Default Bowtie...Error: could not execute Bowtie

Hi,

I am trying to run tophat with the sample data reads_1.fq and reads_2.fq.

I built the bowtie index successfully and moved the generated index files to the Bowtie indexes subdirectory. I run the command

tophat -r 20 test_ref reads_1.fq reads_2.fq

and the output i got is an error showing on console showing:
