Subject: AMBER: Problem: Flag "SOLVENT_POINTERS" not found in PARM file

I had the ERROR message like this: Flag "SOLVENT_POINTERS" not found in PARM file when I am using AMBER8 to run MD under constant pressure.

What I did is the following:
Build a AOT reverse micelle (RM) system and put water and sodium ions inside the RM, solvent this unit with isooctane, then saveamberparm the prmtop and inpcrd file. Do minimization, run MD under constant volumn to heat the system up, then run MD under constant pressure and the problem popup.
