So, I've upgraded to latest 0.10.2 version of bitcoin core wallet. And it keeps crashing. Brings that fancy error "do you want to send this error to Microsoft?" type deal. It is constantly crashing, crying that GUI stopped responding. At first I thought maybe blocks are corrupt, but no that part was fine. So I've studied MS error report log, read bitcoin-qt debug logs, and it turned out to be this bug in qt itself https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-29716
I've tried to run in 32bit color depth and no crashing. Why am I running in 16bit you may ask? Well I'm running full node, that server is on the rack has nothing connected to it but network, power and USB external drive. Software is windows XP sp3 and wallets (litecoin doesn't crash, might have used newer qt or something) Only reason I'm running it on XP is because I connect to it via RDP. VNC is not an option, XRDP is depressing, or I don't know how to set it up properly despite the docs I've read. Otherwise I'd run it on FreeBSD or Arch. So here is the question: is there a way to run bitcoin wallet as daemon in the background and do all full node thing, wallet stuff and have GUI part connect to it remotely from a different computer? That would be the best way and I wouldn't have to deal with *nix or XP gui

Dude, WTF?

You didn't notice the "daemon" subdirectory and the "bitcoind.exe" there?

How retarded is that?

that was not the question. the question was: can I run that daemon on one computer and GUI portion on the other computer and connect to daemon remotely so I could manage daemon using GUI remotely.  I am aware of console options, but this is not what I'm looking for here

I'm sorry, but you are so flabbergasting, that I don't know what to say.

In effect you've asked "How can I make Microsoft Windows behave like X Windows or Wayland?".

OMG! It has nothing to do with windows! I was asking about bitcoin client. You obviously have no experience with software like that. Some firewalls (sidewinder, watchguard) use that principle. You have GUI client that you install on windows/linux that connects to the firewall itself to configure it, and watch status. Again, it has nothing to do with desktop!  One more time: could I run bitcoin daemon (on freebsd for all that matters ) and use gui portion (on windows/linux/mac/pcbds) to view status or send/receive btc that connects to bitcoin daemon that runs on a separate hardware? It has nothing to do with VNC/RDP/XDMCP. You, sir, obviously do not know the answer otherwise instead of saying

you would just said "no, this is not possible" or "yes, it is possible here is how you do it".

It is not possible with Bitcoin Core. You may be able to find some other software which is a gui that uses the RPC Server from the daemon as its backend.

You are absolutely right, I completely misunderstood your requirements and needs. I could never really understand the people who are afraid of the command prompt.

Since Bitcoin is an open source software it is possible and doable to do what you need. One way is to recompile the Qt on Windows not against the native windowing interface but against the X-windows emulation layer like PTC MKS Toolkit for Enterprise Developers (formerly NuTCRACKER). http://www.mkssoftware.com/ This is probably at most couple of days of work to rebuild it in that configuration. But who's going to use it, besides you?

sigh. It has nothing to do with x emulation layer. Just move along, since you have nothing useful to say

Yes it does, since it's the only tool that can do what you want. Are you even paying attention? What you're trying to do is completely unsupported. Bitcoin-Qt is not designed to work that way, nor can it easily be made to work that way under Windows.

again, has nothing to do with XDMCP. You obviously never dealt with such software. There is software that works sever-client way. Server runs as daemon and gui client runs as native application on windows.  Some environment software is like that. Heck, Metatrades is kind of like that.  Bitcoin daemon could have just dump JSON data, GUI portion could've connect to that port and get the data: show what transactions daemon did, how many BTCs you have in your wallet. Just get stats and such. But obviously it can't do that. And stop telling me about XDMCP, if I wanted it that way, I could've done that already. You obviously never used X-forward via ssh.

0.11 updated QT.  You might see if it fixed the issue.

Please people; this person has a completely reasonable techsupport request.  Yes, I agree-- windows GUI is not the "right" way to do headless, but the software certantly shouldn't be crashing when run in 16 bit color mode!
