RE: Error

Correcting, the command "mono /PathToExecutableFile/SoftwareIdeasModeler.exe".

RE: RE: Error

The newer versions of Software Ideas Modeler are not compatible with Mono due to higher complexity of software. More work is needed to make the software compatible with Mono. Unfortunately, there is no reasonable estimation how long it may take.

Running on Linux

Hi I'm evaluating the Software Ideas Modeler on multiple platforms for our company. On Linux (centos and Ubuntu) when I try to run the exe file, I get a popup with the following error:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement. Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral ...." or one of its dependencies File name: 'System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement. Version=4.0.0. Culture=neutral. ...." at SoftwareIdeasModeler.Program.LoadSettings....."

app just goes puff

this is killing me.

i start up the app, either by clicking on the app or clicking on the .simp file. the logo comes up V11, unregistered copy. and then goes puff. no chance to put it a license key.

i have uninstalled and reinstalled the app a zillion times. the registry entry is gone after uninstall and back after re-install. so it's not anything there.

and it's intermittent. i use the app for a month. everything is cool. a dozen diagrams. at least 100 entities. then puff.

the only thing that has worked in the past is to reinstall on a new virtual machine.
