the error in structure optimiztion of excited states by molcas

This is my out file about the error:

 Convergence not reached yet!
 The predicted energy change is too large:   -30039.019249745212
 This can't be right!
 This job will be terminated.

And at the last of the out file,it says

--- Stop Module:  slapaf at Thu Feb 23 07:56:28 2017 /rc= _INTERNAL_ERROR_ ---
Non-zero return code - check program input/output
--- Module auto spent 6 days and 6 hours

Re: the error in structure optimiztion of excited states by molcas

What is that? No basis set?

That kind of CIRoot (non-equal weights) is usually asking for trouble too.

Re: the error in structure optimiztion of excited states by molcas

I just noticed that you replied to this thread by clicking "Report" instead o "Quote" or using the reply box. This is what you wrote:

Because the basis set is too long,so I just leave it out.And if I set the CIRoot at equal weight, the excited state I want will disappear.

Have you checked that the root you want remains stable? As you try to optimize it, it will be stabilized, and it may become a lower root, and then everything's messed up.
