How To Update Swing Wallet?


#1

Team, can someone point me to a thread or tech note on how to upgrade my swing wallet to the latest version? I am currently on 0.74.2 and it looks like 0.75.8 is available. I have got enough ZENCash now that I don’t want to cowboy this.

tl;dr I want to RTFM on Swing Wallet update.

Thank you.

Hi @bgml, i’m going to paste a update here on the forum today, on installing and updating the swing wallet, for any OS. I’ll bump this thread when i’m done

Thanks @rocket …one thing to make absolutely sure of is that you’re backing up your wallet.dat file before you do anything.

On Windows: file:///C:/Users/USERNAME/Appdata/Roaming/Zen

On Mac: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Zen

You can just download the new version of the wallet to a new location and start using it… Indeed the most important thing is to keep a backup copy of your wallet.dat file. It may be copied manually when the GUI wallet/zend are not running. A better option is to back it up with the menu option Wallet >> Backup. The wallet.dat must never be lost!

Thanks Vaklinov, great to have you here.

@vaklinov - This worked. Made a backup within the app as well as a manual file copy of the wallet.dat file (with the app NOT running).

Thanks all.

I love where this whole Zen project is going. Keep up the good work!
