I use the following command to run NONMEM.

nmfe5 infile outfile.

It gives the following error message:

Warnings and errors <If any> for problem 1

<Warning 2> NM_TRAN infers that the data are population.

Stop-Problem terminated.
1 file(s) copied.

'/Fenonmem' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. No nonmem execution. There may be error message in file .txt.

What is the problem with it? Thanks.

Either the nmfe5.bat file is corrupt or perhaps the compiler is not in that path.

First check the nmfe5.bat file, in is should be the lines (about 18 lines from the end)

%f% %op% /Fenonmem %s% @link.lnk %n% %u% > %f%.txt

Type path at the command line and see if it includes the path to the compiler (probably c:\program files\DF\BIN. If it is not in the path, change the path from the control panel. Click:

Run..Settings..Control panel

Then double click the "System" icon, and select the "Environment" tab. Then select Path from the "System Variables" list, and add the ;(path to df/bin) where (path to df/bin) is the full path to your compiler executable df.exe. Usually this is c:\program files\devstudio\df\bin.

When this doesn't work either, try the nmtran-nmlink-compile-run by hand.
first delete fsubs and fdata, then type
c:\nmv\tr\nmtran < control

See if you have a (new) fsubs, fdata files.

if you do, type
copy fsubs fsubs.for



and see if you get a file link.lnk. If you do, type

df /Fenonmem fsubs.for @link.lnk c:\nmv\nm\nonmem.obj c:\nmv\nm\blkdat.obj
(the above is for the digital fortran compiler, and nonmem installed in

and see if you get the file nonmem.exe
This should allow you to figure out where the nmfe5.bat file is not working.

Good luck.
