In re "missing symmetry operations": does it really matter? I have been using such .struct files ever since. After init_lapw, I am always getting an updated file which already contains the symm ops.

Is that really the file? What you sent is not a valid struct file, it is
missing symmetry operations and local rotation matrices. As Fabien said, you
also need to check that there is enough space between the RMTs for the
spheres not to overlap during volume optimisation.

      Dear wien2k users,
                    While running a simulation of a heusler alloy
CoFeTiGe, the GGA calculation was completed successfully. However,
while the same structure file was fed to volume optimization error

The struct file are also sent as attached file herewith this mail,

Any response in this regard will be helpful for us. Thanks in advance.
