Re: Numerical vaule of multinormal distribution


Needs["Statistics`MultinormalDistribution`"]; 
r = {{0.8, 0.1}, {0.1, 0.2}}; 
ndist = MultinormalDistribution[{1, 0.4}, r]; 
CDF[ndist, {-1, 1}]

0.0124156

I would guess that you tried to use to use CDF or MultinormalDistribution before loading the package. Evaluate after starting with a fresh kernel.
