SystemModeler 5.0 supports Modelica Standard Library (MSL) Versions 3.1, 3.2.1 and 3.2.2. These libraries are bundled together with SystemModeler’s installation files. We recommend that you use the bundled versions of MSL, because we test and optimize these for SystemModeler.

SystemModeler currently does not support certain MSL libraries, such as the MSL Fluid Library and the MSL Media Library. We hope to support these in a future version of SystemModeler. The SystemModeler documentation lists every supported MSL library.

You can install unsupported libraries; however, to work, they must comply with Modelica Versions 3.1, 3.2.1 or 3.2.2.
