I meant to have a new release of zcash4win out a while ago, and was (and still am going to) change the name, but have been delayed by illness!
Version 1.0.11 is entering auto-deprecation some time tomorrow when the block height for it gets hit, and I released version 1.0.12 of zcash4win earlier today on https://zcash4win.com
Just go into Add/Remove Programs, uninstall zcash4win, then double click the msi file for 1.0.12 to install the new release
In addition to bumping the zcash version to 1.0.12, it also flips the block explorer it uses to be https://zcashnetwork.info which shows unconfirmed transactions
Also for command line only Windows users, the zipfile for stand alone command line zcash for windows version 1.0.12 is now at https://zcash.dl.mercerweiss.com/zcash-win-v1.0.12.zip
Cheers and sorry again for the delay!
Thank you and hope you get well soon.
Get well soon David!
I’ve just upgraded to 1.0.12, thank you for the heads up!
get well soon! I was just wondering yesterday about a new version and today this. Great!
Awesome, didn’t even have to import the backup or redownload the chain. If your smart screen blocks it, just click more info, then click run anyways
Get Well soon @anon47418038
Any chance we can change the location our blockchain files are saved to? I have a smallish ssd for C: drive but a large empty tb drive for large files.
thanks, all working good with update
I second that, but not only for blockchain files, also for key files or the whole installation.
We could in this way have this files on an secondary and slow inline HDD, encrypt it with BitLocker and let it locked (not decrypted) when not in use in order to have maximum security.
Anyway, thanks @anon47418038 for your great job.
Is installing the new version really as easy as uninstalling the old program and then installing the new one? Do I have to do anything special with my private key or my wallet.dat file?
Hope you get well soon @anon47418038!
I backed it up for safe measure but yea, closed the wallet, Uninstalled, and installed the new one. The smart screen tried to prevent but just click more info, run anyways. It started just like before
hi, how do i see what version of zcash4win i’m currently running?
thank you radix! always very appreciated!
if you installed it earlier than yesterday, you need to update…my
windows laptop’s fan died a half an hour or so ago, or I’d look up how to
If the old installer package is still in your downloads, it’ll say, please excuse the poor photo
Edit- also in the wallet UI -click main, about
Hopefully one day you will include automatic encrypted backups to an external drive for the wallet.dat file
thanks, i was using 1.0.8, uninstall and installed 1.0.12, worked perfectly, all my transactions show up just like before
the stuff that is needed for that in zcash itself is closer to being there!
Hello radix42, I sent 2.5 ZEC from a fully trusted exchange site (have never ever had any issues with them before in any coin transactions) at 20th of dec 22:50 central European time, to my wallet to my address t1LCEnAtw7dySCA9P5uCwhgmDcWQFjoZQDh but it never got transferred according to: http://zcashnetwork.info/address/t1LCEnAtw7dySCA9P5uCwhgmDcWQFjoZQDh
At the transaction moment I had the Win 1.0.11 pc wallet. Couldn’t then start the wallet and after installing the new Win pc wallet 1.0.12 I have not received my 2.5 ZEC! This is ALOT money. Where is this cash?
