thanks for your message, I am glad to hear it from you. In my case, there is a
sulfur in the flexible sidechain but there is not any sulfur in the ligand. I
hope you will be able to fix it, so far I fixed it creating a fake file by
copying "" and changing letters,I know that is wrong but at
least I was able to get my first (although wrong) docking.
