I was trying to hold off a bit before submitting a summary, but it appears that this topics dead. I recieved one response (Daniel P.) which stated that they have the same issue and asked if we have a thickness parameter in our starter model(s). I cannot find a thickness parameter in ours, but I might not be looking in the right place. Daniel stated, "For us, the error log stops if we delete the thickness parameter.... Deleting any other parameter does not seem to stop the error log......"
Thanks Daniel P. If anyone else wants to chime in with a suggestion, feel free.....I'd like to be rid of this fix_params.log.
