I recently tried installing BLAST+ command line (I downloaded the .dmg application and the ncbi-blast-2.2.29+ folder) and tried running a blastn command in terminal, giving the following error:


Error: NCBI C++ Exception:
    "/Users/coremake/release_build/build/PrepareRelease_IntelMAC_JSID_01_62_130.14.18.6_9056__PrepareRelease_IntelMAC_1386704300/c++/compilers/unix/../../src/corelib/ncbiobj.cpp", line 926: Critical: ncbi::CObject::ThrowNullPointerException() - Attempt to access NULL pointer. 


Does anyone have an idea of what this might mean? I'm guessing it's some kind of installation error?

It's not an installation error, it is a runtime error. You will probably have to contact the blast support page directly for the NCBI to look into it
