Try re-downloading it. Keep

Try re-downloading it. Keep in mind that it may take quite a while to boot the first time.

My PC is running on Win 8.1

My PC is running on Win 8.1 and I cannot start the game as well. Getting the same error message as mentioned earlier and still could not get it to work after several re-installs.

It *may* help to just leave

It *may* help to just leave it alone while it's booting up. Don't click on anything, and possibly don't run anything else. I know that sometimes I get impatient, and when I click on a loading program window (not even necessarily Foldit) it gives me the error, but if I let it wait then its loads properly. Are you doing this or does it prompt you by itself?

"not responding"

You might get the "not responding" window for a little while, but after a few minutes it should start up!

A windows 8 user was stuck

A windows 8 user was stuck trying to do the tutorials in "selection mode" after reinstalling and changing the options over and over, we could find nothing special about this user except that they were using windows 8.

Seems to be issues

I tried to recruit a friend to play
But under Windows 8 he said he could not get it to work

It never recovered from a "not responding" state while loading

Hopefully this helps:

- The game should start up faster on the initial download.
