Quick and Dirty Guide for Running Folding@Home on Windows Vista

Posted on Saturday, Jul 21 2007 @ 07:57 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
One of PC Apex's Folding@Home gurus has done a bit of research and posted a guide on how to get Folding@Home running correctly on Windows Vista. After following this guide, you can even setup F@H to use the same core install if you dual boot between Vista and XP! Here is a snip from the article:

"In some tests over the last couple of days and some searching of the official Folding@ Home forums, I’ve discovered that anyone who’s wanting to fold on Windows Vista may have some issues with the current versions of the software (the 5.03 Standard Graphical version won’t run through the setup process on most installations of Vista, and you need to adjust some settings to get the 5.04 Console Only version to run fully)."
