Problems running dynare 4.4.3 in octave 4.0.0

Hi dear Dynare friends I am trying to run Dynare in octave 4.0.0, but the answer is as follows,

warning: Octave language extension used: bare newline inside parentheses near line 37 offile C:\octave-4.0.0\shar
e\octave\4.0.0\m\help\which.m
warning: called from

however, the steady state values are computed:

zed in a steadystate file, Dynare may not be able to solve the model…

a final error message at the end reads as follows:

Thanks for your help and guidance.

Dynare does not yet support Octave 4. You can check the status at github.com/DynareTeam/dynare/issues/1113

ok, I understand the point, bur there is any usable Octave version Dynare can work with?

Thanks

3.8.2 should work.

Great!! Dynare 4.4.3 in Octave 3.8.2 worked very good at calibrating and simulating a model.

Now I am trying to perform Bayes stimation and a new error reads:

  • ***MESSAGE FROM ROUTINE D9LGIT IN LIBRARY SLATEC.
    ***FATAL ERROR, PROG ABORTED, TRACEBACK REQUESTED
  • NO CONVERGENCE IN 200 TERMS OF CONTINUED FRACTION

***END OF MESSAGE

***JOB ABORT DUE TO FATAL ERROR.

error: Due to a bug in Octave, you must choose other values for mean and/or variance of your prior on thetinf, or

Thanks again!!

This is an Octave problem. Octave cannot compute the prior for the parameter thetinf with the given parameters. You need to adjust them
