I have Mist 0.9.0 and Geth 1.6.7 running on Windows 8.1 x64.

Why am I get this error message when I open Mist?

enter image description here

What I did:

geth --datadir=$HOME/.rinkeby init C:\projects\rinkeby\rinkeby.json
geth --datadir=$HOME/.rinkeby

In another prompt window

geth --rinkeby attach

And double click on Mist.exe


I faced the same problem. I run mist.exe as administrator. It worked.
