# Is my dynare 4.3.3 version stable

Am confused with the version of the dynare am using. to verify i tried to work with the prior steady state values of a friend who used another version of dynare. i used those value as inital values yet i could not get the staedy state. This makes me to question the statblity of my version. Please can any body also try it and tell me what is wrong the file is attached all the inital values are the prior steady state results obtained by another person with the same model.

But you did not provide any initial values for qm, qs, and M. They are initialized to 0 and lead to the error.

After adding the variable initial variables i have the following error. Note that all these values are the prior steady state values got by a friend using another version of dynare. Why am i not geting the same result with my dynare 4.3.3?

How about initializing all variables exactly the way he did? c, phi, and s are still not initialized.

Thank you after supplying everything i notice an improvemeny but yet the steady state has not come. this is what i got
what has happened and where is the problem because these are the values he used.
