Re: Cardano Node Crashing on Windows 10 - Daedalus Version 2.4.0 and 2.4.1

When I tried to open Daedalus wallet 2.4.0 Cardano node keeps crashing. Now when I try to start Daedalus wallet 2.4.1. It keeps having the same problem

I already allowed cardano-launcher.exe to freely communicate with the internet

Anyone having the same problem as I do? How did you solve it?

Thank you

Hey @jiangh77

You may want to reinstall Daedalus.

Please use that guide to uninstall and make sure you have your seed to restore your wallet.


The instructions from this web page requires me to get into the Daedalus wallet itself but the Wallet can’t be opened because Cardano node crashes every time I tried to open the wallet

Could I use the instructions on this web page to uninstall Daedalus Wallet. This process doesn’t require me to get into the Wallet itself


Sorry mate! Yes i linked the wrong URL… I meant that link guide. :sweat_smile:

No problem. I will follow the instructions on this web page to uninstall Daedalus Wallet, then restore all the wallets and hopefully it will work

Since I have 2 wallets Byron and Shelley wallets. Could I delete the Byron wallet since we won’t be using Byron wallet any longer?


That should definitly work :slight_smile:

As long as you have transfered your funds from there you can remove them yes.

I have the recovery phrases for both wallets. Do I need to provide the wallet names when I try to recover them? I went through this process before but I can’t remember if I need to provide the wallet names


Nope you just need the seed (recovery phrase).

Thank you so much. I will restore my wallets following the instructions
You answered so many of my questions. I really appreciate that

Thank you
