Hi Kenward,
That is certainly unexpected.  To try to figure this out, a few 

on those Windows machines,
- does manually entering the command "color byelement"  work on the 
structure(s) in the demo, or on any structures for that matter?
- do other coloring operations work, within or separate from the demo?

I don't think we know of any Chimera bug (yet) that would make 
everything gray. I had a problem once on some oldish Windows computers 
where everything except "wire" representation was really dark - it was 
a problem with the graphics hardware and/or driver.

I could take a look if you want to mail it to me.  I'm not on Windows, 
however.  We could try it on Windows next week.  Sorry about the
