i installed Gamess 11 on windows 7 but WebMO couldn't detect the right directory for the program, i tried to edit the directory and file path but it didn't work (probably because i don't know which file is needed).
and when i start any job it fails giving me this raw output "Cannot execute c:/gamess.32/rungms.bat: Inappropriate I/O control operation"
screenshots are attached below for Gamess directory folder and the suggested directory which doesn't work
i hope someone can recognize where the problem isGamess files
Suggested directory and path

the problem was finally solved when i installed "2012-GAMESS-PGI-LINUX-Blas.msi"
it's not easy at all to understand how to install and use WebMO but it's a magnificent program
Thank You

As you found out, GAMESS recent made some MAJOR changes to how they package their Windows version. As such, WebMO is only compatible with these more recent (native Windows) binary version.
