It was the missing msvcr80.dll. I have the older version msvcr70.dll.
The only idea I have why there was no "dll not found" error is, that
windows tries
to fix the missing dll by falling back to the older version and clustalw
runs into trouble ?

The only special thing is, that I have a Path under user variables AND
under system variables.
But I tried to reproduce this situation on another machine and the emboss
dir was
correctly appended there to the system Path. Curious.
