Re: Upgrade most recent version will not open

What you describe about the program listing showing just remove only sounds right. I'm a bit at a loss since this seems to be happening at startup and I can't reproduce it myself. I did just spin a new beta to change the startup code a bit. A few releases ago I ran into an issue with heap space and ...

Re: Upgrade most recent version will not open

Hmmm. It might be worth giving the latest beta version a try. It has the latest java update embedded in it and although I don't know of any specific launch issues it might have fixed, it's probably worth a try.

Re: Directory and .frp file access for MacOS

Red Head,

Thanks for writing this up. MacOS/Java file permission issues have been a recurring headache for many users so it's good to have this solution so well documented.

Re: Upgrade most recent version will not open

I've had a handful of reports of this happening in the past 6 months and it seems to be some sort of windows update java interaction issue. So far the issue has been corrected for everyone who's reported it by 1) running windows update and installing any updates available, then 2) rebooting the comp...

Re: Best way to track my portfolio vs projection

As you mentioned, inflation makes it hard to track amounts across runs of the planner that are several years apart. You could use a spreadsheet that automatically adjusts amounts for inflation across the years.The columns could have years and each row could be an amount you'd like to track across pl...

Re: Order for Withdrawals

Nick,

Just as an FYI I ended up adding the ability to configure the simulation to withdraw from the tax deferred portfolio first.

The version with this update is now released and can be downloaded here:

Re: Median RMD and Total Income

That's correct that RMDs are not counted in Total Income.

Total income includes any "Annual Retirement Income" amount from the main input page plus any "income" type cash flows entered in the lower table in the additional inputs window (eg SS, Pension, Annuity, Misc Income).

Re: Question regarding the calculation logic

Paul,

I think it'd be easiest if I could have a .frp file to investigate what might be happening.

Would it be possible to sent a file to me at info@flexibleretirementplanner.com with the numbers altered so no personal financial information is included?

Thanks,

Jim

Re: Order for Withdrawals

I've heard this request from a few folks now and if it was easy I'd definitely do it. The GUI changes would be easy, but the trouble is that the simulation code that handles the withdrawals is pretty squirrelly and I'm hesitant to mess with it at this point out of concern I'd introduce bugs that are...
