Hey guys,

I've downloaded and ran the app for more than a couple of hours now, at first I had the rescanning or something like that with the logo on it, then it disappeared.
I can see it in task manager that it is busy, but if I click on it no window will appear.
Is it loading the blockchain now? How long it will take to fully download it? (on average)
Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

You should be able to see the GUI, what version of Windows are you using?

Best,
Christopher

hey.

10.
I saw it eventually and the blockchain is downloading VERY slow.
Can I extract it separate from my account, just the blockchain and post it on google drive for others to download it rapidly and only dl from the network, the difference?

thanks!
It got me a few errors and had to restart and it's frustrating.
Wanted to do it myself but it seems like I can't get it to sync already.
And all this to see 1 coin/month probably lol

Is it normal the rescanning part when I lunch the UI take forever (at least more than 2hours)?

and is there a way for see the progress of this state? If I close the Wallet does it's restart from scratch in the next lunch?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

Yes it can take a long time if you are using an old wallet.dat.

Best,

Thanks for confirming. After some search, looks like you are right, but maybe the UI can show some informations instead of freezing.
Because in the debug.log after one full day of rescanning he only go from date=2016-05-16 15:11:52 to date=2016-10-16 04:30:30

So only 5 moth synced in a full day, when I get a 100mbps connection it's looks a bit strange for me. But it's ok I guess you can't really do anything against that.
