Dear All,

I want to run NAMD 2.6 on a 4 core parallel windows XP pc for the first
time. I use charmrun exe and type :

./charmrun ../namd2 ++local +p4 conf file > log file

The cpu of computer is going to start but a blank log file is been made.
when I replace ++local with ++verbose and find below text in log file:

Charmrun> adding client 0: "localhost", IP:
Charmrun> adding client 1: "localhost", IP:
Charmrun> adding client 2: "localhost", IP:
Charmrun> adding client 3: "localhost", IP:
Charmrun> Charmrun = motionlab, port = 3456
Charmrun> packing arg: cnt_wb_eq.conf
Charmrun> Starting node program 0 on 'localhost' as C:\Documents and
Settings\motion lab\My Documents\omidvar\LRUNT\lrunt2\4core\namd2.

and also in the cmd window find:
Error 'N' starting remote node program on localhost--
could not contact daemon- is it running?

I checked archives but did not find an exact similar problem, maybe they
are rudimentary errors. but Your valuable hints are highly appreciated.

Thanks All,
Best regards
