ROV Software Development Kit Source Codes (SDK-OEM)

SKD-OEM is a technology for large customized projects, where the analytical code base SDK for C# .NET AND C++ as it appears in our RISK SIMULATOR software and ROV Modeller software is available for OEM and SDK deployment into your own proprietary software tools.

Real Options Valuation, Inc.’s analytical code base SDK for C# .NET AND C++ as it appears in our Risk Simulator software and ROV Modeler software are available for OEM and SDK deployment into your own proprietary software tools. The SDK package comes with several dynamic link libraries (DLL) files and a user manual that illustrates the step-by-step integration into another software package. Programming in .NET languages such as Visual Basic, C++ .NET, and J# are similar and can be easily adapted to use our SDK package. We also have an alternative C++ SDK package that mirrors the ROV Modeler, ROV Optimizer, and ROV Valuator software. Please note that you will need a valid license to perform any SDK tasks as well as a contractual agreement to distribute any ROV DLL files. The user manual and technical documentation were written for software developers with basic knowledge of .NET framework development. It is important to note that this manual only provides the important features in the SDK and is not designed to be comprehensive in nature. Nonetheless, completing this manual provides you the necessary background to learn the advanced features in the library which are not covered in this manual. Although advanced, those features that are not covered in this manual will be straight-forward to use. Contact admin@realoptionsvaluation.com if you have questions regarding the SDK or if you need the source code for specific models in our ROV platform.

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.
