While alingning two sequences with multiseq / sequence alignment, I get
the following message with my laptop (new HP computer, windows 7, VMD
version 1.9.2):

The sequence alignement failed with the following message:
CLUSTAL W (1.83) Multiple Sequence Aligments

Error unknown option
child process exited abnormally

It works great with the same sequences on an other computer in the lab.

I got the same message on my student's computer during labs based on the
use of VMD. I would be happy to fix this.

If anyone knows ....

Mainy thanks,
