Please be advised that Visual MODFLOW Flex has been designed based on English system. You may try modifying your Region and Language Settings by: selecting “English (United States)” for Format and “United States” for Location; also, as indicated by the message, making sure the symbols are set as the required characters in “Additional settings”.
