Describe downloading, installing and using ADMB from binary zip release for Windows.
To test and debug admb programs using a debugger, download admb-12.2-windows-debug.zip with debugging symbols. Since using the debug libraries will result in slower runs, it is only recommended for troubleshooting and debugging code.
Double click downloaded zip file and extract to C:\ADMB-12.2.
Change to simple example directory.
C:\> cd \ADMB-12.2\examples\admb\simple
Build simple example.
C:\ADMB-12.2\examples\admb\simple> C:\ADMB-12.2\admb simple.tpl
Debug — Use the admb debug option -g for debugging.
Run simple example.
Read manuals for more information.
Optional — Configure PATH
Add the ADMB directories C:\ADMB-12.2\bin and C:\ADMB-12.2\utilities to the system enviroment PATH variable. This will allow admb to be used in every Windows Command Prompt.
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.
