Hi Tomek,
Doublecheck that you chose to use "local installation" in the Chimera-Modeller dialog and browse to make sure that is the correct location of the executable.   Is that the same pathname you use to run it via python?

If the calculation runs via web service, you don't need your own copy of Modeller, but you do need to also enter the license key in the dialog, as discussed here:

However, it sounds like you already knew that. I don't really have other ideas of what to check, sorry...
