Downloading Wallet


#1

I am trying to Setup the Reddcoin Core Wallet. I download it, then start the Setup, and get the “Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files\Reddcoin\reddcoin-qt.exe”. My choices are Abort, Retry, or Ignore. I’ve tried all of them, and nothing works. I’m running Windows 10 on a 32-bit computer. Please help with this issue, as I’d really like to get started. Thanks!!

  • Uninstall Reddcoin Core.

  • Install again, but with administrator permissions (right click the installer file, select ‘Run as administrator’).

  • Open Reddcoin Core.

Does this solve your issue?

Yes, it worked! I’m now syncing, just 4 years and 50-some weeks behind! Thanks so much!

Good to hear. :).

 

How far is the sync right now?

 

If it is too slow, you can try ‘bootstrapping’ to speed up the syncing. More info: https://wiki.reddcoin.com/Bootstrap_the_Reddcoin_Blockchain. (If you need help, let me know.)

I could just send you the updated blockchain. Let me know.
