I have written model in conec.flx. Now I want to compile and get dynamic library files dsuse.dll. I put conec.flx in Root directory:PTI/ PSSE/EXAMPLE. And then I open PSS/E Command Prompt and type"compile". And the result is

Your PATH is now set to run PSS-34 programs! C:\Program Files (x86)\PTI\PSSE34\EXAMPLE>compile Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files (x86)\PTI\PSSE34\PSSBIN\", line 58, in <module>psseenvmanager.compile(major, cmpsources, modsources=modsources)

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe4 in position 130: ordinal not in range(128)
If no errors, run "cload4"

I don't know how to deal with it.

In the latest versions of PSS/E it is recommended not to write models in CONEC or CONET.

If the Output Bar shows" Compile models not supplied by PSS/E and create user dll", does it mean that I successfully build a model and add it in .dyr and I can use this model ?

This message means that PSS/E has found a USRMDL in your DYR file and is reminding you that you need to link its DLL to PSS/E (Tools->Model Library->Load Model Library)

The reason is the codec issue in environment manager. Please use 8.1 to compile.
