I am currently using Dynare 4.1.2. I have a problem for reproducing the two following examples gaved with the Dynare User Guide (RBC_Est.mod and fs2000ns.mod). When I run Dynare with these two programs, after a few time, I get an error message. The programs are not converging. Can you help. Thanks.

After I RUN the programme ,there is an erroras following:

Starting Dynare (version 4.1.2).

Starting preprocessing of the model file …

ERROR: rbc.mod:32.6: syntax error, unexpected COMMA, expecting EQUAL

??? Error using ==> dynare

DYNARE: preprocessing failed

THE programm(filename is rbc .mod) is as following:

var y c k i l w r z;

varexo e;

parameters beta psi delta alpha rho epsilon;

model;

(1/c) = beta*(1/c(+1))*(1+r(+1)-delta);
psi*c/(1-l) = w;

c+i = y;

y = (k(-1)^alpha)

w = y

r = y*((epsilon-1)/epsilon)*alpha/k(-1);

i = k-(1-delta)

z = rho

end;

varobs y;

initval;

k = 9;

c = 0.7;

l = 0.3;

w = 2.0;

r = 0;

z = 0;

e = 0;

end;

steady;

check;

estimated params;

alpha,beta_pdf,0.35,0.02;

beta,beta_pdf,0.99,0.002;

delta,beta_pdf, 0.025, 0.003;

psi,gamma_pdf,1.75,0.02;

rho,beta_pdf,0.95,0.05;

epsilon,gamma_pdf,10.05, 0.003;

stderr e,inv_gamma_pdf,0.01,inf;

end;

estimation(datafile=RBC,mh_replic=2000,mh nblocks=2,mh drop=0.45,mh jscale=0.8,

mode_compute=6);

How about using the underscores in estimated_params, mh_drop, and mh_jscale?

I need a program to run with Dynare 4.1.2. It is Ableton. anyone have any idea, how i can do this?
