Upgrading Daedalus or not?

daedalus

#1

Hello everybody,

I have right now instaled the 0.11.1 Daedalus version (windows 64 bits) and It works good.
Is there any risk to keep this version or should I upgrade to avoid any issue.

Thanks to all the community and be safe. Success will occur !

I always upgrade it to new version, because it is logical that new is better and usually safer in case of wallets


#3

your wallet should be auto updating anyway, you are likely on the latest version already

I am having a nightmare with the update. I have had the wallet for months and have never had an issue but this new update won’t sync. I have tried everything posted, nothing has worked to this point. I have been a Cardano champion since February but this update really pisses me off.

after uninstalling did you remove daedalus folder from users/appData/daedalus/roaming? you will need to recover your wallet using your secret phrase if you do… but uninstalling and then removing that folder before re-installing should definitely fix it

latest update has been flawless for me

note: auto update feature wasn’t funcitioning on a specific version of daedalus so a manual install of the latest copy was needed, this happened a few weeks ago iirc… that version also had a syncing issue as well

I have removed everything I could find. Wallet starts at 99.22% and won’t move. After 5 minutes it asks if I want to send a report. I have a Surface Pro 3 with a 250 meg modem. Firewall is off. All the latest updates. Still stuck.

  • verify you have your secret phrase
  • uninstall
  • remove folder c:/users/username/appData/roaming/daedalus, appData is hidden by default so load “file explorer options” and tick show hidden files if you can’t find it
  • reboot and then verify you have space free on c:\ of at least double your ram
  • download latest copy from official website and install
  • use your secret phrase to recover your wallet

Found it. I have the rest covered. Hopefully this works. If not I will try another computer tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

best to try on another computer first so you can verify secret phase

Too late for that. I have my phrase. I opened this wallet on 2/10/18. I am disappointed that it failed now. I know bugs are to be expected but I am used to Cardano always working.

as long as you took care whilst writing your secret phrase you shouldn’t have any problem, i am sure you’ll be fine, let us know if it worked out
