Folding on two computers with the same ID and passkey possible?

Yes...

Close the viewer. 10053 is an error when the viewer is stuck on the demo loop. Viewer doesn't work on the most recent Windows version of F@H so you may as well just close it unless you like looking at that demo loop.

It works on linux and MacOS...

It is possible to get it to work on Windows by using the older versions fahviewer.exe and files but it's honestly not that interesting and it tanks your folding performance so it's not recommended to run it while folding anyway.

 

But if you really want to get it to work
Download the older 7.4.4 client

Extract the files from the installer with 7zip

copy the FahViewer.exe and Freetype.dll (or Freetype6.dll?) in to C:\Program Files (x86)\FAHClient folder replacing the older files.

Restart the client

 

There's also a github that has the fixed fahviewer files which I've found to be more stable.

Yes, it's possible to use the same username & Passkey on multiple computers. Just put the same username, team ID, and passkey in the identity settings.
