Re: [gembud] GARP crashes using GEMPAK v5.11.4

You should be able to get more information by:

Options -> Logging

That should help narrow the issue. If it's crashing just make sure you
set the logging to a file.

Sounds to me like a missing file or permissions issue. It's as if when
you go to NAM directly Garp can't load whatever it's looking for and
craps out, but when you select GFS Garp loads some parameter file and
can then proceed because it keeps whatever parameters successfully
loaded for the GFS. Whether it's a file or some other configuration I
don't really know, it's just what seems to make some sense based on your
