When I load Foldit on Win XP, the program exit. I hope you can help me, as I am unable to play at the moment. Here are the last few lines of the log file:

Are you able to play any of the other Puzzles?

Try Short Beginner Puzzle (<15): T-cell Lymphoma
and let us know if you get the same error.

I opened the(<15): T-cell Lymphoma puzzle successfully. No problems there. I'll try Marie's advice and let you know what happens. Thanks!

Try to install the game in another place that/programm files like c:/foldit

then copy without replacing all files from from /foldit in programm files to the new directory.

OK, I got into the puzzle, by placing the program at another location, as Marie suggested. It seems to be sorted out now. Thank you for your help on this! It's much appreciated!
