Dear Chimera team,

First of all congratulations for a really nice program and thank you 
very much for making it available to the community! I like it a lot.

I was nevertheless running into a problem when trying to create povray 
pictures on a windows vista PC.  Is there anything i can do about it?

With my best regards,
sincerely yours,
Frank Neese
