Hi all,

I am using nwchem as a force engine within a wider MD framework. As such input files for calculating gradients are generated in an automated manner. To speed up convergence I would like to read movec files from a previous step if possible. However there are always occasions where the required file cannot be read or does not exist. Is there a way of overriding the error when this happens and forcing nwchem to generate guess MO's in the usual manner?

My generic input is as follows:

geometry noautoz noautosym nocenter
 C 0.914643436125 0.0226920373433 -0.0494708983624
