I have no idea what this means. According to what you specified during 
installtion there should be a start script "emboss" in 
So the starting url would be

It looks like this is the directory just with the binaries and with non 
standard name. So this could cause problems.
Check all the path variables defined in 
and adjust them according to you directory structure of the emboss
