Hi All

My system information is as follows:

OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.16.6706 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-16
Hash: f86a4e411ff7848dea98d7242f43b7774bee8fa0
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a

I was trying to run a tutorial from FreeCAD manual on Raytracing using POVRay. As soon as the POV window opens it displays the error attached in attachment.

Hi @shivaksingh.

This is not related to FreeCAD. It's how POV-Ray for Windows works:
