Unable to start Simile 6.0 Evaulation Edition


I am a licensed user for Simile (41f6132f, last two digits of license removed, DR H PALIKE), but are unable to get Simile 5.8 started. In addition, it seems that my account (hp201) is not associated with my license.


When I start Simile on MacOS 10.7.2 (on my laptop only), I get an error message as follows:

"Simile encountered an unexpected problem: can't read "userinfo(name)": no such element in array"

and under "more info":

Simile encountered an unexpected problem:

Simile v5.9 released

Simile v5.9 is a maintenance release, providing incremental improvements to many existing features and fixing some problems that have come up.

Application will not open

The application is not opening on my computer. I was registered last year (november 2010) and have not really used it since. Please can you let me know what I can do to open the application.

Thank you

Error message is:

Porting Simile model from 5.4p2 to 58


I've been trying to port a large model developed in Simile 5.4p2 to a client installation running 5.8.  The model makes extensive use of sub-models with a variable number of instances, defined at compile time by enums. 

When I load the model into Simile 5.8 and Run, the model compilation fails because it cannot interpret a line of C++ code reported as "double[14] double" - seems fair, thats not valid C++ as I understand it. (one of the enum types has 14 values, incidentally).

Error messages

Some time back I was working with my 64 bit version and it shut itself down and I was unable to get it to open the model again.  So I switched over to the 32 bit and after several tries the modle was revived.  Recently I started getting error messages again.  one said that I might want to try to debug.  I hit the OK. The part of my model that converted daily data to monthly averages was horribly modified.

Simile listed on Mac Informer

Simile 5.8 is now listed on at Mac Informer, a system maintenance tool for the Mac.

Default location for Simile Data files



Is it possible to change the default location for Simile 5.6 Example File Location as it is currently generating the following error for us:

Uploaded files can only return values left of the decimal point.

I recently created a new parameter file for my program.  The file contains my boundry conditions over 2555 days.  I have uploaded the files by the standard methods. All the values are truncated at the decimal point.  Any ideas.  I could not attach my files.

How to run Simile 5.8 under Linux: documentation

Sorry to say, the README is out of date. To start the program, execute Simile/System/bin/simile -- or if you have downloaded the 64-bit version, Simile/System64/bin/simile
The change was made to allow the 32 and 64 bit versions to be installed in the same directory. I'll get the README updated now.
