I forgot to add that I had to comment-out the os.path.exists in
NCBIStandaolne.py to get to that step. Equivalently, with this script I get the
'does not exist' message:

   import os
   my_blast_exe =r'"C:/Documents and Settings/patnaik/My
   if not os.path.exists(my_blast_exe):
     print 'cannot find my_blast_exe'
