Error message in saving animations

Hello,

I am trying to make animation using Avogadro 1.1.0 version. When I intend to
’save as .avi’ it gives an error message of ‘could not run povray’. I installed
povray in my laptop, but I don’t understand- how I can set up the PATH of
povray for saving animation. I am using Avogadro in windows 7. I would highly
appreciate- If anyone would help me. Thanks in advance.

best,
Mahbub

This was not as well tested on Windows, I will try to take a look at
this and see if we can ensure it works for the next release. I am not
sure if we exposed a way of changing the POV-Ray path, it has been a
while since I looked at this code.

Thanks for the report.
