Again, I got the message saying that "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application...". Before this message popped up, I clicked "Build Data Set", and then click "Yes" on a following popped-up box asking "Do you want to overwrite the run file?" It stopped me from running the simulation and I could only exit the model. I guess that might be related to the process of building files needed for simulation. I will explain what I did starting from the Utilities, and please let me know if there is any step that is missing or not correct.
1)Starting with utilities:
The Utilities consists of 11 items. Some need to be copied/created and then edited on the new file, and some just editing on the selections directly. Here is what I did to each items of Utilities:
Control file: I created a new control file before editing. I created a new name "SAMPLE1", and edited and saved it.
Equipment/Activity: I selected the items that are required for project, say grazing, and edited and saved.
(Here is my confusion, what to do with the other equipment/activities? Will they be recognized and incorporated into my project if I just leave them there? Do I need to delete the other irrelevant equipment/activity?)
Fertilizer: similar to Equipment/activity, do I need to delete the other items that are not related to my project to avoid those items to be incorporated into my project?
Management: After selecting the specific country and region, I chose and edited some items and saved the management file. Do I need to delete the other irrelevant management items?
Owner: I created a new owner file, named it SAMPLE1, and then edited the cells in SAMPLE1 and then saved it.
Pesticide and Plant data: similar to Equipment/Activity, Fertilizer, and Management, do I need to delete all the other irrelevant items?
Soils: Select the country, region, and sub-region. Copied and edited the selected soil types/items. Do I need to delete all other irrelevant items?
Watershed: create a new name for watershed, select the country, add selected weather station and associated information, and saved it. The name of the watershed is "SAMPLE1".
Weather: similar to soil, select the country, region, and local weather station, edit the copied weather file and its associated default weather data, and saved it.
2) after all these have done, I went to the home page and open the new project "SAMPLE1", and clicked "Build the data set", and returned these two box messages (attached).
I looked the RUN file and compared the file with the one that of the default project, and the number of DAT files are far less than the latter. I guess I might have missed some steps. Please help. Thanks.
