Bivariate model with binomial variable (0,1) and (2)

Hi All,

I am having difficulty to run a bivariate model with a
binomial (0,1) and normally distributed variable. Any
suggestions will be greatly appreciated. 

Please have a look and make suggestions if you can. This is
the second time I am asking for help and nobody has
answered yet.

I keep getting error messages as blow:

1) jwe0019i-u The program was terminated abnormally with
Invalid Binomial/Threshold proportion

At the end of the .asr file:
2) Warning: The LogL value is unsuitable for comparing GLM
models Assuming binomial data expressed as counts

I checked the ASREML Mailing archives for similar problems
and Dr.Arthur Gilmour made some suggestions to one of the

I have tried several suggestions to overcome the problem:
1- Increased the memory allocation in the command line(-S4)
2-Run Univariate first for each trait and got initial
variances and
placed them in the model.
3-In the error variance matrix, I used !GPF qualifier to
fixed the error variance for the binomial variable. None
did help.

I included the Command file for your review.
Here is some information about the data and the system I am
