Hi all,

How do you set initial values in a maximum likelihood
program? 

I am trying to run a ML program using lf and d0 but with ML
search the computer can't find values to solve my program
using ml search and I get the message "could not find
feasible values" does that mean that my program is wrong?
When I run ml check it stops after test 2 and gives back the
same error message. Can I solve this by specifying inital
values? 

Thanks, 
Alejandro
