I installed my on Windows 7 Foldit and always appears when I start the same error "Unable to write output" I ignore the message and log in normally. But when I load the puzzle, whether it or any other tutorial he returns the following error "Error during initialization: error writing puzzle id."
I installed on two different computers and I use the same account, the error persists in the two no matter what I do.
Sorry my English! Disregard any error!

I got the same problem under windows Vista.
Here is my solution:
Right click on the foldit Folder. Open properties.
Go to Security. Activate full access for your current user.
If you are the Admin user there should be a normal user with the same name.

Hope this will help
