  It's possible that you've found a bug in either AutoIMD itself, or
in the Windows version of NAMD. Can you try running NAMD manually on
your Windows machine and see if it starts up and runs a simple simulation ok?
Do you get a similar "abnormal program termination" message if you run
NAMD by itself, or only when run from the AutoIMD plugin?
There's a simple IMD test system you can load and run manually if you
aren't already familiar with NAMD.

On both I got the same error: "Attempt to connnect to the simulation timed out!" and the information in the log file: "abnormal program termination" (see attached file). It can not be a fault of my input files (I took the tutorial files from the nanotube tutorial). Maybe I should precise some additional paths in plugin's files?
