    Change to simple example directory.

    Build simple example.

    C:\admb-13.2\examples\admb\simple> admb simple.tpl

    Run simple example.

  4. Configure PATH Optional

    An alternative to using the ADMB-13.2 Command Prompt is to add the ADMB installation directory C:\admb-13.2\bin to the system enviroment PATH variable. This will allow admb to be used in the Windows Command Prompt.

AD Studio

Alternatively, install AD Studio, a dedicated environment for developing ADMB and TMB models. It uses the C++ compiler from Rtools and has especially good support for R, LaTeX, Markdown, GDB, and Git.

AD Studio 1.0 comes with ADMB 12.0, which is one version older than 12.1.
