For electronic embedding you need a TeraChem version that supports external point charge electric fields. You can try mechanical embedding if this fits your needs. This should work also with earlier versions of TeraChem. Check if following test works:

Be aware that I have not extensively tested mechanical embedding.

If you are using the interface to external QM programs, any feedback is appreciated.
