Hi Francois,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I am not an expert in coding so I
will not be able to help you implementing PC-GAMESS features in R.E.D III.
I think Dr. Alex A. Granovsky
( will be the best
person to contact for this matter.

However, since PC-GAMESS does not work with R.E.D II I switched to GAMESS
(linux-pc version FEB 22 2006). The program works fine when used alone.
One I use it with R.E.D II I have the following:
 * Selected QM Software *

                     * 1 Conformation(s) selected *

         No three atom based re-orientation found in the PDB file
     Re-orientation will be done according to the GAMESS Algorithm!

                 No connectivity information found in the PDB file
            The Tripos Mol2 file(s) will NOT be generated !

                         * Software checking *
           rungms [ OK ]
           gamess.00.x [ OK ]
           resp [ OK ]

   The structure/conformation(s) is/are being optimized ... [ FAILED ]
        See the file "JOB1-gam1.log"

        Press Enter to exit

The file 'JOB1-gam1.log' is not being created therefore its not possible
to check the content of the error message. Could you (or anybody) please
tell me what to do to get rid of this problem and make R.E.D II works with
this version of GAMESS? Thanks
