Shows the procedure to install, build and run ADMB with GCC.
The Windows GCC version of ADMB works with an open source GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) implemented in Windows using a software port called MinGW. Follow the procedure to install and build ADMB programs.
Note: the AD Studio (integrated development environment) installs GCC along with ADMB and therefore may be an easier place for new users to start.
Double click the installer and follow the instructions. If you have administrative privileges, the default installation in Program Files should be fine.
If you DO NOT have administrative privileges, choose a location like c:\ADMB. This might be preferable regardless.
In the Command prompt, type the command below to build and run the simple example.
c:\ADMB> cd examples\admb\simple c:\ADMB\examples\admb\simple> admb simple c:\ADMB\examples\admb\simple> simple
If those commands give output like that shown in the screenshot below, your installation is a success.
