EasyReg (Easy Regression) conducts various econometric estimation and testing tasks on all 32bit Windows platforms (95 through Vista), simply by clicking the mouse.
EasyReg is designed for use in empirical research (including my own), and for teaching econometrics. In the latter case the user can choose his or her own econometrics level.
EasyReg is called International because it accepts dots and/or commas as decimal delimiters, regardless of the local number setting of Windows. Moreover, EasyReg works under non-English versions of Windows as well without the need to adjust the language setting of Windows, as long as the language involved uses a roman alphabet, for example German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, and French Windows versions. However, if your Windows uses a language with a non-roman alphabet such as Japanese and Chinese, and the EasyReg menus do not open automatically when you move the mouse pointer over them, the problem is likely due to the language setting for non-Unicode programs (EasyReg is such a program). If so, open Control Panel, select "Regional and Language Options", and on the "Advanced" tab, under "Language for non-Unicode programs", select English. Click here for detailed instructions. This will fix the problem without affecting the language of Windows itself.
