REQUIRED config change for zcash4win 1.0.12


#23

So another fresh install on win7, waited till 5.5% to edit the conf file, seemed to work, reached 7% then blue screened, strange indeed


#24

It’s going now, we’ll see where it’s at in the morning, maybe any problems with the repair are just associated with your device kind of sucks, so remember, we try and fail and we try and we fail again and we try more and fail a bunch more times but eventually damnit we get it!


#25

Thanks for the update, it was reassuring to see others had the same issue.


#26

The config file modification don’t work for me.
I has added the line and nothing happen.
Still the same error : Daemon is take longer to start… bla, bla, bla…


#27

please post the last 50 or so lines of your debug.log when you start it up


#28

Thanks for the heads up!

I added a line in the file and the wallet still does not work. Did I do something wrong?


#32

@radix42 You rock man! Thanks for releasing this config change also on the ZCash4Win website. I really hope that people start putting a lot more donation to you when sending money via this app, so that you feel worth it to keep it as updated as possible!


#33

Hello. I download the 1.0.12 version and also added the disabledeprecation=1.0.12 line into the zcash.conf file.

the wallet open perfectly and started to sync up, however it has two days on the same percent of block chain sync ( 38.96%) … What I need to do ?

I also reviewed into the zcash folders and found and looking into debug file I saw some errors , Any suggestion ? :

#34

The fix at the start of the thread works for me - thanks very much.


#35

I’ve added “disabledeprecation=1.0.12” to the zcash.conf file. And still get the same error when attempting to execute the deamon manually:

Messages:

  • Error: This version has been deprecated as of block height 264776. You should upgrade to the latest version of Zcash. To
    disable deprecation for this version, set -disabledeprecation=1.0.12

Any ideas?


#36

I really dislike the fact that Zooko thought about Linux but not us windows folks for creating something usable for the avarage joe, this is a massive reason why adoption is so low.


#37

I backed up wallet.bat, uninstalled and deleted the apps data zcash files and reinstalled. Opened gui and closed after first load to have files reappear in apps data folder. Then edited the zcash.conf file to add “disabledeprecation=1.0.12” on the last line and then pasted my wallet.bad file back in the apps data folder. Block chain re-downloaded and eventually fully synced and my transactions are there.

For me at least, it seemed that I needed to edit the zcash.conf file before first thing after install. Nothing else prior worked.


#38

This wallet really sucks. Errors everywhere. I has deleted the database many time and i has started the wallet clean, from the begining. Never work. In my last try, stucked at 39% (May 4th, 2017). No solution. Really disappointed.


#39

Did the developer abandon support for it?


#40

Maybe… at least i haven’t an answer. I hope to resolve the problem in shortly.


#41

After installation, I only have %AppData%\Roaming\Zcash not %AppData%\Zcash. are these two the same?


#42

No, the one in \Roaming\Zcash is the one you want.

For those that have had this working, is it still working for you? I just downloaded this today b/c I needed to make a transfer to/from a private address and couldn’t do it on any of my online wallets. After 8+ hours (300mbps, ryzen 1800x, 1080ti) of syncing the blockchain I’m still at like 80.05% and creeping.

I tried making a couple addresses and sending small amounts of zec to each of them, nothing has appeared in either of them. Can anyone else confirm this doesn’t show the correct amounts or the addresses aren’t functional until the entire block is synced with your wallet?

Honestly, one of the worse adaptations/OS wallet I’ve used to date. Hope the dev is able to at least keep this workaround functioning, much less have something designed for the majority of users. I really don’t want to have to load linux just to have this functionality.
