In order for me to get a successful syncing to start, I MADE A BACKUP BY EXPORTING MY WALLET TO MY DESKTOP FROM THE MY WALLET SOFTWARE. Then I uninstalled the software, version 0.4.4 for me might be older for you, and then I deleted the BitShares X folder in C:\Users\Me\AppData\Roaming\BitShares X (I also made a backup of the folder on the desktop, just in case there was an issue)
I then installed the 0.4.5 software, opened it, accepted the agreement, It will take you to the create a new wallet section, I clicked on File, Import wallet and imported the JSON backup from my desktop. The software asks for the password for the wallet that's being restored. I think it also makes a backup of the current wallet, I dont really know.
So now I have my wallet imported and I am syncing back from the start, the reason I did this is because when I first installed 0.4.5 I was getting stuck with the syncing, I don't know if this was because of the fork that someone mentioned in a thread today, or perhaps just a bug with the software, or MOST LIKELY just was my ineptitude and incompetence. LOL. I hope this works, it will take awhile for the wallet to be completely synced up. I'll report back, and hopefully this thread might help someone that was having issues like me. But I imagine most of you are much better with this stuff than me.
