2.6 - Run Menu

The Run Simulation command is activated once a dataset has been loaded. When a run is initiated, the StateCU GUI shells out to a DOS window to execute the StateCU program. The process status and any warning or error messages are displayed in the DOS window during StateCU execution. If the execution is successful, the DOS window will either close automatically or prompt the user to press the Enter key, and the user will be returned to the GUI to view output (Section 2.7 below). If the execution is unsuccessful, the StateCU generated log file will be displayed on the screen with a description of the error that caused the program to terminate. The user should view the StateCU Fortran Program Log File located in the Results menu or through a text editor even with a successful execution, as it may contain warnings or other pertinent information.
