Hi,
  The RCSB PDB changed the structure of their web-based download mechanisms
earlier this summer. This change breaks the ability all of all versions of
VMD that pre-date the change from being able to download directly from
the RCSB web site. The test versions of VMD 1.9.4 that are posted on
the web site have been updated to accomodate the new RCSB web site
structure, and you should be able to use the new test versions and
access web-downloaded PDB structures as before.

Best regards,
  John Stone
