Hi Aymen,

  In my tests the red-cyan stereo works fine on PDB models and maps.  
Perhaps you are using a color near red or cyan for the PDB model.  That 
will make it work exceedingly poorly.  In general, the red-cyan stereo 
only works well for monochrome (gray) images.

  I guess the Windows Vista message about the Side View not working 
means your graphics driver or graphics card is not capable of making 
that second 3-d graphics window.  That almost never happens.  Perhaps 
you can install a graphics driver that will make it work.  Greg Couch in 
our lab knows more about this and can advise you.
