Description: VisualPLS – Partial Least Square (PLS) Regression – An Enhanced GUI for LVPLS (PLS 1.8 PC). Visual-PLS is a Graphic-User-Interface program for Latent Variables Path Analysis with Partial Least Squares Version 1.8. It helps the researchers to prepare, edit, and do the PLS analysis more easily. VisualPLS is easy to use and runs on almost any standard PC using Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows NT or Windows XP operating system. While lvpls has a great deal of functionality and is distributed for free, its ease of use can be extremely daunting to the initial user. We hope this free software will allow the researchers to focus more on their appropriateness of the research model and data set rather than on how to get the program to run, which will dramatically decrease the time and efforts needed to complete a PLS analysis. I decide to release the source code to let interested researchers understand what happened in the software and have the opportunities to change the codes for their own use.
