 I always just type %appdata% in a windows explorer address bar then click on the bitcoin directory. Maybe you went to the wrong user directory?

Hi Bart,

My client shows 142555 "blocos".

I don't have XP so I can't help you find the Bitcoin folder.

From my experience it does take some time to download.

Yes.

I didn't open the ports, so it's taking a long time.

Some video playing programs create association for .dat files, i think somtimes they are videos, but in this case it's not a video, don't even try opening the file (some video programs have functionality to fix corrupt videos, there is the risk the program will mess up your wallet if you try to open it, just leave it where it is)

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
