Hello Vladimir,

thanks for your reply. However I am not sure this solves the problem. Of course I can set the environment variables if the data are installed and everything is fine and I get an exception when the data is not there and the variables are not set. My point rather is that geant4 runs hapilly without complaint in a situation when the environment varibables _are_ set, but point to a location that doesn't exist or is not readable, i.e. the data are not there. The simplest situation is a mere typo in the path to the cross section data or - more subtle - a shared disk that holds the data is not available for some technical reason in a distributed environment like the grid. Both can be taken care of by writing a script that excplicitly checks whether cross section data are there - however I think it should be the geant4 physics list (process) that uses cross section data that should complain/warn if no such data is available.

 Regards, Frank.
