ADL: problem in opening autodocktools

leila karami
Dear autodocktools users

I installed following programs on windows:


After the installation, I used autodocktools 3 or 4 times.

When I start AutoDockTools for the fifth time, I encountered
with following message in python shell windows:
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 21 2008, 13:11:45) [MSC v.1310 32 bit
(Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

    root = self.setUserPreference.form.root
AttributeError: SetUserPreference instance has no attribute 'form'
hit enter to continue

First time I enconutered with this problem, I uninstalled all of above

Unfortunately, after 4 times using of autodocktools, again, I encontered
the same problem.

Is not my installation manner correct?

What is the reason of this problem?

Is there a problem about python?

Any help will highly appreciated.

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
"SetUserPreference" appears to be an issue with the workspace folder not being a valid filename or not existing. If you can enter ADT, go to File>Set and set the workspace directory (preferably to something on the root drive to avoid any invalid characters in the pathname). If you cannot enter the program, you must determine the default workspace folder and create it, if necessary.

I would install AutoDock first and then install AutoDockTools (ADT) as it contains the python installer. I would be curious to see if your python installation is incompatible with ADT. I do not believe this is the case but it is worth testing. Please report back if you still have issues or if you manage to resolve the issue.
