ROV Runtime for Risk Simulator

RISK SIMULATOR RUNTIME is the FREE* basic runtime version of Risk Simulator 2012. In the full version of Risk Simulator, you can set up and run advanced simulation, forecasting, analytics, and optimization. RUNTIME, however, is a scaled down version that can only run simulations and optimizations on models that have been previously set up using the full version.

RISK SIMULATOR RUNTIME is the FREE* basic runtime version of Risk Simulator 2012. In the full version of Risk Simulator, you can set up and run advanced simulation, forecasting, analytics, and optimization. RUNTIME, however, is a scaled down version that can only run simulations and optimizations on models that have been previously set up using the full version. A simple analogy is Adobe PDF Reader (this runtime version can only open/read previously created PDF files) versus the full-version of Adobe Professional Writer (capable of creating PDFs as well as performing many other functions). To understand the full functionality of Risk Simulator, we recommend you visit the software's web page, watch some getting started videos, and download and explore the full version (the default trial license is 10 days).

This RUNTIME software is FREE for all current customers with purchased licenses of the full version. You can download the fully functional RUNTIME software with a default 10-day trial period and contact us at admin@realoptionsvaluation.com for your free license. All others interested in the tool will only have to pay a small nominal fee. Please contact us for more information.

The free RISK SIMULATOR RUNTIME software can be used to perform the following functions:

1. Run a simulation in a previously set up model
2. Run an optimization in a previously set up model
3. Create simulation reports
5. Change, delete, and switch between simulation and optimization profiles
6. Edit simulation profile settings
7. Run simulations and dynamic optimizations at super speed
8. Step and reset simulation runs
9. Extract simulated data
10. Open or import saved simulation results
11. Run overlay charts (PDF, CDF, ICDF, S-curves)
12. Switch among 10 languages:
English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese
13. Switch among 6 random number simulation methods
14. Switch among 3 correlation copula methods
15. Switch between Monte Carlo and Latin Hypercube Sample methods

How do I install the software?

Make sure that you have administrative rights to install the software, and that your system requirements match or exceed those required in Item 1 above. In addition, make sure you have .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 or later already installed on your computer. Then, simply download the trial or full version of the software, double click on the exe file, and follow the instructions. Make sure to first uninstall any older versions of Risk Simulator before attempting to install a new version.

Resolution Issues

In WIN7 and Vista, users have the option to change the screen resolutions by “zooming in/out” and not just using a regular resolution change. When changing resolutions the regular approach (e.g., changing from 1280 x 800 to 1080 x 680) will not affect ROV software look and feel. However, using the zoom function does mess up some visuals (this is true of all software out there, and Windows actually even provides a warning message explaining this). The first two figures illustrate some effects of this zoom view.
Solution: Click on Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display and you see the user interface (see the third figure below). Change the view back to “Smaller 100% (Default)” then log-off and log-on to take effect and the RS/SLS software will display normally and correctly.
