Can you run ClustalW as a stand alone program?

Is it XP running on a dual processor or single?

I take it you aren't hitting a Firewall block, not that I would think 
ClustalW needs Internet access, but just a thought

I use Win2K Pro, SP2 here and ClustalW runs fine as a stand alone DOS 

Until you posted I hadn't even heard of Bioedit. I will now have a 
closer look.


The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get
sliced from time to time....
