Parallel: ERROR (in config file): Options should be formatte

I’m trying to set up parallel on Mac OS X Mavericks with Matlab R2014a Student Edition and Dynare 4.4.3.

The call I use is: dynare test_small_base2.mod conffile=’/Applications/Dynare/4.4.3/dynare_parallel.txt’ parallel_test

When I run it I get this error: ERROR (in config file): Options should be formatted as ‘option = value’.

Any suggestion on how to fix this would be great. Thanks!

Your dynare_parallel.txt file was made by some program that added a bunch of other text to it. Here’s what it looks like when you open it with a text editor:

{\fonttbl\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Helvetica;\f1\froman\fcharset0 Times-Roman;}

\f0\fs24 \cf0 [cluster]\

\f1\fs30 \cf0 \

Try using a plain text editor ( should work, but you may need to follow the setup instructions in this video if it isn’t…NB I haven’t tested this)

Thanks for the help, really appreciate it.
