameter set and the performance which was achieved with this parameter set.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Edit the parameter list of the ParameterOptimization operator to find another parameter set.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;/p&gt; </description>

    in the next line of code RapidMiner is going to shutdown, so your process should have finished before.
    Don't trust the log in this case. I've fixed the NPE nevertheless ;)

    Thanks for reporting,

    I have the same problem. Is maybe any solution to this one?

    the error was no problem. It also should have been fixed in the latest release, so please update RapidMiner if you have not yet done so.
