It is present in the same folder but still unable to open and showing the following error:

  1. Make sure you have named your protein file as “protein.pdbqt” else change it in the config file accordingly.
  2. Check if this file is present in the same directory from where you are performing virtual screening.
  3. If this file is not there, then either provide a full path for this file or place this file in the same directory.
  4. Make sure it has permissions. If not, then type the following command:
$ sudo chmod +x protein.pdbqt

In case, if the issue still persists, then try recreating pdbqt file for protein.
