Dear Omer

But you still have SPM in the MATLAB path, correct? The Anatomy Toolbox relies on some of the i/o functions of SPM and hence you need them to be accessible. Having said that, it's still a good idea to start SPM before you use any of the Toolbox scripts from the command line, as this ensures that all global variables are set correctly.

Just to make sure, these coordinates are mm, not voxel coordinates? If you supply voxel coordinates, you shouldn't get anything meaningful.

You are completely right. This is correct.

With this option you tell the program, which coordinate space (standard or anatomical MNI) the coordinates you provided in the textfile are in.

If the coordinates you privided are MNI mm-space, this message basically means, that SPM can't read (at least) one of the probability map files located at /Anatomy/PMaps. So you may want to check whether there has been a problem with unzipping by comparing the files sizes of the images. In addition to that, you might also want to test whether you can open the images using spm_display or by starting the Toolbox GUI and using the "Cytoarchitectonic probabilities at defined MNI coordinates" utility. 

Hope this helps
