New Windows User having problems with Openbabel

Stuart
Dear OpenBabel community,
I recently installed this software on my computer primarily to prepare small molecules for docking but have been experiencing problems. Even just trying to work through the syntax tutorial with the command:

babel -isdf  'JQ1.sdf' -osmi 'outputfile.smi'

is returning errors. The error messages are:

*** Open Babel Warning  in OpenBabel::OBGlobalDataBase::Init
  Cannot open element.txt defaulting to compiled data.
==============================
*** Open Babel Warning  in OpenBabel::OBGlobalDataBase::Init
  Cannot open aromatic.txt defaulting to compiled data.
==============================
*** Open Babel Warning  in OpenBabel::OBGlobalDataBase::Init
  Cannot open atomtyp.txt defaulting to compiled data.
1 molecule converted
3 warnings 19 audit log messages

I thought there could be a problem with the environment variables but it seems to be okay. If anyone could help me troubleshoot these problems, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks.

Stuart

I am having the same problem,
Im on windows 7, checking cmd echo %BABEL_DIR% shows C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\OpenBabel-2.3.2\data
and the txt files the programm is looking for are there.
Thus i dont know why this is happening!?
At the end it says x molecule converted, but i dont get an output file.

Can someone help and explain to us why this is happening?
