using IMSL fortran library

using IMSL fortran library

I am trying to solve a system of first order differential algebraic equations using the subroutine DASPG/DDASPG in IMSL library. To understand how this subroutine works, I copied the example code in the IMSL.PDF file and run the code in the window develop studio. The example is a simple Van der Pol equation and I was hoping to get the exact same results as in the example. But instead, I was prompted with error message: TERMINAL ERROR 7 from DD3SPG, which means the iteration matrix is singular. While the example code produced very smooth results. I wonder why the same exact code cannot reproduce the same results as the example did? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

I copied the example into a console project and tried to compile and run it. There are several questions to answer before succeeding to run the example: Use "USE IMSL"? Comment "EXTERNAL DASPG, UMACH"? Have "IMSL.LIB" in Project | Settings | Link? Etc. It is also strange that I could compile and run the example in Release mode but I got 4 compiling errors in Debug mode telling "Error: The type of the actual argument differs from the type of the dummy argument. [T] (and 3 other arguments)
Anyway, the results I got in Release mode were 26.00000, 1.46302, -0.24098, -0.24220, -0.09071, which is not exactly the same as the results in the example documentation. (W2K-Pro SP2, PIII, CVF 6.6)
