Problem with SAPT calculation

Hello, all. My SAPT calculation is wrong, but I don’t know how to modify it. I hope you can help and give me some suggestions. Thank you.
molecule dimer {
0 1
( * Cartesian coordinates for the first molecule)

-1 1
( * Cartesian coordinates for the first molecule)
set {
basis aug-cc-pVTZ
guess sad
scf_type DF
freeze_core True


Fatal Error: PSIO Error
Error occurred in file: /scratch/psilocaluser/conda-builds/psi4-multiout_1563933640427/work/psi4/src/psi4/libpsio/ on line: 128
The most recent 5 function calls were:

psi::PSIO::rw(unsigned long, char*, psi::psio_address, unsigned long, int)
psi::PSIO::write_entry(unsigned long, char const*, char*, unsigned long)

Printing out the relevant lines from the Psithon → Python processed input file:
core.set_global_option(“BASIS”, “aug-cc-pVTZ”)
core.set_global_option(“GUESS”, “sad”)
core.set_global_option(“SCF_TYPE”, “DF”)
core.set_global_option(“FREEZE_CORE”, “True”)
→ energy(‘sapt2+(3)dmp2’)

How many atoms and how many basis functions for the dimer?

Hello friend,
I am very happy to receive your reply. I found that the problem was caused by the molecular construction of ultraedit. It has been solved now. Thank you very much.
