The first error message indicates that the file "h2-rhf-pvdc.gbw" has a problem or can not be found.

Three possibilities come to mind:
1) the h2... file is missing
2) the h2... file has been corrupted
3) the main ORCA program has been corrupted

If you don't care to dig into the details, the easiest correction is to un-install ORCA, then re-install it.

There is also an ORCA forum at https://orcaforum.kofo.mpg.de/app.php/portal that I can not access with my old browser.

The ORCA program seems to come from the MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUT at https://www.kofo.mpg.de/en/research/services/orca.

(above sites found with:
https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ORCA+program)

Cheers,
Tom

Maybe your browser is actually too new... :smile:

Well-l-l... I tried back to Internet Explorer 6.0 dated 2006 and still No Joy.

Tried a "Ping" to the address and got "Destination Address Unreachable"

Tried a "Ping" without the "orcaforum" that was successful.

Tried connecting without the "orcaforum", got Max-Planck Institut Error 404

Conclusion: Max Planck Institut still exists, but the whale has died. :cry:

So it does still exist!
Hmm... Just tried it with FireFox v28.13.0 dated 2020 and got on the website.

At least that much is settled... curiouser & curiouser.

I got to the forum by clicking the link, chrome, Version 125.0.6422.142
also firefox, V 126.0.1
and edge, latest version
and opera, latest version

So no need for old versions. Fault might be at your end. Or did you type the url in?
