Has anyone came across the following fortran error within eQUES v3-65 and if so are there any suggestions on how to get around it?

forrtl: info (58): format syntax error at or near (Note: u-values include outside air film)'//73X,'LOCATION OF ORIGIN'/51X,  'GL

The best solution I have found to get around this error is run the model on a 32 bit machine running Windows XP; the 64 bit machine running Windows 7 will result in this error every time which ultimately crashes the program.

This error is related to a compatibility setting within MS Windows 7. To work around this, r-click the short-cut for eQUEST and select properties. Select the compatibility tab, check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", and choose "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" as the compatibility mode, allowing adequate permissions for the program to operate as intended.

@DD. You should accept your own answer so this becomes "the" answer.

Thank you! that fixed the problem - changing the compatibility mode.

How wierd; it worked flawlessly for me for two months, and now it started doing this error...

The trick above did solve it though.
