Hi Karsten,
Many thanks for your email (yes, English is the preferred language for
this mailing list - and you are doing fine! :)
That Ipopt can't solve your problem might be because something went wrong
in the compilation, or because your model has some bug or is not
well-posed. I suggest you download a few example problems from the web,
e.g. from Bob Vanderbei's web site at
http://www.sor.princeton.edu/~rvdb/ampl/nlmodels/index.html
such as some Hock and Schittkowski problems at
http://www.sor.princeton.edu/~rvdb/ampl/nlmodels/hs/index.html
and see if Ipopt fails on those as well. If it does, we need to find out
how you compiled Ipopt (e.g. which operating system, which compiler, what
third party components) and what Ipopt options are you using. Otherwise,
if it works, you will have to re-write your model.
Let me know how it goes.
Cheers
Andreas
