Re: Installing Realcom

It sounds as if either the Matlab runtime is missing or incorrectly installed. You can make sure that you have the correct version by following the instructions in the section marked MATLAB runtime installer for Realcom on the following page: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/realcom/#downloads .

Re: unknown error message

Would it be possible to supply an example of a sequence of steps to replicate this error?

Re: error: too few quotes

Thanks for this. It appears that a bug has been introduced when parsing the reset option, which is what was causing your error. I have fixed this in the development version so it should be fixed next time we do an update. In the meantime you can either run the models without the reset option, or if ...

Re: error: too few quotes

The syntax should still match that in the help file, however it is possible that one of the undocumented options may have changed. Alternatively a bug may have crept in that wasn't picked up in testing. Would it be possible for you to provide an example of the syntax that fails?

Re: Error message: too many macros

It appears that you have hit Stata's limit for the maximum number of characters that can be stored in a macro. As this is affected by the maxvar setting you can increase this (up to a maximum of 32767 characters) with a command like the following: set maxvar 32767 Once you have done this you should ...

Can you use runmlwin with the 30-day MLwiN trial version?

A trial version of MLwiN which should be compatible with runmlwin is now available from http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/mlwin/download/.

Re: Error message: No version information foundr(198)

Are you telling runmlwin where to find mlwin.exe via the mlwinpath option, or via the $MLwiN_path global? I think that there is currently a bug where it is always expecting to find it in $MLwiN_path while displaying the results. We will fix this in a later version, but in the mean time the workaroun...

Re: Extracting Markov chains of parameters?

The parameter chains are stored by default in c1090 as a sequence of successive sets, one for each iteration. Within each set the parameters are stored with the fixed parameters first, followed by the random parameters. The order of these should match that in the equations window. You can extract a ...

Re: mlwin on a cluster

I believe that some people do use MLwiN in this way, but I have no direct experience in doing this. MLwiN does not use multiple processors, so the best way of taking advantage of this environment would be to run several copies of MLwiN in parallel.

Re: file errors

The "cannot allocate smatrix" message will appear if there is not enough worksheet space to store a matrix. You may be able to get around this by increasing the worksheet size, however if the data is corrupted this may not work as it may be trying to allocating an impossibly big matrix. Th...
