Gridcoin wallet stopped working and started to crash

Recommended Posts



I have set up Gridcoin Wallet ca. 1 week ago (win 10 amd64 english). It worked until 23 of August. Since that, it stopped working: gridcoinresearch.exe displays the following error message on start:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: C:\Program Files (x86)\GridcoinResearch\gridcoinresearch.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Any idea what's wrong with it?

Please delete C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\GridcoinResearch EXECEPT wallet.dat, gridcoinresearch.conf and walletbackups folder if existing.

Then start the wallet and download the blocks (Rebuild Block Chain -> Download Blocks, DO NOT hit Rebuild Block Chain -> Rebuild Block Chain ;) )

If the error persists, have a look into your gridcoinresearch.conf. If it is empty, delete it and restart with inserting your email adress (if you are in solo mining mode and not pool mining)

Thanks, Quez, I did what you suggest!

gridcoinsearch.conf was in place but contained 315 bytes all 00.

Now wallet has started, downloaded blocks, now syncing.

Balance became 0, mag 0, CPID Foundation.

I hope it will recover after its suicide attempt...

After manual edits in its conf file and some time for syncing, the wallet finally started to work again and now all figures are restored. Even received my first POR earnings)

Googling shows that this conf file corruption is a common problem...

Thank you for your help!
