I'm a grad student in Molecular Biology (at the University of Utah). I've recently started doing CT scans of some mice using the new small animal imaging core. I wanted to use BioImage to process my data but am having trouble opening the .vff files from the Core facility. I get the following error message:

REMARK: 'C:/SCIRun3.0.2/bin/convert/vff2nrrd 'C:/SCIRun3.0.2/bin/AUBREY/20080313ElastinMouseFenestraCT/Chan_elastin_fenestra_March13_optimal.vff' '/tmp//Chan_elastin_fenestra_March13_optimal-3760.nhdr'' failed. Read may not work.
ERROR: Read error on '/tmp//Chan_elastin_fenestra_March13_optimal-3760.nhdr': [nrrd] nrrdLoad: fopen("/tmp//Chan_elastin_fenestra_March13_optimal-3760.nhdr","rb") failed: No such file or directory

ERROR: Please load a nrrd.

How do I get it to convert to .nhdr properly? What am I missing? The same file opens fine in GE Healthcare's Microview program, but that program has less options for manipulation than BioImage. I am running BioImage in Windows XP.
