New User Installation? Problem


I just downloaded version 4.0.3 and can’t seem to be able to make any examples work except the deterministic case. For the first stochastic example, I first created myself but then downloaded the file ( RBC_Monop_JFV) from the website and ran it. I have student version of MatLab 2007a. I get what seems like all of the output (including a set of graphs I can’t print) followed by the error messages below. Much appreciated if anyone can shed some light.


?? Error using ==> graphics\private\prepare at 307

Previously accessible file “C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2007a\toolbox\matlab\graphics\private\fireprintbehavior.m” is now inaccessible.

Error in ==> RBC_Monop_JFV at 134

Error in ==> dynare at 102

Never seen that kind of message before. My intuition is that it comes from a problem in your Matlab setup rather than in Dynare.

Can you try to use the “print -depsc2” command outside the context of Dynare ?



Hi Sébastien,

Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, you are right. I get the same message. The problem is in Matlab. Sorry to trouble you. I expect all will go well once I get that sorted out.

Thanks again,
