you do not want to try and include comments on the line with the 

As you have written it the restart file is called ' abc-1.restart  #  Needs 
to match project name above  ' (which is a legal Linux filename). This file 
does not exist. OLD is the FORTRAN term for already existing.

Remove the comment and it should work OK.
