I’ve just uploaded my binary build of command-line Zcash v2.0.1 for Windows to:
The sha256 hash of the zipfile is:
You MUST also download the following 3 new parameter files into the directory
%AppData%\ZcashParams\ (which is a hidden folder but you can cut and paste that path into Windows Explorer to move them there after download):
The last one is the big one at just under 700 MB.
Note that this release has only been tested on Windows 10 and Server 2k16, and that some users have had issues with past releases on older versions of Windows.
If you want the nice ASCII/ANSI art, you must launch zcashd.exe in PowerShell with the following command from wherever you unzipped it:
.\zcashd.exe -daemon=0 -showmetrics=1
and as always, backup your
wallet.dat file before running a new release! its in
%AppData%\Zcash\ as is the
debug.log file, which I’ll need the last 20 or so lines of if you have any issues!
I can’t wait for Sapling activation, it is so fast, single digit seconds to do a Sapling send on testnet!

PS: We’re scrambling to get Sapling support done for WinZEC now that Sapling-ready zcashd.exe is out, but its been a rough month: my car is not working, I’m drowning in medical bills, and of course this is the month my son breaks his eye glasses and needs new ones. While we do have some regular ongoing funding now, on top of the above we’re still paying move in costs for our apartment here in Denver, so anything you can spare in $crypto is very much appreciated!
