Hi Guys,
I just got the message - new windows version updated to the website for both dropbox and google drive downloads.

Also would someone please (pretty please) test the bootstrap file (download from the website as well) and let me know if it works - I just updated it a week ago and will update again today providing it helps.  (Under download wallet is a link to the bootstrap file)

Finally - we have windows - looking for mac & Linux builds.

Please pm if you are able to assist?

Thanks everyone -

Make sure it is very clear to everyone this is a mandatory wallet upgrade. Also can we have confirmation once we know the exchanges are on the main chain?

just started the wallet with the bootstrap.  
1st thing is a reminder that the 1st run of it  (on Windows 8.1 and maybe 7) will trip windows security and av/firewalls as well.   Suggest posting a reminder to run it 1st time in admin mode.  There will be some that get confused by those warnings.  I have clients that do get confused by those security warnings.  

Will update with further info ....

Can anyone offer a simple explanation to someone with very little knowledge in this area how to get the wallet working again?

If testing confirms (which it looks like it shall),  here is what to do. 1) download new updated wallet and also the bootstrap. 2) backup the wallet (in windows 7 & 8.1 it is in the %appdata/roaming/mintcoin directory). 3) delete everything except mint.conf, wallet and it;s backup. 4) extract the bootstrap to where the wallet is. 5) Go to where the mintcoin-qt file is. Right click and select run as administrator. 
 
The bootstrap file is not needed but will speed up the wallet sync process.

mintcoin.cc points to mintcoin_win_v1.4.zip
Is this correct?

Yes. It's the right wallet - it says 1.4, but it's the correct one.

Not if you want to mint coins.  Old wallets will work for sending and receiving transactions but if you want to mint coins and support the network you need to update to the 1.14 wallet.

Hi Robo,

But old chain can be used, am I right?
I did some test for ZEIT - no problems so far. Looks like a seamless switching.

I downloaded the new client but did not redownload the blockchain. The wallet is minting, block 1051812.

How to check if it is on the right chain?
Close your client/wallet down.
Go to the mintcoin folder where the blockchain and wallet files are.
This is usually located in C drive>users>username>appdata>roaming>Mintcoin
Copy that entire mintcoin folder and save it in a safe location (this is your backup). Now go back to the mintcoin folder and delete it. Once you have deleted it, run the new 1.14 client. It will create a new mintcoin folder and install the blockchain from scratch. It will also create a new wallet.dat file with zero coins. Don't worry about that. Just wait for the wallet to sync. All you have to do is turn your client off again and replace the wallet.dat file in the new mintcoin folder with the wallet.dat file from your backup. Then restart the client/wallet again and once it is done syncing you will have your coins.

There was no fork.  The chain just stopped until the 1.14 wallet was released, then it continued.  Old wallets will not be able to mint new coins, but should function fine otherwise.

Ideally everyone would upgrade to the latest wallet. I know some exchanges have been waiting because a couple wallets back the new wallet required the blockchain to re-download.
