I installed Bitshares-v0.4.24.exe on my Windows 64-bit laptop.
Selected Run Bitshares at end of install.
Everything seemed to update O.K.
Bitshares shortcut was place on desktop (actually it was a shortcut to my BitsharesX).
When installing Bitshares I didn't notice the install defaulted to BitsharesX directory.
Couple of days later I clicked on shortcut to launch Bitshares. Blocks would not sync.
Finally realized I was trying to run BitshareX.
So I reinstalled Bitshares-v0.4.24.exe to a /Bitshares(not /BitsharesX) directory.
Next I imported my backup wallet.
Transaction scanning progressed to 22% before block syncing began.
As soon as block syncing began, transaction scanning stopped at 22%.
"Last block was synced 3d 1h 44m 22s ago".
Even with 5 network connections no more blocks would sync.
If I try to Quit Bitshares while blocks are trying to sync, program crashes. 'Bitshares (not responding).'
So next I launch Bitshares while disconnected from internet to allow transaction scanning to complete.
After scanning is 100% complete I then reconnect to internet.
Block syncing began but does not progress. Sometimes goes 'Not connected'.
Also if I don't unlock wallet before block syncing begins then password verification stalls.
So I unlock through 'Accounts Go to My Accounts' menu selection.
Now I'm into my accounts window but I can still see opaque image of password box from start-up screen (with the 3 cycling dots).
Anyone having similar problem?
