Quick correction: I was using the x86 version, because I want compatibility. It seems like the 86-bit version is not updated. Halite.exe still is v0.4.3

Well, I still have that problem. The GUI doesn't load on my PC: Windows 8.1 x64

Good news- the bug in Halite version seems to have been fixed. Halite portable (x64) works fine for me.

@siegfried & @webfork
I confirm that on Windows 8 x64 Halite doesn't load GUI. However the previous version (Halite works fine.

siegfried: Confirmed on Win7x64 using both x86 and x64 distros. Will try reaching out to the developer.

portable x64 here (windows 8.1 64bit): It doesn't work to me, no windows gui showed (there's the halite.exe process only in win task manager), nothing.
