How to install or upgrade your Maxcoin wallet?

Post by Meconomy153 » Fri Jan 02, 2015 8:19 pm

The process of installing or upgrading of the Maxcoin wallet is easy.

First we have here the instructions on how to install and then the instructions on how to upgrade.

Installing
1. Download the latest wallet from http://www.maxcoin.co.uk/
2. Extract the wallet to a folder of your choice. If you're running Linux, you'll have to build it (instructions are given in the ./doc folder).
3. Run the software. You can confirm that you're on the most recent wallet by checking Help > Debug window and viewing the Information tab.

Upgrading
1. Download the latest wallet.
2. Extract the wallet to a folder of your choice. If you're running Linux, you'll have to build it (instructions are given in the ./doc folder).
3. Make a copy of your wallet.dat folder by copying it into a safe place. The location is Operating System specific, but it resides in the same folder as your maxcoin.conf folder. The README included should have details of where this is.
4. Copy the new files into the location of your existing Maxcoin wallet. Overwrite the old files - your data will be safe (and you just backed it up!).
5. Run the software. You can confirm that you're on the most recent wallet by checking Help > Debug window and viewing the Information tab.
6. Confirm that your coins are still accessible. In the unlikely event that your coins are not accessible, close the wallet and copy your wallet.dat back into it's original location.
