Dynare.m error messge


I just installed dynare version 4.2.1 and ran the files in the example folder to test if the installation is properly done.
And I got the following error message.

??? Error: Unexpected MATLAB operator.

Error in ==> dynare at 132
evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

My matlab is version 7.10.0 (R2010a).

Can anyone help me how to fix this problem?


What exactly did you do/type? See also [New to Dynare, problems opening files)

Thank you for responding.
I typed “dynare shrunk”, where “shrunk” is the name of the mod file.

Is the model file really called “shrunk.mod”? Or are there any other characters in it? Do the example files of Dynare run?
