path contains dots (see Shige's example below), and the user types the
full path of the executable (as admb-mode was doing), then the model won't
First create two folders, called c:/simple and c:/x.y, both containing
simple.exe. Now navigate to the directory and type the full path of the
executable instead of just 'simple':
This is the behavior of ADMB both in Windows and Linux. It can cause
problems with makefiles and other automated methods.
