Help Couenne error when specifying non-linear warehouse location problem

#1

I’m trying to specify a warehouse location problem that allows the optimizer to pick the warehouse locations rather than provide candidate locations. The problem is (1) when trying to register a function and solve the problem I receive the error “key :calcDist not found” (this has been commented out), and when specifying the problem without registering a function I receive the error “Error” with no further message to debug. Anyone have any thoughts on where I have gone wrong?

You cannot use user-defined functions with any solvers connected by AmplNLWriter. We could certainly use a better error message explaining this.

Miles I appreciate the heads up on AmplNLWriter . Any thoughts on the second specification of the problem which does not use user defined functions?
