HUSH Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.68.6 for Windows
Installing the HUSH Desktop GUI Wallet on Windows
Download the Wallet ZIP file HUSH_Wallet_0.68.6_Windows_release.zip.
Security check: You may decide to run a virus scan on it, before proceeding... In addition using a tool such as http://quickhash-gui.org/ you may calculate the its SHA256 checksum. The result should be:
If the resulting checksum is not
something is wrong and you should discard the downloaded wallet!
- Unzip the Wallet ZIP file HUSH_Wallet_0.68.6_Windows_release.zip in some directory that it will run from.
Running the HUSH Desktop GUI Wallet on Windows
Double click on
HUSHSwingWalletUI.exe. On first run (only) the wallet will download the cryptographic keys
(900MB or so). In case of problems logs are written in
%LOCALAPPDATA%\HUSHSwingWalletUI\ for diagnostics.
Important: The HUSH Node 1.0.9 uses as a data directory
%APPDATA%\Hush for its wallet and block-chain.
If you have a previous version (1.0.8 or lower), the wallet and block-chain for the older version resided in
%APPDATA%\Zdash. They will thus not be automatically used for the new version but may be copied manually
for this. It is sufficient to rename (or copy) the old directory
%APPDATA%\Hush for it
to be used by the new version.
Important: Some users have experienced network peer discovery issues after running the
HUSH Desktop GUI Wallet binary release 0.68.6 for Windows. The wallet would start but
would have zero network connections for up to 30-40 minutes until the first connection is found. This happens
only on the first run of the wallet (typically). The problem lies not in the wallet itself but in some
(temporary) issues with the DNS seeding nodes in the HUSH network. As of 22 June 2017 HUSH core developers are
aware of this and will address the issue but it might take a few days. Until then one manual workaround, for
users who experience this and do not wish to wait for extended time periods, is to edit the HUSH configuration
%APPDATA%\Hush\hush.conf and add the addresses of nodes to connect to without automatic discovery. For
instance the following list of nodes may be added, to avoid the problem (copy the block of text and paste it
into the file
addnode=18.104.22.168 addnode=22.214.171.124 addnode=126.96.36.199 addnode=188.8.131.52 addnode=184.108.40.206 addnode=220.127.116.11 addnode=18.104.22.168 addnode=22.214.171.124 addnode=126.96.36.199 addnode=188.8.131.52 addnode=184.108.40.206 addnode=220.127.116.11 addnode=18.104.22.168 addnode=22.214.171.124 addnode=126.96.36.199 addnode=188.8.131.52 addnode=184.108.40.206 addnode=220.127.116.11 addnode=18.104.22.168 addnode=22.214.171.124 addnode=126.96.36.199 addnode=188.8.131.52 addnode=184.108.40.206 addnode=220.127.116.11 addnode=18.104.22.168
The Windows environment variable
%APPDATA% typically points to
so if your Windows user-name is Joe, the full directory may be C:\Users\Joe\AppData\Roaming\Hush. To find out
%APPDATA% is, open a Windows explorer and type
%APPDATA% and press Enter in its file location box...
