Sorry, Ian, that was solved as well...

Hi Mark,

I don't have any good ideas on how the change in operating would have
messed up your old model. 


However, ADMB's default memory settings were improved last year with
Therefore, your model might work just fine if you simply delete that
block of lines related to memory and run with the defaults. 


Since your model is monstrous, it may need adjustment, but the error
messages you get will hopefully be specific enough to tell you which
setting(s) to increase, rather than the uninformative allocation error
that you got.

I would run it in debug mode and find out the line where it crashes.

Otherwise a common cause of this is that the program is getting a bad
number somehow
and doing something like this

   dvector v(1,n);   // n contains garbage which is interpreted as a
huge number.
