RE: AMBER: RED III execution problem

Thanks for the reply, RED is now working. I also have optimization output from Spartan (Windows) and would like to use them with RED to create libraries for Amber. I have looked at babel/openbabel, but writing to gamess output is not supported. Is there a way to use Spartan output with RED, or is there a better way to create the Amber libraries from the Spartan output.

Thanks,

Ben
