I am running VMD-1.9.4 on a Mac running 10.11.6 (OS X - El Cap) and am having an issue with the software crashing.

Below is my workflow:

  * Launch VMD
  * File > New Molecule
  * Filename (select .prmtop file)
     * Load as AMBER7 Parm
  * Filename (select MD calculation .rst file)
     * Load as AMBER7 Restart

At the Load of the .rst file is where the crash occurs. I have tried loading multiple variations of different .prmtop and .rst files but all result in the crash.

Any help or assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.
