Coastal Protection Nearshore Wave and Erosion module

since we could not run the Profile Generator module with the sample Vancouver datasets
you provided, we decided to feed the Nearshore Wave and Erosion module with a cross-shore
profile we generated with the ArcMap10 function 3DAnalyst (Interpolate line). The profile
obtained from your claybark_dem is a txt file with the following format:

[X coord] [Z coord]
0 6.563
19.995 0.574
39.991 -1
59.986 -1

Then we used this txt profile in the Nearshore Wave and Erosion module with the
ErosionProtection_WCVI_BarkSound.xls you provided, and for the other required numeric
text string data we used the number suggested in the InVEST_3.0.1_Documentation.pdf (i.e.
Wave Height value = ?5?, Wave Period value = ?10?, etc. etc.).

Running the module we obtained the following message:

It seems the module ran properly (?Succeeded at??) but if we check the folder
O:\Alessandra\invest there is no folder named "OutputWaveModel_prova".
Do you have any advice to solve the problem?
