Documentation page now improved (checked in v13.0)

According to the tutorial Compiler for System Modeling I should be able to verify the installation of a C++ compiler for the system modeling functionality by:


Unfortunately it will not evaluate in Mathematica 11.3.0 for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) (March 7, 2018).

Is this just a problem with my installation and if not, any ideas?

  • $\begingroup$ Since all functions listed in the tutorial will not evaluate it seems that the package is obsolete? This surprises me, as I had thought that everything connected with SystemModel is rather freshly integrated in Version 11.3.0 making the WSMLink package obsolete? $\endgroup$

I just received a response from Wolfram Technical Support telling me that one has to load the WSMLink package for this functionality.



11.3.0 for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) (March 7, 2018)

<|"Success" -> True|>

I have suggested an update to the documentation as the need to (still) load WSMLink does come as a surprise: It is not mentioned anywhere on the main pages for system modeling functionality.

    $\begingroup$ Alternatively, you can evaluate any symbol from the new system modeling functionality, and it should trigger the loading of the SystemModelConfiguration functions. So for example, you can evaluate SystemModel. I'll see to that this documentation page is improved. $\endgroup$
