Subject: AMBER: GBSA SA calculation

Hello all,

I am currently trying to extract SA terms from a trajectory which I have stripped of H2O and ions, recreated the proper water/ion free prmtop, and used the following input file and command to run the calculation: - Calculate solvent accessible surface area
  imin = 5,
  gbsa = 2,
  igb = 1,
  ntb = 0,
 surften = 1,
  cut = 99,

sander -O -i -p waterandionfree.prmtop -x trajectorystrippedofH2Oandions.crd -c waterionfreeoriginalcrd.crd -o surface.out

I have tried this procedure with several different trajectories of different systems, and each time I am getting the following error:


 Error in trajectory file
 error in trajene()

Not sure what the problem is - didn't see it in the archive anywhere. Using serial installation of Amber9 on a Linux AMD Opteron Dualcore.
