Hello!

I just tried to estimate the RBC model from the Dynare user guide. For some reason it doesn’t work but I can’t figure out where the bug lies. If someone of you could help me out, I would appreciate it a lot!

Always I try to run the model the following error message shows up:

dynare RBC_est

Does it have to do with the version of Dynare? I have tried several versions, but the problem is still there.

It would be great if anyone out there could give me a hint
