Hello, I´m trying to model a problem in AMPL with Baron;

But when  I run the model, this is the result

BARON 23.3.11 (2023.03.11):

Could not find "".

Could not find "".

0 iterations, optimal within tolerances.

Objective 0

Any idea why this is happen?

Here is the code of the problem

set pol; #Objetos

set ver =1..4; #Vertices

param I:=3;

set vert{2..I} within ver;

param area {pol}>=0;

#variables

var r >=0;

var X {k in pol, j in ver};

var Y {k in pol, j in ver};

var A {k in pol, l in pol};

var B {l in pol, k in pol};

var Vx {k in pol, j in ver};

var Vy {k in pol, j in ver};

minimize obj: r;

#Objeto

s.t. Rad{k in pol, j in ver}: X[k,j]^2+Y[k,j]<=r^2;

s.t. la1{k in pol, j in 2..I}: ((X[k,j-1]-X[k,j])*(Y[k,j-1]-Y[k,j]))+((X[k,j]-X[k,j+1])*(Y[k,j]-Y[k,j+1]))=0;

s.t. la2{k in pol}: ((X[k,4]-X[k,3])*(Y[k,4]-Y[k,3]))+((X[k,1]-X[k,4])*(Y[k,1]-Y[k,4]))=0;

s.t. are{k in pol}:((X[k,4]-X[k,3])^2 + (Y[k,2]-Y[k,1])^2) * ((X[k,3]-X[k,2]^2) + (Y[k,3]-Y[k,2])^2)==area[k]**2;

Greetings

Given only the information that you have provided, I have not been able to exactly reproduce your error messages. To get more help, you'll need to provide also the data for the model.

If you set any options for BARON, then also include the option string or listing that you used.

I am not seeing any error messages when I execute ModG.run on my computer:

I did find a similar message, when incorrectly setting a local solver for BARON to use:

```ampl: option baron_options 'lsolver=';
ampl: solve;
BARON 23.3.11 (2023.03.11): lsolver=
Cannot find ""; ignoring lsolver.
BARON 23.3.11 (2023.03.11): 0 iterations, optimal within tolerances.
Objective 0```

Here are some things you might check:
• Are you trying to use a subsolver or an options file, which perhaps BARON cannot find?
• I ran my tests on Windows. Are you using a different operating system? Maybe the "Could not find" messages only appear on a certain platform.
• When you run BARON, after the "Could not find" messages, it reports "0 iterations, optimal within tolerances. Objective 0" -- just like on my computer. If you execute "display _varname, _var;" after solving, do you see the same results that I have shown above?

The option of display  _ varname, _var works.
Thanks alot!
Happy Holidays!

Good! For other ways to use the "display" command, see Chapter 12 Display Commands in the AMPL book.
