Hi John:
Thank you for your reply. I took the NAMD-l and vmd-l as the same list.
I guess that 1.8.7 beta1 would not support a non-English path, so that I will not open a pdb file at my desktop by simply double-clicking since the path has Chinses characters.
Here is the feedback of solvate v1.3 in vmd 1.8.7 beta1, you can see the error complaining "error deleting "combine.pdb": permission denied" on the last line. I only get combine.pdb and combine.psf generated.
