ROV Large Scale Risk Optimizer

ROV LSRisk Optimiser is both a standalone tool written in C++ for the purposes of performing large-scale optimization, as well as a set of DLL or dynamic link libraries that can be called from other proprietary software tools (C++ and C#.NET software). LSRisk Optimiser can be used to run hundreds of thousands of decision variables in linear and nonlinear models. Contact us for more information on this Software Development Kit (SDK) and LSRO applications.

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.
