Ya, it's re indexing the database. Takes a bit.

Good to know. Thanks for explaining it.


I just upgraded my client to version 0.4.14, & it stays at 'Not connected' for 5 minutes after launch. Than it connects. Is this normal?

I never payed attention to how long the previous version took to connect, so i don't know if this is new behavior or not.

I started a new thread to serve as a howto for others, on the topic of running a delegate node in Windows.

Technical Support / How to run a delegate node in Windows
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:39:48 pm »

I've been talking in another thread about how to set up a delegate node amongst other things, on a VPS running linux.  During that conversation it came up that it might be possible to run a delegate node in Windows. The thread is located here for those interested in having a look:

This is a good thing for me, since I already paid a fee to create my primary BitSharesX account as a delegate account. If I were to have to create a new account to be a delegate & run on the linux box, I will have wasted my money on that delegate fee for my primary account.

Apparently a BitSharesX client is distributed along with the main BitSharesX GUI, as detailed in the following screenshot:
You can't manage the wallet from your windows machine.
Hm, I think I did at one point... (Am I wrong???)
Not sure, but I think liondani was even running a delegate under win. at one point.

Yea, I might be incorrect about some of this stuff.  I know there were issues that dacsunlimited made a post about in regards to having 2 wallets with same key + delegates.   One would have to not be producing blocks.  This might be readily possible, but for a newbie asking how to do it, I think the answer would be "no you can't".   There is just no reason to do this.  Have a delegate account and have your personal account.

The code to run a delegate under windows exists just like it does under linux, but I am not sure the CLI version is even distributed for Windows.  So that means you'd need to compile it since the GUI client is strongly recommended against when running a delegate. 

If Windows CLI is distributed by dacsunlimited, then I suppose there would be no reason to not run a delegate under windows.  I'd need to dig around the install directory and see....

It is there: bitshares_client.exe

I'm starting this thread as a means to a) determine how to run a delegate node in Windows, & b) to server as a reference for other newbies such as myself to learn how to do so themselves.

So to all those who know more about this than I do right now, please reply with answers that will help people run a delegate node in Windows.


Kindest Regards,

Have a delegate account and have your personal account.

Bummer, so I paid for my primary business account to be a delegate for no reason. :-(

Can I transfer the delegate account I have presently to the delegate node, & create a new account on my Windows box for normal use?

I don't want more than 1 account on my Windows client because of the backup restoration issues which exist right now on wallets with more than 1 account in them.

Thanks for your reply, but that isn't what I had in mind. I want to do something that helps the network somehow.

Is there a way to set up a DNS server that people can use to connect to .p2p websites like OpenNIC does for .bit websites? I'd happily leave that running for as long as I'm in business for everyone to use.

I already see software that can resolve .bit domain names, & eventually I'll get around to installing that. It would be nice if my DNS server could resolve .p2p as well.

Anyone know an open source solution that could do both?

A new problem, again on Windows 7 Ultimate.

As soon as Acronis True Image started to run a background backup task, my computer froze completely, the media player started stuttering on the last packet it got from the webradio station I was listening to, and I couldn't move my mouse even. The client was running & going along fine before this happened.

I had to hold the power button & shut down the computer suddenly to escape the condition.

It's the first time ever that the computer has crashed at all. And the only thing that changed today was that I had installed BitShares X in the morning. So of course it's the prime suspect.

I'm running the TrueImage task again, and all is well now- the client is resync'ing at the moment, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

I'll report back later if it happens tomorrow when Acronis starts up again. However I have the feeling it was a random, intermittent event.

I installed the BitShares X client today on Windows 7 Ultimate x86_64. Version 4.1.2.

The bug that presented to me was that when I was finished with the installer & it ran the executable as per the 'Run' checkbox at the end, the Setup.exe couldn't be deleted because it was still running. When I clicked the button in my taskbar, it wouldn't appear on my desktop for me to close it. It wasn't even visible when I minimized my open windows from their _ buttons in the upper right corner.

But as soon as I exited the client, the Setup.exe exited as well.

Seems minor, but not right nevertheless.

What's 'snapshot' mean? Is it live or is it just testnet? How can I buy?

Technical Support / How to put an underused VPS to work
« on: September 10, 2014, 01:22:02 am »

Today I installed the Windows client, registered my account as a delegate, & have some questions as to how I can put an underused VPS I have to work.

I read that it's not advisable to run multiple copies of a wallet file simultaneously, & I'm wondering now how I can go about setting up a delegate node on my VPS using the account I manage from my Windows client.

I'm also not clear on what the difference is between a 'delegate node' & a 'seed node'. Are they one in the same?

Ideally, I'd like to generate revenue from a delegate node using spare cycles on my VPS. But if I can help the network by running a seed node in addition to mining, I'll run both.

Rather than giving up & settling on just buying my BTSX on an exchange, I figured there might be others facing the same situation as I am now, & decided to create this thread in hopes that it will provide concise advice to other newcomers.

Please advise.
