Dear List,

I'm trying to run some of the wind turbine examples provided on the 
mbdyn website, but getting mixed success. I'm using the examples from 
this page:



This is the example of the CART

This example is missing the file naca0012.c81 and won't run without it. 
This file is present in other examples on this page:


so I was able to add it.

MBdyn when I try to run the main input file which is


I just get the following error:

Can anyone suggest what the problem might be with the NREL example?

Best regards,

Richard Crozier
