The client downloads the GPUs.txt file from here and is not empty. Sounds like Windows 10 is blocking the download, or failing to write the file to disk. Might be some new security setting.

Download a fresh copy of the file manually and see if you can put the file in to the FAHClient Data directory. Then restart the client.
