The pop-up window indicating the STRIDE stopped means that it crashed
for some reason, and this is why VMD isn't getting output from it.
I don't have a particular suggestion for you at this moment, but it might
be useful for me to know more details about your structure such as how large
it is, etc.

Cheers,
