Bump? After three hours? Have some patience.

It depends upon what OS you are running. Generally speaking, it should be in the same directory as the Darwinia executable, or in the same place that your profile is kept. If you can provide more information about what OS you are trying to run Darwinia under, we may be better able to help you.

The store bought CD comes with an older version of the game. Have you installed the latest patch? It can be found on IV's support page. As you are using Vista, you should be able to go ahead and download 1.5.11.
