  If you could forward the configuration file you are running then may be we
go through it and see if there is any small mistake that you are
overlooking, Mention the X, Y and Z dimension of your system as well.

getting the following error: error parsing config file
I don't know what that means or how to address it. I've copied the log file

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
