I am working LISREL 8.72 for the Structural Equation model and Factor Analysis. I have 10 Factors under the heading of Conflict Management. I have done the pilot study and collected around 100 Samples. If I go with the SPSS it says that the Alpha Value ( Reliability = 0.92 ) .
Once I started to use the LISREL through SIMPLEX command , (F8) , I have problem that its not working properly and says that the " Model Does not Converge"
I have the output Attached and it gives me error that I couldn't Understand.
Kindly I request the experts to help me to provide the solutions that helps me to understand the LISREL more..
I have attached the Output and please go through for your kind reference.

W_A_R_N_I_N_G: THETA-DELTA is not positive definite
W_A_R_N_I_N_G: The solution was found non-admissible after 50 iterations.
The following solution is preliminary and is provided only
for the purpose of tracing the source of the problem.
Setting AD> 50 or AD=OFF may solve the problem
