Hello, I just started dynare as a beginner and doing in a baby step.

As I read from the userguide, my current folder in matlab is

c:\dynare\4.4.2\matlab

Also I copied the example1.mod that is given from “dynare”

I run as

dynare example1.mod

Then, the error message was

dynare example1.mod

Undefined function ‘user_has_matlab_license’ for input arguments of type ‘char’.

Error in dynare_config (line 76)

if ~user_has_matlab_license(‘statistics_toolbox’)

Error in dynare (line 48)

dynareroot = dynare_config;

Any comment is welcome to sort this problem out.

For your reference, I also attached dynare.m and dynare_config.m.

example1.mod is as follows. Thank you very much.
