I downloaded Mist-win64-0-8-7.exe and had Mist 0.8.7 running on Windows 64 bit 8.1. Then a few days later I tried opening it and got this message:

Couldn’t connect to node? See the logs for more:

Node type: geth
Network: main
Platform: win32 (Architecture x64)

… flag provided but not defined: -support-dao-fork

I was at a loss. Googling actually didn’t turn up anything useful at all which was even more surprising.

The way I eventually resolved this was to download the latest version (0.8.8) which loaded up correctly and re-sync. No funds were lost things are back to normal again!
