I have been playing foldit on my Windows7 computer since 2010.
Yesterday, one foldit session crashed so I exited my other sessions and restarted my computer.
Now, foldit will not launch properly.
On the first launch, a window opened but it just remains blank until I close it out. All subsequent attempts then first give a pop-up alert: The game has previously not started correctly. If this problem persists, please install the latest version. Clicking OK on that pop-up then allows a foldit window to open but it remains blank until I close it out.
I have tried re-installing foldit into new locations, uninstalling foldit / re-installing, re-installing as administrator, running as administrator, disabling the firewall (but that was never needed before). Nothing works as all I get is the blank window.
The log.txt file in the foldit folder only contains this text:
Can't open options file options.txt. (..\..\..\mini\src\interactive\application\Application.cc:77)
The application event log contains this entry:
The program Foldit.exe version 0.0.0.0 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get the game to relaunch? Or are my foldit playing days over for good?
