Re^3: state-averaged restricted active space SCF

Thanks to excellent (as always) advice from Alex, I managed to run this calculation.
The "cryptic" error message shown before means that the memory requirements of this job would overflow 32-bit integers. The trick was to switch to a less memory-demanding implementation (GAMESS-US style):
$TRANS DIRTRF=.T. $END
But the job still didn't fit in the memory. So I changed the basis set to cc-pVDZ and reduced the number of threads from 28 to 18 (thereby increasing available memory per thread). This is the final input file for a 4-state-averaged MCSCF with 8 electrons in 29 orbitals and single excitations only (corresponding to step B in the Truhlar paper):
