v7 won't restart after being turned off

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I've been folding for about 3 weeks, using v7 client since it makes everything easy and neat, but every time I turn off the client and try to restart I get this error

The local client exited unexpectedly, please check for errors in the log file in the following directory:

C:\\Program Files (x86)\\FAHData

Restart the client?


Also, the client up top says " Client: Local Offline(in a blue box) Inactive. "

My slots for folding are empty, and the only thing I can click on is the congif, but it only shows the connection config. Everything else is greyed out so I have no idea how to connect and start folding again. This has happened to me 3 times now, First time I turned off my computer at night and the next day when I tried to reopen to fold. The second was I left it on 24/7 and I guess window updates at 3am caused my comp to restart, and third is today, where it froze and I had to force it closed(just when i finished a 3day wu too...). Each time to solve the problem I uninstalled and reinstalled. If i reinstall then everything works fine, but I don't want to do this every time something happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure it's not hanging in Taskmanager. Look for the service. It should be named something related to F@H
