  1. I’m getting the following installation error: PetraSim Error, Software Licensing Error, INITIALIZATION: DRIVER ERROR FAILED OR BUSY. Is there a fix.
  2. PetraSim Driver Error

    On a few machines, a licensing error occurs when first running PetraSim. The problem you are seeing is related to the licensing software. To correct it, please do the following steps: 1. Go to the installation directory C:\Program Files\PetraSim\License-2_0 2. In this directory, double click on the file SETUPEX 3. Run PetraSim.
  3. I’m getting the following error during installation: Cannot find java.exe - component - Cannot start, because MSVCP71.dll could not be found.
  4. PetraSim DLL Error Message

    You should be able to fix this problem by copying both msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll from c:\program files\petrasim\lib into c:\windows\system32. The next release of PetraSim will correct this installation problem.
  5. Is a place in the TMVOC output files that describes the mass balance error of the model runs?
  6. TMVOC - Mass Balance Output

    There is no easy way to check mass balances. In PetraSim you can output flow data for all connections to a cell (Print Options tab of Edit Cell Data). You would then need to sum these in a spreadsheet. See Plotting->Source/Sink and Cell History Plots in the manual for a detailed explanation of how to do this.
  7. lat long to UTM conversion

    I've posted your questions and comments below inbetween "quotes". My responses are below those. "One of the main difficulties seems to lie in plotting gamma log data between wells. Density Log information plots beautifully." Could this have something to do with the automatic scaling in your dataset? Is it possible that there are null values in the dataset that are not being filtered out? "To officially state my first question, can the program convert P-data into lithologic or stratigraphic data, or do the lithologic and stratigraphic boundaries need to be determined independently by the program user?" RockWorks does not have any tools for converting P-Data to Lithology or Stratigraphy. The lithology data would have to be typed into the program, or into another program such as Excel and then imported into the program. The user can enter Stratigraphy in a similar manner, or the user can visually pick their Stratigraphic contacts using the stratigraphy picker (under the Stratigraphy menu as well). I know that there are some programs out there that have tools for automatically determining lithology types based on P-Data. One that comes to mind is WellCAD. Other users might have other suggestions. "We also have a problem with converting our latitude and longitude coordinate data into the required UTM format. We have followed the instruction manual and the process either results in a response of zero for UTM, no response at all, or it proceeds to change the coordinate data for all of the other wells." We will have to look into this one. At one point, there was a bug with this tool, but it should be fixed if you are using the most recent version of the software (what version of the software are you using?). Also, if you are using the automatic tools for picking your UTM Zone, you might try manual to see if you get better results. The Map --> Adjust tools in the Borehole Manager will attempt to convert Lat/Long data in ALL of the boreholes to UTMS. If you have blank Lat/Long values in some of your boreholes, it would not surprise me if this would corrupt the Easting and Northing information in those boreholes. If you only want to do the conversion for 1 borehole, then you should do the conversion somewhere other than the Borehole Manager. There are some tools in the Geological Utilities for doing this type of conversion (see the tools under the Coords menu).
  8. Dear RockWorks users: I'm looking for comments about RockWorks 2004 from users in the Mining/Aggregates Industry. If anybody has any comments (both positive and negative) or suggestions, I would be grateful if you could send them my way.

  9. 2 D conturing

    Hi Reso: The map that was created by the model does look very strange. When was the last time you updated your program? I recall some problems with contour maps in an older version, although I cannot remember the details. You may be able to fix this problem simply by downloading and reinstalling from: http://www.rockware.com/cgi-bin/downloads/...orks2004^direct Since the tool for creating a thickness grid based on a boolean model is really only meant for use with a boolean model, it makes sense that you are getting strange results when using a model that is not just composed of 1s and 0s. If the update does not fix the problem, I will have better luck trouble shooting if you could send me both your original model file, and your boolean MOD file. You can send this to me directly at [email protected] I hope that this helps! Thanks, Alison Alcott RockWare, Inc.
  10. Cross-section - depth range selection ?

    When creating a log-based diagram in RockWorks2004, there is a "Clip Logs" option that allows you to clip things based on Z Values. If you change this, you also might want to change the elevation for your Border to Automatic. You can do this by going to Perimeter Annotation --> Border --> Elevation Range (choose Automatic).
