Default SOAPddenovo v1.05 error-Cannot open output_prefix.kmerFreq.


We are using SOAPdenovov1.05 on paired end 36bp Illumina reads with this command:
[s0977659@ris-lx03 bin]$ ./SOAPdenovo-31mer all -p 4 -s /LBEP/Laura/JUNE_2012/14_june_2012/SOAPdenovo_140612/Inputs/AB10.config -o AB10

The Error I get is:
Cannot open AB10.kmerFreq. Now exit to system...

Prior to this output looks ok:
Version 1.05: released on July 29th, 2010

pregraph -s /LBEP/Laura/JUNE_2012/14_june_2012/SOAPdenovo_140612/Inputs/AB10b.config -p 4 -o AB10
In /LBEP/Laura/JUNE_2012/14_june_2012/SOAPdenovo_140612/Inputs/AB10b.config, 1 libs, max seq len 100, max name len 256

#the longest is 233637bp,scaffold N50 is 65253 bp, scaffold N90 is 19282 bp

I am new to SOAPdenvo, but has anyone had similar problems?

Default You don't have admin rights or something

Hi Laura

I actually had this same problem today!
It's because I did not have administrator's rights to the folder that I wanted to save my output (-o) file in!
As soon as I changed my output file location, and tried again, the run worked just fine.

Hope this helps!
Have fun
