Octave 4.4.1 doesn´t run models

#1

Hello I have an issue using Dynare 4.5.6 on Octave 4.4.1 it displays thet dynare does not support that version and suggests to install 4.4.0 but neither that one runs. I would like to know if it is a problem on my computer or if it is a general issue, and either case how to fix it.
Thanks.

If you are under Windows, then Dynare 4.5.6 needs Octave 4.4.0, more precisely this exact binary: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/octave-4.4.0-w64_1-installer.exe

Can you try reinstalling Octave using the above link? If this does not work, could you please post the error message?

Hi I find the following message and Dynare not working. I have tried four octave versions

windows 10
Dynare 4.5.7
Octave 4.0.0, 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 5.1.0.0

error: dyn_first_order_solver: could not find library or dependencies: C:\dynare\4.5.
7\matlab…/mex/octave\mjdgges.mex

Can you confirm nochange is associated to new versions?
Any suggestion will be appreciated
Thanks in advance

Hi,

For Dynare 4.5.7 under Windows, you must install Octave 4.4.1. It will not work with any other Octave version.

Here is the download link: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/windows/octave-4.4.1-w64-installer.exe

Thanks for the info, @sebastien — I had the same problem as @pdiazs .

I don’t suppose there’ll be a version of Dynare compatible with Octave 5.1.0 anytime soon?

It’d also be great if you could update the download page to more explicitely state that only Octave 4.4.1 is supported by Dynare 4.5.7, no later (or earlier) versions.

Thanks, and thanks to all the team for your work on Dynare! :+1:
