[email protected] broke on me

Recommended Posts

been trying to figure this out for a few days, computer restarted. I double clicked the icon on the desktop (like normal) to open [email protected], nothing happens. Navigate to the folding install folder, I can get the program running (command line only) but when I tried to fold while at work today, no points were being submitted, even though I was completing WUs. i've reinstalled [email protected] 7.6.2 three times now, im about to just reformat and reinstall windows...lol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

 

side note: when trying to submit this thread, I have to have a tag (it only gives two options)

I had this happen a few weeks back on Windows 10, had to completely remove FAH including APPDATA folder, reboot and reinstall, was a little annoying

by appdata, did you mean, when  going through the uninstaller and clicking the box, i've tried that :S

No, I had to actually go in to my Appdata and delete the entire FAHClient folder after uninstalling.

 

I think mine happened after a GPU graphics reinstall but I can't remember.

nothing pertaining to folding in the three default user folders (mine, default, public)

reformat, it is. Thanks for the help anyways, axipher, I was also just looking for an excuse for my annual restart.... :p

 

Windows 10 reinstalls pretty fast as long as you download all the drivers and don't give it an internet connection during setup until you install all your device drivers including chipset.

 

Then Ninite makes it easy to install most of the standard apps again.

This sounds similar to an issue I had a couple months ago with [email protected] and I was planning on an upcoming W10 reinstall anyways. Only other issue I remember having was [email protected] was causing my PC to randomly restart, so running it while I was at work was a bit useless. Just didn't fold on that PC for a week or two and redid the OS since I tried similar stuff to you with no success.

I've had a random issue with [email protected] the past few days. After booting a system the client starts in the background, but instead of opening the already running application it somehow tries to start the advanced control again. It shows "connecting" and does not continue. If I don't double click the [email protected] app but instead navigate to the hidden icons I see the "sleeping" [email protected] icon, right click and "open advanced control" and it works like it should.
