The following input does what I think you want. You can choose the standard Molden format, or Molpro's xml-based format, according to your taste.

Or you may be asking which orbitals are actually used in the printed CI wavefunction. In the example given, these are the state-averaged orbitals, but you can control this using the NATORB subcommand of MCSCF (see http://www.molpro.net/info/current/doc/manual/node236.html)
