This adds on to the post viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13749.

I have stripped down the model in viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13749. so it now only consists of 7 equations.

When running the model in the attached workfile I get the error message:

Solve terminated - Solver has stalled: starting values may be too far from a solution

The block structure of the model looks like this:

Number of equations: 7

Number of independent blocks: 2

Number of simultaneous blocks: 1

Number of recursive blocks: 1

Block 1: 1 Recursive Equations

pm92c(7)

Block 2: 6 Simultaneous Equations (2 feedback vars)

bh11(6) bh92s(4) di89(5) bh43(1) bh91s(2) di11(3)

Interestingly If you remove Block 1 from the model Eviews has no problems with solving the model. Block 1 consists of the equation

0 * pM92C + pv92S = (m92u * pM92U + m92c * pM92C + pE92S * e92S + pFT92S * ft92S + pF92S * f92S) / x92S + zlw92S * w92S / 1000

This equation does not depend on any of the variables in Block 2, so why is it suddenly a problem for Eviews to solve the model when this equation is included? (as I showed in viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13749, TROLL solves this model without difficulty). There must be an error somewhere.

I have tried to reduce the model as much as possible so that you can take a look and try to find what is causing this error.
