I am attempting to utilize the Abaqus-VABS GUI to aid in drawing the cross-sections and preparing VABS input files. I started out by downloading the code and example files from this location -> https://cdmhub.org/resources/939/supportingdocs. First and foremost I tried to run an unmodified example model in accordance with the directions in the Abaqus-VABS Interface Manual Nov 2016. When I tried to run the airfoil_automation example however, I get the following error (see attached figure and/or text below). Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this issue?

Dana, the developer of Abaqus-VABS GUI is occupied with something urgent these days. I am curious why you want use this Abaqus-VABS GUI instead of PreVABS?
