Hi Jérémie,
	We can’t reproduce the problem you’re having here.  I’m going to open a bug report for this, and when you receive mail from the bug report I’d like you to reply to that, attaching your preferences file so that we can troubleshoot the problem.  Your preferences file should be:

C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Application Data\.chimera\preferences

You should make a copy of it so you can send it to us in response to the bug-report mail.  Then, you have two options:  remove the original file — which will nuke all preferences and should allow Chimera to start up, or edit the file and look for a line similar to:

 'Presets': {'Personal preset\ndirectories': [u'/Users/pett/rm']},

and delete that line.  If the edit went well, Chimera should start up and keep the remainder of your preferences intact.
