• Can I increase the speed of the simulation?

    The default settings of ModelRisk are configured to run the fastest simulations. Please check if the default simulation settings are set to 'Refresh Excel on'.

    If it is, then switch it off and then the simulation will run faster. The 'Demo run' option selected by choosing Start -> Demo provides you with the option to run the simulation slower and illustrate the simulation process. In the Demo mode, the workbook is auto-updated after each iteration.

  • Is the free trial fully functional?

    The trial version of the Industrial Edition is fully functional. The speed and capacity are the same as a purchased version. With Vose Software, what you see in trial versions is what you get on purchase.

  • What are the system requirements?

    ModelRisk 4 requirements:

    System: Windows XP/Vista / Windows 7 / Mac OSX running parallels or VMWare Fusion (both 32 and 64 bit operating systems will run ModelRisk)

    Processor: Pentium or compatible

    Screen: Resolution 800x600

    Spreadsheet: Microsoft Excel 2003/2007/2010 (32 bit and 64 bit versions)

  • What do I do if I have models made in other risk analysis software?

    ModelRisk includes conversion tools for the two most common competing risk analysis Excel add-ins: @RISK from Palisade Corporation; and Crystal Ball from Oracle. There are some differences in how @RISK and Crystal Ball behave in comparison with ModelRisk. Although the converters will handle most models, we recommend that you try running the original models and converted models and compare the results to be sure the conversion has been performed correctly.

  • What file formats does ModelRisk use?

    You can save ModelRisk results in many formats such as –

    1. ModelRisk models can be saved in an Excel format.

    2. Simulation settings are saved in files with a .vmro extension.
