Hi all,

Seem to have fixed the problem with Standaloneblast.pm on mswin.
If you make these changes it should work (fingers crossed):

[1]Change the line in sub exists_blast to:

    #old bits
    #return (-e Bio::Root::IO->catfile($BLASTDIR, 'blastall'));

    return (-e $BLASTDIR, 'blastall');

[2] Change the line in sub _runblast to (you probably need to get File::Spec 
for this, since it is not in the standard activeperl dist.):

    #my $commandstring = Bio::Root::IO->catfile($BLASTDIR,$executable) . 

   my $commandstring = File::Spec->catfile($BLASTDIR,$executable) . 

That should do it (assuming that you have installed the blast properly and 
set the environmentals- don't forget BLASTDATADIR).
