Downloaded reddcoin-2.0.1-win64-setup.exe from here and also latest bootstrap.dat.xz.

Than ran installation reddcoin file.

After install, I exited the app and copied Wallet.dat and Bootstrap in to …Appdata/Roaming/Reddcoin folder and restart the wallet…

Downloaded and unzipped bootstrap.dat.xz and placed to my …APPDATA/ROAMING/REDDCOIN folder

#7

ok, here I m again…

All work great now…

I just realize that even with bootstrap, the whole synchronization take hours !!!

About 11 hours took me synchronized from bootstrap… Now I have another 26 weeks to synchronized online…

That shouldn’t take longer than 2 hours…

So, this is why :wink:

BTW< don’t be worry, if your Wallet will be not responsive, Just wait few hours…
You can also check DEBUG file under APPDATA/ROAMING/REDDCOIN…
If size of this file will be slowly increasing , your syncing is in process :wink:
