I assume that you downloaded NAMD binary
for Windows from the web site.
Can I assume that you included path to
NAMD in system variables? Can you check the path in command prompt?
I did not bother to do that.
The NAMD2.exe binary is a small file, so I
copy it with every simulation.
(1) I would copy it to some empty
directory and add input files there.
(2) I would start command prompt (cmd) in
Windows7 and change the current directory to that directory.
(3) Run “DIR” to verify that
NAMD is there.
(4) start simulation, e.g.
NAMD2.EXE +p2 input.conf > output.dat
“p2” indicates the number of
input.conf – your input file
output.dat – show results of
This works for me in Windows XP and Windows
2000 32-bit. However, windows7 has this “UAC” stuff that prevents
much software from running, so power users just run away to Linux….. Do
you get any UAC prompt?

the system variables too. Does anyone know the solution?. Any help will be
