Cross-Platform Considerations
Libraries
Libraries
Libraries are located in the ExtendSim9\Libraries folder, but can be in subfolders within that folder. Libraries needed by a model can also be at the model file location.
Windows: ExtendSim supports library file names up to 64 characters. Library names must end in the “.LIX” extension.
Mac OS: Library names can be up to 31 characters long and usually end in “Lib”, although this is not required.
Models
For Windows, ExtendSim supports long file names. All Windows models must end in the “.MOX” extension. Mac OS model names can be up to 31 characters.
