[NMusers] Update on NONMEM 7.4

From: Bauer, Robert <>
Date: Fri, 14 Jul 2017 23:26:15 +0000

Dear nmusers:
Some of our users who run NONMEM 7.4 in a Linux environment are experienci=
ng a copy error of the following type:

cp: cannot open '/opt/NONMEM/nm74g/pr/JAC2.f90' for reading: Permission den=

f951: Error: Can't open file '/opt/NONMEM/nm74g/pr/JAC2.f90'

<built-in>: Fatal Error: can't open input file: /opt/NONMEM/nm74g/pr/JAC2.f=

compilation terminated.

This occurs if the user is not also the original installer of the NONMEM, o=
r is not the administrator. The group and world permissions of files in th=
e ../pr directory need to be set to read and execute (or at least read) to =
avoid this error message. Please have your administrator or owner of the N=
ONMEM installation execute the following Linux command from the pr sub-dire=
ctory of the NONMEM directory (this needs to be done only once for a given =
NONMEM installation):

chmod 755 *.f90

There is no need to re-install NONMEM.

A new installer file has been uploaded, dated 12-JUL-2017, =
which has the proper permission setting, so this matter is rectified for fu=
ture downloads.

Be aware that the NONMEM task may still execute after this error message oc=
curs, but memory issues may arise if $SIZES PC=xxx is set in the control=
 stream file and this permission issue was not corrected.
