Hello All 
  
I am trying to run a simulation (subproblems=100) in NONMEM on Win2000
and I am unable to get it going. I am encountering the following error message: 
  
  

PROBLEM NO.:         1     SUBPROBLEM NO.:      1

  SIMULATION STEP PERFORMED

 SOURCE  1:

    SEED1:    1624530492   SEED2:    1035921392


 PROBLEM NO.:         1     SUBPROBLEM NO.:      2

  SIMULATION STEP PERFORMED

 SOURCE  1:

    SEED1:      25867701   SEED2:             0

0SUBROUTINE GETETA NOT INITIALIZED

I checked the same file on other pc (same configurations, Pentium 4, 1.6GHz)
with win2000 and the file was running fine. I think this problem is my pc specific.
Could somebody please give me suggestions?
I reinstalled NONMEM and Visual Fortran and checked with Fortran Power Station too. 

Thanks in advance for your time

Hi,

This question was answered quite recently (Joern Loetsch 23 Oct 2001). He pointed to
an earlier nmusers thread on the same topic
(http://www.cognigencorp.com/nonmem/nm/99jul291998.html).

Unfortunately, the nmusers archive search engine
(http://www.cognigencorp.com/nonmem/nm/) was unable to retrieve these items. I tried
searching on "geteta bug" and "SUBROUTINE GETETA NOT INITIALIZED" (all search terms,
fuzzy match, case insensitive). 

Does anyone have any suggestions on using the nmusers search engine or guidance for
people like Atul who have re-discovered an old bug and would like to see if it has
been discussed on nmusers before posting a new thread?

Dr Holford

But I am really surprised by this. The same files and the same fortran
compiler, same operating system, same computer vendor, all configuration
same gives me a different results in two pc's. I checked for this error
message in another system and it could do with no problems. I did this in
WinME too and no problems it does all simulations with same NONMEM version.
Can we still say this is a bug in NONMEM?

Thanks a lot for your reply

Atul,

Did you try the 2 systems after checking that the bug was fixed (as described by
Alison Boechmann) and recompiling?

With regard to use of the search engine, I'm not sure why your second search would have failed. 
When I use the exact phrase "SUBROUTINE GETETA NOT INITIALIZED" (without quotes), fuzzy match, 
case insensitive, all search terms or as a phrase, I get 4 and 3 hits, respectively.  In each case, the recent 
message from Dr. Loetsch which references the earlier discussion, as well as the earlier thread itself come 
up.  The 'all search terms' option will look in each thread for a reference to each one of the terms you search 
on, whereas the 'as a phrase' option will look for the terms used together.  Sometimes simpler can be better, 
however, when searching for a unique word - to open up the search, use the simple search method with only 
the term "GETETA".  This should result in 8 hits, also including the two of interest. 

I hope this helps. 

Jill
