ExtendSim Analysis RunTime

The Analysis RunTime version is a cost-effective way to access ExtendSim functionality - perform experimentation, optimization, and analysis - without having to purchase the full model developer license. You, your colleagues, and your clients can use it to do any of the following:

Interactively run pre-built models, change settings, view the animation, explore the results, and save changes. (1)

Off-load time-intensive experiments, optimization, and analysis onto secondary computers. (1)

Remotely cause models to run on auxiliary computers and send data back and forth between computers and/or applications. (2)

Use it as a back-end application for a custom user interface that is also running on your computer (Use the ASP version to run simulations over an intranet or the Internet) (2)


1. Models must have been built in a Model Developer Edition of ExtendSim; ie. ExtendSim Pro, ExtendSim DE, or ExtendSim CP.

2. Running models remotely or using ExtendSim as a back-end application requires programming. ExtendSim includes the hooks to allow it to be controlled as an Automation (ActiveX/COM) server. The language you use to program, such as Visual Basic, can use ActiveX/COM to control ExtendSim.


Capabilities and Features of the Analysis RunTime

Run models built in ExtendSim Pro, ExtendSim DE, and ExtendSim CP.

Change settings in the models, save the changes, print, import data, export data, run Optimization, and run Scenario Analysis.

Add records and fields to existing ExtendSim databases or create new databases to manage and store results. Can call COM DLLs and use COM for control of/by other applications. This includes building and/or running models remotely using external programs to script model changes.

Includes RunTime versions of all the libraries shipped with ExtendSim Pro.

Unlimited Event Cycles for Reliability Block Diagramming (RBD) using the Reliability module.

There are no limits to the size of the model, how many runs, how long the runs are, or how long you can use the license (this is not an expiring type of license).


Limitations of the Analysis RunTime

Models must have been built in a Model Developer Edition of ExtendSim (Pro, DE, or CP).

Does not allow the manual building of models or blocks, nor can one manually change the configuration of the model.

Can only read RunTime versions (denoted with the suffix .lbrrt) of ExtendSim libraries. (RunTime versions of ExtendSim Pro libraries are included in the installation.)

Does not include example models or include files.

Running models remotely with the Analysis RunTime will require programming.

Model support comes from the model's developer.


Installing Analysis RunTime

Once you’ve completed your purchase of ExtendSim Analysis RunTime, your invoice will contain 2 items:

• Link to download the Analysis RunTime installer

• A PIN with your Activation Key

Download the Analysis RunTime installer and follow its instructions to install ExtendSim.

Activating Analysis RunTime

When you launch ExtendSim Analysis RunTime, an Activation dialog appears with two options:

Purchase. Selecting this will take you back here - to the ExtendSim Store.

Activate. Select this button to Activate ExtendSim Analysis RunTime. After completing this purchase, enter the Activation Key from your invoice and other required information into the entry fields. Your Analysis RunTime license will automatically be activated and tied to the computer upon which the activation is long as you have an internet connection on that machine. If you don't have internet access, ExtendSim will offer alternatives for activating your license.

System Requirements

These system requirements for ExtendSim apply to Trial, Individual, Academic, Floating, Node-Locked, RunTime, and Student licenses. ASP and OEM license requirements are unique to their intended usage.

Computer and Processor Since simulation is processor-intensive, we recommend that your computer have a powerful central processing unit (CPU). The processor should be as fast as possible and it must be 64-bit.

ExtendSim 10 is multi-threaded and takes advantage of multiple cores when running multiple models at the same time. However, when running a single model (even running it multiple times), it is more important to have cores with a faster processing speed rather than simply having more cores.
Operating System Requirements Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2008 R2.

ExtendSim 10 requires the 64-bit version of whichever operating system you are using.

NOTE: for Windows OS versions prior to 8.1, text in dialogs may overlap if you use anything other than 100% for the display’s Scale and Layout.
Memory 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space 500 MB
Internet Access A connection to the internet is required for automated product activation.

Note: If your computer has no access to the internet or your system blocks ExtendSim from receiving data from the internet, product activation can be accomplished manually.
Browser A current version of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Chrome, or Firefox is required for product updates.
Compatibility Requirements If you connect to JMP or Minitab using the Scenario Manager block or exchange data with ODBC or ADO databases such as Access using the Data Import Export block, those applications as well as the application drivers used to exchange data with the ExtendSim blocks must be 64-bit compatible. This also applies to any custom blocks that connect to external applications using an OLE/COM DLL.

  Any DLL's or Shared Libraries called by ExtendSim must be built for 64-bit execution.
