Most likely you are receiving the error "G0087 Couldn't open file ' 'C:\Users\zhuzixiang\Desktop\Output_Gap\Literature\English\2012\dataverse_files\output\lik_uc.out'", because the 'output' directory does not exist in the 'dataverse_files' directory. If you create the 'output' folder, the problem should be resolved.

The other less likely problem is that the 'output' folder does exist, but GAUSS does not have write privileges in that directory.
