Hi, 

I can't seem to work out how to use proteinortho, i think the error is related with the path but i have no linux background so i am running it on windows, i get the following error:


C:\proteinortho>proteinortho5.pl -project=test C:\proteinortho\test\C.faa C:\pro
teinortho\test\M.faa
Proteinortho with PoFF version 5.11 - An orthology detection tool
******************************************************************

-> Output written to test.proteinortho-graph

All finished.

So can anyone tell me what am i doing wrong. Which path the program can't seem to detect in step 1 as it can very well detect the no. of sequences in the input files. As required, perl, python and blast+ is properly installed as i can get their versions in command prompt. I am just running the test files that come with the program.

Actually, proteinortho is not built for Windows and it can only run perfectly on linux.

If you are on Windows, the Windows Linux subsystem is really good and Proteinortho works very easily on that.

Can confirm that. "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" is a relatively new feature introduced in Windows 10, and works great. https://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/commandline/wsl/install_guide . Despite what many tutorials say, it DOES even support graphical user interfaces, you just have to install an X client for windows (such as e.g. Xming) and have it running in the background while you use the ubuntu shell.
