Fix for Folding@Home (v.7.5.1) Protein Viewer FAHViewer on Windows
With the recent demand in using Folding@Home to combat COVID19, many have noticed the Protein Viewer does not work in Windows with (v7.5.1). This is a temporary fix to get the viewer working using an older version of the FAHViewer from version (v7.4.4)
Bare in mind, the viewer only works for CPU Work Units.
Steps to install:
- Download the
freetype6.dllfiles from version (7.4.4) here:
fah-installer_7.4.4_x86.exe on internet, open
.exe with 7zip to extract the above files. (DO NOT INSTALL OLD VERSION)
b) I have extracted the files and place them in my google drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/12Ya7Sxsv161BFIrsbqgz9bySwKJKkXIH?usp=sharing
- Find local FAHClient (v7.5.1) installed directory. Mine was
C:\Program Files (x86)\FAHClient
- Move and replace the FAHViewer.exe and freetype6.dll into the root of that directory. (
FAHViewer.exewill be asked to be replaced)
- (optional) Untick 'Run as Administrator' in the file properties of FAHViewer.exe
- Wait for a CPU WU to come in and watch in awe!
