the problem with installing PyMol under Windows-XP (see message below) ha=
solved. I tried all kinds of tricks (including reinventing the wheel a nu=
times) but the only effective way to fix the problem was to reinstall the
operating system from scratch, as has also been suggested by Warren.
I am happy to report that PyMol 0.99 runs great on the new DELL Latitude =
with a T2400 Centrino-Duo (1.83 GHz), 1GB RAM and the Intel=AE Graphics =
Accelerator 950. This is indeed a very nice system for the mobile structu=
biologist for a very good price, and it only weighs 2 kg. I am already ru=
number of crystallographic applications (e.g the full CCP4 v6 release for
windows including Coot) alongside my other software applications.

Subject: [PyMOL] problems with pymol installation
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
