I also expreienced the same problems when I downloaded ISIS. However, I have
discovered the solution. After executing draw12w.exe, you MUST run the file
INSTALL.BAT ** before ** you run SETUP.EXE. The install file will create
various directories, and reactant.skc and all the subsequent .skc files will be
found by the setup program.

Good luck,
