I apologize for such a basic question, but how do I start dynare++? I have changed the path of the operating system both on a machine running XP and another one running Vista, but I just simply do not know how to activate the program. I click on Dynare++.exe file, but nothing happens. Do I need to have C++ compiler or something similar?
Since I could not get Dynare++ going, I installed GNU Octave 3.2.3 to try out Dynare 4.1.0 and tried to run example2.mod file that I downloaded from dynare.org. This is what I got:

Any help you can provide me will be hugely appreciated. Needles to say, please make any explanations as simple as possible.
