The error message "no executable" indicates that your build didn't
complete. There are probably problems with your compiler or linker

- All Cactus executables are stored in Cactus's "exe" directories.
What does "ls exe" say?
- Did you specify a different name for your configuration while
building? If so, you need to use the --configuration=... option when
submitting the simulation.
- If you use the --debug or --profile flag while building, you also
need to specify it while submitting a simulation, since you'll need to
use the debugging or profiling executable.
