What works

The graphical user interface works. After some tweaking it is possible to load, create, modify and safe petrinets and use the simulation functions.

The steps required to get CPN Tools working are:

  • During the installation, also install the linux simulation server.
  • Open a terminal and do the following: ­
    cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Prog­ram Files/CPN Tools/cpnsim
    chmod +x cpnmld.x86-linux run.x86-linux
    ./cpnmld.x86-linux -d 2098 ./run.x86-linux &
    ­­tail -F cpnmld.log
  • Do not close the terminal
  • Run CPN Tools (using wine)
  • Under Options > Simulator Process
    • Fill the checkbox before remote
    • Host: localhost
    • Port: 2098
    • Runtime: ./
    • Image path: cpn.ML.x86-linux
    • Restart CPN Tools to safe these settings.
  • It is now safe to load or create new petrinets. When you do,­ new output is generated in the terminal of step 2.
  • You can ignore the simulator error: 'exception raised while setting paths'. The simulation functions should work.

What does not

The windows build of the simulator does not work. However, the program comes with a linux build of the simulator which can be used.
