I have 2 people who have windows 10 running ubuntu 16.04 through vmware. They installed mothur from debane (I couldn’t get the executable to install correctly on their machines but could on a host computer that’s running windows 7). We’re trying to work with the silva alignment, the windows 10 host are getting this error
