Hello Estrella,

We have a visiting scholar from Spain, and the 1.5.3rc Chimera works on 
his Spanish Windows 7 64-bit laptop.  So my guess is that your system is 
missing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 runtime libraries that Chimera 
needs to work.  They are available from Microsoft at 

Please let me know if installing the runtime libraries fixes the problem 
for you or not,
