RE: simulation configuration file not accesible - other reasons

Did you specify your configuration file (e.g. run.conf) in command


namd2.exe +p2 run.conf


I usually copy namd2.exe and all input files in the same directory.

You need:


Configuration file (e.g., run.conf)

The files specified in configuration file:

Structure file (*.psf)

Coordinate file (*.pdb)

Parameter file used to make psf (e.g., par_all27_prot_lipid_na.inp)


You need to specify those files in the configuration file.

Hi everybody

I recently installed pre-compiled NAMD on a Windows platform but when
trying to run tutorial sample files I get all the time the above

Besides obviouse problems like path issues are there any other possible
causes for this error ?

I have tryed placing all simulation files in NAMD directory (which is
declared in PATH variable), or used absolute paths but nothing works.

Kind regards
