I was wondering if AxPyMOL could handle a .pse file that loaded two pdb structures in powerpoint.

I've simply created a .pse file by fetching 2bmv and 2hhb.  Then I loaded this onto my PC laptop while in powerpoint.  Other slides in the same presentation with a single pdb file works fine.  However, this .pse file causes AxPyMOL to crash.

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.
