"launch ends with non zero status:1" when generating W+jets at NLO with high W pt

Asked by Isa De Bruyn on 2015-12-09

Hi,

I'm generating the following processes:

define p = p b b~
define j = j b b~

define ell+ = e+ mu+ ta+
define ell- = e- mu- ta-

generate p p > ell+ vl $$ t t~ h [QCD] @0
add process p p > ell+ vl j $$ t t~ h [QCD] @1

add process p p > ell- vl~ $$ t t~ h [QCD] @2
add process p p > ell- vl~ j $$ t t~ h [QCD] @3

and adding a cut on the W pt by adding the charged lepton and the neutrino. This works fine for my first three pt bins (100-250, 250-400, 400-650). However, when I try to generate the last bin, >650, I get the following error:

Does anyone know what causes this? Thanks.
