One shot 555 timer circuit not simulating

I'm trying to simulate a one shot timer but, with a time-controlled switch in place to act as a user pressing a button, I get "solver returned no data". Is there some requirement of the time controlled switch I'm missing?

Thanks!

Ah, I think I figured it out. The switch needed to have the Vin and ground on the switch side and connect the output of the switch to trigger.
