FAQ: error message 2066

FAQ: I built Water in Gauss View and tried to run Gaussian 03; I submitted file, it started to do the calculation, and it froze and said link died. I tried again and now I get an error message: “error message 2066 can’t create file temp input file ‘GXX.INP'”

  1. The Gaussian application needs to be configured before you will be able to use it. Run Gaussian 03 and go to “File” menu
  2. Navigate to “Preferences”.
  3. “Scratch path”, “Output Path”, “Input Path” should be changed and should be pointing to your “W” drive, as following. Please make sure to create a folder on your “W” drive before pointing Paths to it.
  4. Click “Ok” and execute your calculations again.
