Dear colleagues,
I am trying to install pymol v0.99 on a new laptop running windows XP but the installer keeps giving an error message that my specified path does not exist. This is quite striking to me because the extracted files do indeed have the path that the installer is complaining about! So the path does exist!  Upon restarting the computer hoping to solve the problem with path recognition, I get a system error about the ntvdm.exe emulator. Is this a related problem? Would that also be a sign that I should reinstall the operating system from scratch? I just got the computer and this may be the most appropriate time to do it.

Thanks in advance for any input
