vensim crashes on model run

Post by WRolls »

OK, I'm a complete beginner, so apologies if I'm asking stupid questions.

I have recently started using the Vensim DSS version with windows 10, primarily so I can unpick the model that has been published here: http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.10 ... aa512/meta (vensim files available here: http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/13/ ... 0files.zip and settings here http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/13/ ... etric.xlsx.

I'm having difficulty, because whenever I try and run the model, vensim crashes and returns a windows "Vensim family has stopped" error. I wasn't expecting it to work first time (I'm still working to decipher it) but I certainly wan't expecting it to break the program...

Can anybody help?

Thanks

Will

ok. Click Model->Simulate->Advanced and then delete the entries under "Payoff definition" and "Optimization Control" and untick "Payoff report". The model should now run.

This is a bug we are aware of (and it will be fixed in the next release).

OK I get a similar error when I try to use the "game" function - any ideas on how to correct that?

Thanks

Have you removed the entries for optimization?

You registered as a PLE user, you cannot do optimization in PLE.

Ok, I see. Thank you. Which version will allow me to open the models and remove the entries for the optimization?

I'm currently a master's student and I really need to use Vensim for my thesis research. I checked the cost prices for Vensim DSS and Pro and it would be a challenge to acquire either since my funding is quite limited. Is there a way I can get an affordable version or a free version for students? Any recommendation will highly be appreciated. Thank you!

Vensim Pro/DSS is already very heavily discounted for academic use.
