The following table lists the source files for building a global optimizer. These files are installed in <install-directory>\VSOLVER and <install-directory>\VSDK.

Source file



A C source file for a sample global optimizer. The heart of the optimizer is the vissimRequest() function that you call to obtain the inputs to the cost blocks and to supply values to the outputs of the parameterUnknown blocks. Using vissimRequest(), you can write a wide variety of optimization algorithms. For more information, see the description below.


A definition file that contains linker commands to build a DLL file from object code.


A make file that contains rules for automatically building a DLL file.


A C language header file that contains function prototypes and command definitions for the vissimRequest() call.


Embed import library that describes the address of vissimRequest().
