Posterior IRF

Hi, all.

The previous five shocks showed but when it went to the six shocks, I had the following error messages in the IRF of bayesian estimation. Any one helps me to solve this problem?

I faced the same problem not just once. Thanks.

are you sure you assign a value to the standard deviation of that shock? Is it well specified? Please post your mod-file


This look like a permission issue. Do you have the adequate rights in this directory ?

Thanks for the reply.

what do you mean " Do you have the adequate rights in this directory ?"

Most of the time I can get the result but I got the errors in a few time.

I did assign the value for the shock.

And I just got the same error tonight.

Very confused when I got this error.

By permission rights I mean the administrative rights on your machine to create or modify files in a given directory. This is not a Dynare issue but a system administration issue. You probably need to contact your IT service to solve this.
