This issue is related to you PATH, which is described in step 3 of that
install page. I can imagine two potential issues:
1) you are installing the 64-bit version of ADMB, but you do not have the
64-bit C++ compiler installed
2) you do not have a 64-bit version of Windows
You should check that the folders you entered into the PATH in step 3
actually exist. If they do not, find the folders that contain 'cl.exe',
which is the Microsoft compiler. If you do not have 'cl.exe' in a folder
called amd64, then you do not have the 64-bit compiler and you
should install 32-bit ADMB.
If you do have a 64-bit version of windows and really want to compile
64-bit executables, you can get the 64-bit compiler in the Windows SDK
download, which installs a 64-bit cl.exe in the amd64 folder.
As you can see, setting up ADMB to compile 64-bit programs is slightly more
challenging than the 32-bit version of ADMB. If you would like the latest
version of ADMB, you can build it from the source. See the downloads page
And follow the instructions in INSTALL.TXT. Or, probably the easiest way
to get running with ADMB is to install ADMB-IDE.
Good luck and please let me know if you any questions,
