I got a bit farther...
PS C:\Program Files\zcash4win\app> .\zcashd.exe -daemon=0 -showmetrics=1
Before starting zcashd, you need to create a configuration file:
It can be completely empty! That indicates you are happy with the default
configuration of zcashd. But requiring a configuration file to start ensures
that zcashd won't accidentally compromise your privacy if there was a default
option you needed to change.
You can look at the example configuration file for suggestions of default
options that you may want to change. It should be in one of these locations,
depending on how you installed Zcash:
- Source code: contrib/debian/examples/zcash.conf
- .deb package: /usr/share/doc/zcash/examples/zcash.conf
PS C:\Program Files\zcash4win\app>"
The problem is that file exists...
