Re: [OpenBabel-scripting] smi support problem in pybel/openbabel python

(ccing to openbabel-discuss as this mailing list is closed)

I notice that others formats are missing such as Mol file. There are 6
or 7 common formats loaded from formats_common.obf and these are all
missing. It must be that your virus checker or Windows firewall is
blocking that .obf file. I don't understand how the GUI can handle it
correctly though in that case. ??
