    1. What is Gepasi?
    2. Why is Gepasi free, when even academic books are sold?
  2. Installation / unistallation
    1. I cannot install Gepasi...
    2. When I uninstalled Gepasi I was told that not all components had been removed...
    3. Can I install Gepasi 3 in Windows 3.1x with Win32s?
  3. User interface
    1. I have one metabolite that is no longer used in my model. How can I delete it?
    2. Reloading the current file does not work!
    3. I read in the help file about a "plot page" but I cannot see it. How do I access this page?
  4. Simulation engine
    1. Some models take an excessive long time to execute. What is wrong?
    2. I want all the data to be output on one single file but the program crashes. What should I do?
    3. Is there a way of processing a series of simulations without having to manually load and start each one?

General

1.1 What is Gepasi?

1.2 Why is Gepasi free, when even academic books are sold?


Installation / uninstallation

2.1 I cannot install Gepasi. When I try to run the program setup.exe an error message is displayed that says an illegal instruction was executed and the program closes. What is wrong?

2.2 I uninstalled Gepasi but at the end a message was printed saying that not all components had been removed. What are these components and what can I do to remove them?

2.3 Can I install Gepasi 3 in Windows 3.1x with Win32s?


User interface

3.1 I have defined the reactions of a model but later on I found I had mistyped one of the reactants. I corrected it but now I have one extra metabolite which I do not want. How can I delete it?

3.2 Open a gepasi file, change something (say delete some outputs on the task menu), then change your mind and re-open the same file. First, one is not asked whether to save the changed file, and second, nothing actually changes: the new file is not loaded at all.

3.3 I read in the help hile about a "plot page" but I cannot see such a page in Gepasi. How do I access this page?


Simulation engine

4.1 Some models take an excessive long time to execute while others that are of similar complexity, run much faster. What is wrong?

4.2 I want all the data to be output on one single file but the program crashes. What should I do?

4.3 Is there a way of processing a series of simulations without having to manually load and start each one?
