Can Fold-It be run on Vista x64?

I have tried installing it with UAC off, running it as admin, running it in XP compatibility mode, and can't get it to work.

UAC off? hm...

tried it in a completely another directory? Not somewhere were Vista want to put something?
I know that some mods only work this way.

Re: Vista x64?

I got it fixed and working on my Vista x64 computer.

I had to:

1) Move the folder with the application directly under Drive C. Apparently the application doesn't like the default path of "C:\Program Files (x86)" I think the game programmers need to look into this. It's probably the blank space causing the issue.

2) Go to the executable itself (foldit.exe), and in Vista x64, right click it and go to properties, then go to the Compatibility tab and turn on the "Disable desktop composition".
