Dear Amber List members,

Many thanks to all of you for the problem solution advices.
Unfortunately, I failed to apply any variant of the Amber Tools upgrade
14 to 15.
Finally I have deleted the amber14 directory
and reinstalled from scratch both Amber14 and AmberTools15
from compressed files following the amber user manual.
Everything works OK now.

All the best,
