Just got a new laptop.

After installing Foldit and the automatic start of the game everything seemed fine.
However after closing the game, I couldn't get it to work.

I removed the installation, installed it in D:\Foldit. Again the same.
As it turned out the Directory of Foldit and everything in it was set on read only.

Changed that and now I am happy Folding on my new Laptop.

So the bug is: Foldit dir after installing is read only on WIN7 64x.

My laptop has win7 64 bit premium.

Ive never had any issues with installing or loading foldit on it.

Odd. Win7 64 also, recently installed 3 versions of client in 3 directories, no troubles...

So maybe it is just how my laptop is configured by Toshiba.
Satelite L750D 17Q.

Thanks for the tip on multiple directories. May prevent track mistakes.
