Foldit always displays the following error message upon start-up on my system:
"Unable to write output".
Windows 7 Professional (32 bit), SP1

After this message, the program usually continued regularly, but progress could not be saved.

Sometimes, foldit would show the error message described above after start-up, then show the update-window and crash immediately afterwards.
By now, it shows this pattern only.

I really enjoyed playing, but this bug is stopping me..

Best regards,
