Hoping somebody knows the answer to a quick question:
With which legacy versions of MatLab/SimuLink is the FAST V7 SimuLink 64bit S Function (as distributed on NWTC website) compatible? Without recompiling, that is.
We have some old legacy models (originally run in FAST6 using very old versions of 32bit MatLab) that we have picked up and we are unable to run them using the FAST V7 SimuLink 64bit S Function in versions of MatLab that include 2011b, 2013b, and 2016a. We have tried running the sample files included with FAST V7 with the same versions of MatLab and we are also finding that they will not run in our installations. In each case, we receive the error about obtaining sizes from MEX S-function, which we understand to typically be a classic sign of version incompatibility.
If there are other issues that can result in this error, I would welcome the feedback.
Yes, I know we could recompile, but we are hoping to avoid that complication if possible.
Yes, we can convert to FAST V8. Again, we are hoping to avoid that complication right now.
BTW, we had similar issues with running the FAST V8 SimuLink sample with the 64bit S Function (as distributed on NWTC website) in MatLab 2016a, although we were able to get it to run just fine in 2013b without recompiling. Hence, we took this error to primarily be due to the version incompatibility.
Any insights anyone has are very much welcome and appreciated.
