Why is the simulation report not saved?

← Common problems

In version 1.4.0 (and earlier) of CPN Tools, the help pages indicated that simulation reports are saved in the directory C:\tmp. If this directory does not exist, then a simulation report will not be saved. Simulation reports are saved by default as C:\tmp\simrep-<process id>.txt.

There are, however, problems if CPN Tools is not installed on the C: disk drive. If CPN Tools is not installed on the C: drive, then the X:\tmp directory must exists, where X is replaced by the name of the disk drive where CPN Tools is installed. The simulation report should then be saved in the X:\tmp directory.

Similar problems exist if your CP-net is not saved on the C: drive. If your net is saved on a different drive, then the X:\tmp directory must exist, where X is replaced by the name of the disk drive where your net is saved. The simulation report should then be saved in the X:\tmp directory.

In later versions, make sure that the simulation report is switched on (Options → Simulation Report → Save Report). If it is, try switching it off and on again.
