Slow sync always crashes around block 300,000.

All that is required is for devs to reproduce the crash is to simply run a virgin install on ANY Win 7 machine.

Going back to 0.4.8-a/b is NOT an option because of the hard fork.

Not worried about loss of funds or health of the core network, simply stating that as of this time BTSX bank/exchange is unavailable to Windows users.

Funds maybe safe but unless you runout and buy a Mac your funds are effectively FROZEN

I just got .4.9.a to sync fully in Windows.  Will see if it stays working.

I removed all files except wallet, and sync again and it works now I have 8 connections. No crash since either.

Me too, clean install, brand-new account. I got it to sync all the way, registered my new account, and then started poking around the bitUSD market and before I could place any orders it crashed. Crash report sent, now I'll see if I can get the client going again...

Got it started again, it is rescanning the blockchain (I didn't ask it to; is that normal?), and I ran debug_list_errors and got "no errors."

I'm able to place orders on the exchange. No more crashes yet...

Here's a recipe that ended up working:

1. Uninstall the old version
2. Wipe out old AppData/Roaming/BitShare X directory AFTER you backed up your wallet
3. Start the sync but do NOT import your old wallet until the sync is complete
4. Import your old wallet.

File -> Quit after step 4 hangs indefinitely

Just did this on two machines and it worked. I had to wipe everything, including wallet folder. I didn't import until sync was done, then rescan the blockchain.

Everything is good now!

Don't wipe your AppData\Roaming folder unless you backed up your wallet or copied the privatekey somewhere!

0.4.9a is working here without severe bugs on Win7/64. (first version ever - surprise  8))

However the syncing issues were significantly reduced on linux & win7 if the client is connected via ethernet cable instead of the wifi box. Don`t know if it is a local issue but no big deal to give it a try.
