This is a Tcl error that may be caused by your timezone not being set, at least from a perusal of google of the errors that crop up from ConvertLocalToUTC. Have you been messing with your system clock? See among other google results, but this isn't an issue with VMD per se, but something having to do with Tcl configuration.

I did MD for a complex consisting of mTOR and a 200 residue protein in solvent and NaCl ions for 10 ns.
Hope you can help. Thank you.
