RE: [PyMOL] Problem with Installation of PyMOL 0.98 on WinXP Pro SP2

Hi Brian,

I had exactly the same problem while installing this version of Pymol on
WinXP SP2; I could fix this problem by replacing this file from the folder
c:\windows\repair to the folder c:\windows\system32. However if it doesn't
work (or if the file is absent from this repair folder), you should find a
file called autoexec.nt_ in the i386 folder of your installation CD; just
type in a command windows:

expand CD-ROM Drive Letter:\i386\autoexec.nt_

If this does not resolve your issue, visit this link:;en-us;324767
You might find here the answer to your question.

Hope it helps :-)

having trouble with my system.  I'm running Windows XP Professional, and I
installed Service Pack 2, and that didn't solve the problem.  I've noticed
there is no AUTOEXEC.NT file in my System32 folder, which I thought was

I'm hoping that someone out there would know how I can get around this.  In
meantime, I'm going to try installing the Mac version on my powerbook at
Somehow I suspect the installation will go much smoother on that machine...

Thanks in advance,

 is the message I got.

 The installer is unable to locate Python.  Python must be installed before
 PyMOL.  Do you wish to abort?

 I have Python2.3.2 installed, and there was no problem installing pymol_0.93
 with this version of Python.  Anyway, I reinstalled Python again, but it
 doesn't help.

 Does anyone have this problem?
