International characters

Post by EduardoM » 2 weeks ago

Hi,
I'm a basic GAMS user, and I'm getting the same error, regardless of the file i'm in. I came up with the simplest optimization problem and the error still appears. it reads "Error at line 14: Could not find ShortName for International Characters".

It doesn't prevent GAMS from giving a correct answer, however. Any ideas how to fix it?

Hi,

I guess that you are executing GAMS in a directory with non-ASCII characters. GAMS has trouble with this. Please run GAMS in a directory that does only contain [a-zA-Z] characters. If this is not possible (because your home directory already has non-ASCII characters in it) choose a solveLink option (https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/UG_Gam ... Osolvelink) other than 0 e.g. "gams mymodel solvelink=5".

I hope this helps!

Fred
