Subprocesses and cards files not generated in NLO VBF H a j j

Asked by Carolyn Gee on 2020-02-19

Hi MadGraph Experts,

I am trying to generate a NLO sample of p p > h a j j [QCD QED] using MadGraph5 v3_0_1. I was able to get through the generation and output stages without errors, but then during the launch stage many Cards files are missing (run_card.dat, proc_card.dat, param_card.dat). I was able to replace those cards with the default cards generated from the tutorial/pp>hjj process and then editing them to match the p p > h a j j [QCD QED] process, but then run into the issue that it is missing the file "Subprocess/subproc.mg" and all the Subprocess directories. Is there a reason so many files and all the Subprocess directories were missing, and is there a way to get them to generate automatically? The only other change I made was turning off the pole check in the FKS_param.dat file as suggested here: https://answers.launchpad.net/mg5amcnlo/+question/261881

Thanks,
Carolyn

Clearly something went wrong during the output.
Additionally note that LO run_card and NLO run_card are different and can not be interchange.

Cheers,
