To whomever can help,

I've been trying to run a file using ASPECT and I've included the error
message I get below.  I am wondering if the .hashdist used in instalation
is causing the problem or if it's something else.  Let me know what kind of
information I can provide for to help.  I am an undergraduate student at UC
Davis.  Thank you in advance for your help.
