6.6. Standard Engine Used, but "Check Engine" Says OK for Accelerated

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x, Professional and Industrial Editions

As advised in For Faster Simulations, I'm trying to use the accelerated engine for simulation, but when I click Start Simulation the status line in Excel tells me that @RISK is using the standard engine.

I clicked Project » Project Settings » Simulation » Check Engine, and the result was "Project OK for accelerated simulation." Why is @RISK still using the standard engine?

Click Simulation Settings » View. You probably have Demo Mode selected, or Show Excel Recalculations. Updating the display to show every recalculation is typically not done when you want the fastest simulations.

Turn off those settings, and @RISK will use the accelerated engine. (The other settings, including Update Windows During Simulation, do not prevent @RISK from using the accelerated engine.)
