The latest release is still not working for me, and the log file is pretty much the same. What can I do?

Gah, I forgot about you.  There should be more information in there this time.  I added a bunch of good debugging output. 

Can you remind me what is wrong?  And send me the log file again, just in case it did catch something new.  Thanks for being so patient.  I'll figure it out!

Hey, for me it isn't working, as soon as I run it it closes, and if I click to see the details of the crash it points to msvcr90.dll , I have it installed and everything.

Ack, I forgot to mention (and it will be at the top of the release notes):

Windows users must uninstall the previous version before installing this new one.  If you've already installed the new version, reinstall/repair it.

Oh wow, that worked, had to fully remove and install. Nice to see someone so dedicated to create the best bitcoin wallet for power users.

PD: I was having problems with the 0.87.2 version, most times when I tried to do a transaction Armory gave a runtime error as soon as I entered the wallet password and hit enter. I tried reinstalling/ deleting mempool, with no improvement. Weird enough, the latest beta (this one) fixed my issue.

A minor buglet:

The time estimate when loading the block chain is completely off.  It takes 2-3 min to load, most of the time it estimates the remaining time to 18 min.  This is undoubtedly because it only uses the number of block files read to make the estimate, but since I upgraded the Satoshi client from 0.7 to 0.8 I have three huge files, and around 15 small ones after that one.

Worse is full-blockchain-download estimator.  Those things are tough to do right!  I had to cap it at 8 hours to avoid it saying "187 years" when the download pauses.  I have all these ideas to improve it, but I have also spent an unfortunate amount of time dealing with it already. 

The 0.7 thing will go away over time, especially with forced upgrades to 0.8.1.  I won't stress too much about it.  Though I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to actually look at the size of those blockfiles...

But even that will become irrelevant when I get the persistent blockchain stuff (coming soon!)

Whoops!  I accidentally changed the makefile, and the Linux installers didn't work on systems with python2.7.  I have repackaged them and posted them to the top post.

Thanks for fixing the problem. However, why would you want to reduce the timeout from 0.01s to 0.001s? Would there be any noticeable difference?

That check happens in the main thread, which means it blocks until it's done.  That means the GUI will be unresponsive for up to 0.01s on each call.  If this function was called every 0.1 seconds, the interface would be jittery and laggy.  It's not called that often, but in the future I might want to... 

So, I want the value as low as possible unless I want to go through the hassle of somehow multithreading it.  Since it's localhost, I figured 0.001s was more than enough time anyway.  And I was right... for all systems except Windows Server 2008, apparently...

Oh well.  I reverted it back to 0.01s, which isn't a problem when it's called at most once-per-second, and I'm sure it will have minimal impact.  I just have to be careful if I want to increase that frequency.

Not sure if it is the problem of all Windows Server 2008 R2 or just my own problem. You may try, let say, reduce it to 0.005s and see if it works on my system

Hey, I think you should fix that!. Where I placed the red circle/ellipse thingy, I think the text should be fully centered (to allow seeing the decimals without wasting the space) instead of starting on the middle like it is currently. What do you think?

Yeh, I guess I could bring it in a little bit.  The goal is to make sure the decimal place is lined up for all rows, so that 112.5 doesn't "look the same" as 1.125.  For that, I need to reserve some space on the left side.  But I agree, there's probably too much there.

I removed it because it's no longer a testing release!  It's now available on the BitcoinArmory download page.

It doesn't work for everyone.  But if it does work for you, it seems to be flawless.  Otherwise it won't even start.  Good luck! Smiley

btw. is it possible to get some data from armory via RPC/API?

I would like to check balances of my paper wallets without blockchain.info via such an API.

I created "armoryd" which is included, but it's extremely minimal.  I was waiting for some of the stability issues to go away before expanding it any more.  But it will run for multiple days at a time before crashing, so it may still be useful for some low-importance activities Smiley  (the crashing is an artifact of the way it tracks the blk*.dat files, which is going away with the upcoming update).
