Subject: [NMusers] Wings for NONMEM Version 600 for NONMEM VI

I have uploaded a new version of Wings for NONMEM (version 600) to

Features in this version are:

This version is designed to work with NONMEM VI. A few minor changes have been made to
cope with modifications to the NONMEM VI output listing.

The default installation directory for WFN6 is c:\nmvi\wfn6. 
You should install WFN6 in a different directory from earlier versions in order to
allow you to continue to use previous versions of WFN with NONMEM V.

The code used by wfn.bat to convert long paths to 8 character format has been disabled.
This code caused problems on some versions of Windows. It was there primarily to avoid
some warnings when keeping NONMEM up to date with mknm.bat. mknm.bat is no longer
included in this version because NMQual (
does a better job at creating a qualified NONMEM installation. 

Please let me know if/when you discover bugs. This is especially likely with the
release of NONMEM VI. I have tested WFN with a beta version of NONMEM VI but in only very
limited fashion with the first public release which reached me yesterday. 

To date there have been no other testers of WFN6 with NONMEM VI. Thanks for your patience
if you get bitten by something I overlooked. Please let me know if you find
inconsistencies in the documentation which may have arisen with the change to WFN6.
