Updating to new wallet...
« on: August 28, 2014, 07:49:05 PM »

Could someone outline exactly how to update to a new wallet version please...or provide a 'how to' guide link...?..Maybe my current slow Syncing experience is caused by running the 0.4.7.0 version..?
Thanks......

Download the new version, install it by replacing the old version, open the new version....

It is slow, that's normal. If you want to accelerate the syncing, you need to add some nodes mannually. Just like those in this thread:

Hopefully next version will fix the no connection problem.

Cleaner install although  it takes more time :

1. File -> Export Wallet (just in case)
2- Uninstall your BitsahresX
3. Go to C:\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\BitShares X and delete all except your folder wallet.
4. Install the new version(0.4.9.-a) it will take a while to sync again.

make a copy of the wallet folder found at C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\BitShares X\wallets, assuming you're on Windows.  put the copy on your desktop or somewhere safe.

once you have a copy of the wallet folder, just run the setup program.  4.08 worked fine for me. fixed all my sync issues.

i didn't feel the need to uninstall the previous version or to delete anything from the AppData\Roaming\BitShares X directory, and it worked just fine. 

many ways to skin this cat.  all of them should get the job done.

Thanks stanno...

Unfortunately I'm in a slightly worse position now because I've just updated to the latest wallet version 0.4.9.0 and I have no connection/s at all....my fund balence is also not showing but I guess that's due to the no connection issue.
Not sure what to do now.....is it possible to go back to earlier versions at all....or advisable ..?...

you can go here http://dacsunlimited.com/binaries/wallet/  and get any version you like.

i'm thinking my current sync issues may be due to my need to upgrade from 4.8 to 4.9.  waiting for an answer to my sync question before i go that route.

that's weird.  you must have something else going on with your computer.   I just upgraded to the latest version, 4.9, and my wallet synced right up.  no problems at all.

No the old version are not working because of the hard fork. You should install version 0.4.9-a this is the one working. Also I suggest to do a clean installation too : https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=7849.msg103955#msg103955

i figured that was the issue, since my wallet stopped updating at an even numbered block.  340800.  some random network issue or whatever would have a very small chance of stopping the sync at such an even number.

i just installed over the top, and it's working just fine.  maybe i'll do a clean install on the next upgrade...

No if it is working no need for clean install :) 
That suggestion was for Zen1 cause he seems to still have trouble. In my case only the clean install fixed everything.

Yep. I get no connection. Uninstall. Delete data file. Re download. Now when it is downloading blockchain, it crashes and I can't re-open. The only difference now is that it asks me to send a report. This was my home PC. On the VPS, I installed and get 8 connections for about ten seconds, the blockchain has been stuck at 14 days old with no connections now for 4 hours. Quit, restart, still 8 connections and the day ticker in the bottom right corner goes in revers until it stops and says no connections. I am giving up. Was at work all day trying to juggle this and get home to the same problems.
