Hi Andrew- Ernest helped me figure out that it was a mismatch between the SNCSEQ def in
configure/RELEASES in the app & local seq trees. The "<SLACstuff>" & xyz/ are just so I
wouldn't bore you with our local /afs paths; sorry about the confusion!
And there really is a gap in the "but SNCSEQ at has", but as that msg goes away when
I fix the RELEASEs, I don't know why that happened...
thanks for your help,

Is the text above *exactly* as reported by the tool, or did you edit the
two "<SLACstuff>" parts? I note that the second line above has
<SLACstuff> in the path to the convertRelease.pl script, and that looks
to be part of the problem. Check whether SNCSEQ (or SLACstuff even) is
found anywhere in your <base>/configure directory. Do you use an
automounter that uses soft links and gives different paths to mounted
There should be a path printed in between the words "but SNCSEQ at" and
"has"; if that path really is empty it could be reading a file from the
root path /configure/RELEASE so have a look there too. Finally, I'm not
sure what will happen if the SNCSEQ installation itself has a definition
for SNCSEQ in its own configure/RELEASE file, so make sure there isn't
one set there.
Let us know what you find...
