Patch for RunGTAP

Updated 18 Aug 2016 to RunGTAP 3.69

If you have some problem with RunGTAP, you should first download and test the latest official RunGTAP release here.

If and only if the official release gives problems should you download and apply the patches below.

This page gives access to updated versions of RunGTAP.exe and some other ancillary programs associated with RunGTAP. It is intended that the patches are applied ON TOP OF the latest official RunGTAP release.

Patches are frequently updated to incorporate new minor bug fixes. Only minor testing is done after each update. Conceivably, new, undetected, bugs have been introduced. So back up your existing RunGTAP folder before installing the patch.

To install the patch

First, print out this instruction page. Then ...

(a) Close RunGTAP
(b) Make a backup or zip of your entire RunGTAP folder [but not of subdirectories below it].
(c) Download the files RGTPATCH.ZIP and RGTPATCH2.ZIP (each about 15 MB) into your RunGTAP folder.
(d) Unzip RGTPATCH.ZIP and RGTPATCH2.ZIP into the RunGTAP folder (overwriting some existing files). Look at the files PATCHLIS* if you want to know what files are contained in the ZIP files.
(e) Start RunGTAP and try it out. You may get the warning "Obsolete or missing SLI file" the first time you load each "version". Use the RunGTAP Tools..Run Test Simulation command to avoid the warning.

If you have a problem, you can restore previously existing files using the backup you made at step (b).

Note
This patch updates RunGTAP.EXE and some other generic programs. It does not contain the full RunGTAP product. In particular, it does not contain the "version" subdirectories or files relating to the GTAP model. It should be safe to unzip the patch into your RunGTAP directory: this will not alter GTAP.TAB or any data files. OTHER patches are available from the GTAP web site for the latest version of GTAP.TAB and for certain "versions" which can be used with RunGTAP.

GTAP model EXE for PCs running 64-bit Windows

This EXE has been compiled with the Intel 64-bit compiler, so it only works with 64-bit Windows and can solve any size of GTAP database (if you have enough RAM).

If you have a version of RunGTAP more than 2 years old (check this from the Help..About menu item), you should first update your RunGTAP installation.

Download the file GTAPMP64.ZIP (about 3.6 MB) and unzip into your RunGTAP folder. There are more instructions in the file GTAPMP64.DOC.
