Hi all,

When I am trying to open a model from url (file -> open from url) I get the following error message (please see attached image).

I tried to uninstall and clean install COPASI and it did not work. Then I tried to disable my antivirus to check if that was causing the problem, but again I got the same error. Finally, I ran Copasi with administrator privileges and tried again but it did not work.

I did not have any problems openingmodels from url until now. Does anyone else encountered the same problem or knows how to fix it?

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

This is caused by an invalid manifest provided by the BioModels database. We have created a new snapshot of COPASI that works around this issue. You can download the snapshot from here:
