You can view the list of demo files with this command:
Then this will show you where they are on your system
system.file("demo", "BivariateSaturated_PathCov.R", package="OpenMx")  "/Users/~/Library/R/2.9/library/OpenMx/demo/BivariateSaturated_PathCov.R"
A named entity is the term used by the OpenMx library for any S4 object that includes the slot "name". Examples of S4 classes in the OpenMx library that create named entities include MxModel, MxMatrix, MxAlgebra, MxObjectiveFunction, and MxData. An equivalent answer to this question would be any S4 object 'foo' such that 'foo@name' will return a value.
If model refers to a MxModel object, then use "?summary(model)" or the more generic "method ? summary('MxModel')". Documentation for the summary function was added in version 0.2.5.
Yes, there is. You can install it using Getbundles
Unfortunately, currently there is not a version of OpenMx that can be installed on a 64-bit windows machine. This is because we don't have a copy of 64-bit NPSOL library compiled for windows. We are working on getting this issue resolved and will provide a Windows 64-bit installation of OpenMx when possible.
