WalletShell relies on turtle-service to manage wallet container & rpc communication.

Release installer & packaged archived includes a ready to use turtle-service binary, which is unmodified copy TurtleCoin release archive.

On first launch, WalletShell will try to detect location/path of bundled turtle-service binary, but if it's failed, you can manually set path to the turtle-service binary on the Settings screen.

If you don't trust the bundled turtle-service file, you can compare the checksum (sha256sum) against one from the official release, or simply download and use the binary from official TurtleCoin release, which is available here: Then, make sure to update your turtle-service path setting.
