ADL: cannot execute binary file

how do you installed AutoDock (and AutoGrid?). Did you use the Ubuntu package manager 
installation or you did it manually?

When you say you are executing the program, do you mean inside AutoDockTools or from the 
command line?

To make a test, try to open a terminal and type in "autogrid4 -v" (without quotes) and see 
if there is any output.

I would suggest you to use the Ubuntu package manager installation method so you are sure 
you are installing a 64 bit version of the program, then make the test on the terminal and 
see if it fixes the problem.
