Modified XML file doesn't run on Simio


Recommended Posts

I have created a Simio scenario (model) and saved it as an XML file. Then, wrote a script to change values of certain variables in th XML file and created 512 new XML files (Simio Scenarios) for the purpose of experimental design. Yet, these modified XML files do not run in Simio. When I try to open the modified XML file on Simio I got a “Failed to open *.xml. Reason: Unable to verify XML contents” Error message.


How can I run the modified XML file on Simio?

Any help would be appreciated.

Simio does not support editing of the XML files. The XML is verified against changes.


I would suggest looking at the API, as it allows you to change the values of experiments, and run them.


Unfortunately experiments are disabled in evaluation versions, so your code can only be used on licensed computers.


Another method would be to make a custom step... but again... Simio does not allow you to run custom steps in unlicensed versions of Simio.


You also must be careful if you intend to version control the XML.

As James mentioned, it sounds like what you're trying to do is use the functionality of the experimenter without using the experimenter. Have you tried to use the experimenter? Would using the API to control the experimenter suffice?
