Dear autodocktools users

I installed following programs on windows:


After the installation, I used autodocktools 3 or 4 times.

When I start AutoDockTools for the fifth time, I encountered
with following message in python shell windows:
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 21 2008, 13:11:45) [MSC v.1310 32 bit
(Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.

    Personal firewall software may warn about the connection IDLE
    makes to its subprocess using this computer's internal loopback
    interface.  This connection is not visible on any external
    interface and no data is sent to or received from the Internet.

    root = self.setUserPreference.form.root
AttributeError: SetUserPreference instance has no attribute 'form'
hit enter to continue

First time I enconutered with this problem, I uninstalled all of above

Unfortunately, after 4 times using of autodocktools, again, I encontered
the same problem.

Is not my installation manner correct?

What is the reason of this problem?

Is there a problem about python?

Any help will highly appreciated.
