I had the same problem but trying to use MultiGeneBlast. I found the ncbi.ini in the following location on a laptop running Windows 7Pro: C:\Users\default.SID18883\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows. Removing this file fixed the error.
Similar thing happens with Geneious 7 on Windows 7 64bit. I had had BioEdit on the computer, then changed some file associations, and then the Geneious custom-blast gave an error similar to the above. Simply deleting two copies of NCBI.ini in Windows system directories (61 bytes, appearing to be unchanged for 3 years) let the Geneious blast work.
Is there a space in "BioEdit" or is that from the copy/paste-process?
no, I didn't copy/paste but type by myself.
I had the same problem, and can not find the ncbi.ini file under the bioedit/tables.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Yea I have the same thing popping up. I uninstalled bioedit - no change, reinstalled everything -no change.
Using Windows 7 - it was working fine until something went corrupted. I can't even find the files that its saying is corrupted.
Please help =(
