Thanks Ruben,

  I'll give it a try, but I think I did those things. Not sure that mpich2=
 is outdated- it works just fine, but isn't compatible with Rmpi package, a=
nd it seems I can't have both on a machine, need to "pick a side" (Microsof=
t or non-Microsoft). Not clear there is a way to specify which mpiexec to u=
se in a given application, along with lots of other stuff I don't understan=
d.

Hi Mark,

Last time I tried this (2016, Windows 8 64-bit), NONMEM needed some convinc=
ing:
1) You have to copy over the right object files from Microsoft MPI into the=
 NONMEM mpi link directory mpi\mpi_wini; _and_ change the nmfe compiler cal=
l to include the right Microsoft MPI libraries. This should allow you to co=
mpile a nonmem executable using the Microsoft MPI libraries.
2) You need to launch nonmem with the right wrapper (I think it was mpiexec=
)
3) You have to configure firewall rules to allow local communication for MP=
I. This may be tricky, as windows detects each nonmem.exe as a different ex=
ecutable with different firewall rules. If I remember correctly, this is wh=
ere I got stuck last time.
It *did* work however when deactivating the Windows Firewall.

Hopefully these vague pointers can help you; I unfortunately did not retain=
 my notes.
If you get it working, it would be worthwhile to document this process for =
the community! My suggestions to link to Microsoft MPI by default (as mpich=
2 is hopelessly outdates) were not high on ICON's priority list.

Best regards,
Ruben
