    Name of the app:

    Stanford University


    Download Site:

    Version number displayed in the app:

    App-Icon (in ICO format)



    • This is a scientific tool that simulates folding of proteins (to find cure fir many diseases (like cancer).
      The project is distributing the heavy calculation workload to the community (so users like me help researching).
    • The application has no version information stored (see below)
    • The icon is available in 128 x 128 pixel,

    The application has no version information stored in the EXE file.
    The desktop icon is executing the following command:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\FAHClient\HideConsole.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\FAHClient\FAHClient.exe" --open-web-control

    Folding@home was updated to 7.6.9.
    And again, there is no version number in the EXE file.

    But in the Windows 10 Settings -> Apps -> Apps & Features the correct version info is shown:


    So I searched the Registry and found this key:

    Path:  Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\FAHClient
    Key:   DisplayVersion
    Value: 7.6.9

    So now you are able to get the version information for Folding@home.
