Dear prof. Pfeiffer,

I hope this message finds you well,

I am trying to execute the following file: EA_Quest3.mod I would like to know why is this error appearing. Thanks in advance,

Carlos Merino

Hi, the problem here is that the MMB is not yet compatible with Dynare 4.6. You need to use Dynare 4.5 for that file.

Thank you very much, using Dynare 4.5.7 I get the following message, which I don´t know how to solve. thanks in advance.
