I am trying to use iQDD to locate microsatellites from a whole plant genome. Whenever I try and use the programme I get the same error message:

Cannot access to folder datatemp1

I am to my knowledge following the instructions to the letter, so I have no idea what is wrong! Any help is appreciated. I have tried it with my own data and the example data with teh same problem. Below is the full details.

Best wishes, Alex

Could you please link to the source code of the programs you are running (homepage of the tool)? It might be that you are using windows and the tools was designed for unix.

It looks as though the program wants to use a directory (folder) named "datatemp1", which I would guess stores temporary files created during the execution of the program.

From the output, I'd guess that this folder is supposed to be located in C:Program FilesiQDD. Either it exists but the program does not have permission to write to it, or it does not exist and you need to create it.

I would also guess that this folder location is defined in one of the Perl scripts, which you could edit to point to a location that does exist and can be written to (such as C:tmp, or whatever the standard system temporary folder is on Windows).

Many tools have problems when the path contains spaces like the "c:Program FilesiQDD" path above.

Hi Alex,

I have recently used iQDD to detect microsatellites in my 454 Contigs and it finally worked very well. However, I had to contact Emese Meglecz to get support. He answered me very quickly and managed to find what was wrong in my data files. Moreover, neilfws is right, iQDD is using a temporary folder which is located at c:QDD_tetetemp I guess that the program is unable to read files in this folder

Here is the link for everyone:

Regards
