child killed: unknown signal

Dear all
I installed the mpich2-1.4.1p1-win-x86-64, the example cpi.exe can be run correctly. And i put OpenseesSP2.5.0 and main.tcl in the same file, nevertheless,when i double click openseesSP.exe and input "mpiexec -n 4 OpenSeesSP main.tcl" , only return "child killed: unknown signal" as follows:
