Re^3: Can I run cc-pVTZ using Firefly v7.1?

Hi,

the error message below is not necessary caused by the file access
permissions/privileges. The command line parsing in Firefly could
seem a bit strange - actually, the reason is that we are still
supporting the "old style" syntax when the list of preexisting  
working directories is passed directly using command line. Hence,
we just stop parsing command line if there are some options or
"options" we cannot interpret as command line switches - and the
rest of command line is interpreted as the list of directories.

E.g.:

 firefly -r -f name_of_output_file  

instead of correct one:

 firefly -r -f -o name_of_output_file  

will cause this error to appear - because the -o switch is missed
and hence name_of_output_file is assumed to be the temporary working
directory.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Alex

>As I am running Windows (7), I checked that my user account has sufficient user priveldges to access files/folder needed.  I am also running the FiCo GUI as an "administrator".  So permissions are likely not the issue.  I cannot find any documentation for the FiCo GUI, and I have tried "/I pathfile.inp -o pathfile.out " as has been previously suggested on this forum (for those interested see, "Re: Troubles with running sequential jobs in Windows machines"), but this is not the remedy, unless I am using this information incorrectly (very possibly).

>Any ideas/tips for this situation would be appreciated.
