st: Structural equation model

Dear all,

I am trying to assess the time invariance of a construct in a three
time point longitudinal study. I wrote the sem do command like

sem ( d11@1<-D06 _cons@c1) (d12 d13 d14 d15 <-D06) ///
    ( d21@1<-D08 _cons@c1) (d22 d23 d24 d25 <-D08) ///
    ( d31@1<-D10 _cons@c1) (d32 d33 d34 d35 <-D10), ///
	var(e.d11 e.d12 e.d13 e.d14 e.d15) ///
	var(e.d21 e.d22 e.d23 e.d24 e.d25) ///
	var(e.d31 e.d32 e.d33 e.d34 e.d35) ///
	means(D06 D08 D10) ///
	var(D06 D08 D10)

where D06, D08, D10 are the three constructs. In most of the analyses
I did I did not get the upper confidence limit for RMSEA. Whether my
do command is wrong. I am struggling with this. I got the output

Fit statistic	Value	Description
Likelihood ratio	
chi2_ms(87)	3574.504	model vs. saturated
p > chi2	0.000
chi2_bs(105)	13222.411	baseline vs. saturated
p > chi2	0.000
Population error	
RMSEA	0.127	Root mean squared error of approximation
90% CI, lower bound	0.000
upper bound	.
pclose	0.000	Probability RMSEA <= 0.05
Information criteria	
AIC	75351.287	Akaike's information criterion
BIC	75630.339	Bayesian information criterion
Baseline comparison	
CFI	0.734	Comparative fit index
TLI	0.679	Tucker-Lewis index
Size of residuals	
SRMR	0.081	Standardized root mean squared residual
CD	0.963	Coefficient of determination
Here the upper 95% for RMSEA is missing. Not only in this analysis in
most of the analyses I got this proble. Please help.
