@user144921 i'm pretty sure --shell-escape or something like it is the issue you're having. i presume you're supposed to enter --shell-escape into the switches field, and not the .tex file name. but this example also requires you to have gnuplot on your system, so that could be a related reason for the failure. i updated my answer to reflect this. you might be better off posting another question that specifically asks for help with using latex to execute gnuplot on windows as a third party application

@user144921 i typically work on a linux system, so i frequently compile using a terminal command - it's likely different for you. does this question help you do it in windows?

@user144921 sorry, i meant version of pgfplots, but i don't really think that's the issue. of course, i must ask the obligatory "are you sure the document you are compiling does not call example_175_contourtmp0.table anywhere?" is that your whole file? i noticed the traceback specifies line 17.

are you unable/would it not be easier to use the pgfplots package for this?
