Dear Morad, thank you for reporting this that I already saw and that will be fixed in the next Geant4 patch.

The problem should be that the folder SimulationOutputs/proton/BraggPeak/ is not present in the hadrontherapy directory so that the program cannot move the file DoseDistribution.root. Please create this folder before to run the simulation. Once the directory is created and the file is automatically moved, you can go in the RootScript folder and run the 'conparison.C' script. Of course you can also move by hand the generated .root file.

Hoping this will help your work, Pablo Cirrone
