This looks really good Jon.  Thanks for compiling (no pun intended) all of this information.

Since version 11.0, the ADMB Project has lacked a clear procedure for installing and building ADMB on Windows computers, with support for both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. A group of us have recently posted both software tools and documentation that solve this problem, particularly for new users with limited knowledge of ADMB and operating systems generally. See:


I enclose a copy of the installation guide for your convenience. It contains detailed instructions for installing ADMB using our binary libraries or building it from the latest source code. An Appendix explains fundamental concepts like environment variables and paths. Even users on other operating systems might find useful information here. We compare ADMB installations on Windows and Unix-based systems.

Hopefully, our procedures work without problems. We’re interested in feedback, of course.

Best wishes,


PS – If you use ADMB on Windows, you might want to save the above URL for future reference. To reach this page on the ADMB Project site (http://www.admb-project.org/),  click the “Tools” tab, and select the folder “ADMB Tools for Windows” in the left column.
