I have been doing windows builds of multicoin-exp, but have not heard of anyone using them so don't keep it up to date unless I get a request usually.

http://www.wuala.com/jbw9/pub/Bitcoin/multicoin/MultiCoin-exp/src/bitcoin.exe/ is actually mutlicoin, however I am pretty sure this version only works with the config file that would have been compatible with .62 and needs to be updated for .63 now that we have passed block 19200.  I can update it if anyone wants it to be.

Thanks. I don't know twobits myself, can some recognized/trusted forum members vouch for him?

I vouch. He's provided namecoin binaries for a while that work well.

Thanks. Let's say I trust you guys enough to try this (although more assurances are always nice, since I'm not sure I've seen doublec as well, as don't feel like going over his post history right now). twobits - can you provide an updated build?

All right,  though multicoin  is a bit of a pain to set up for the most people that are the ones that want a gui.

You need to grab the config file, and rename it bitcoin.conf  and have that in the datadir  ,  may want to make a bat file and use -datadir= to do it.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. The reason I'm insisting on a GUI this time, is because I already lost a tiny amount of money on a wallet that somehow wouldn't restore right. Or perhaps I mishandled it in the first place, and it didn't have any NMC to begin with ... I don't know anymore. I'll post here if I have any questions.

Call me a noob, but running this simply didn't do anything. No error message or nothing. Should I put the config file somewhere specific? %APPDATA%\Multicoin ?

No...  it  needs to be started from the command line to work as namecoin.   

What I have is a  structure like

multicoin.exe/

                /data/namecoin/bitcoin.conf    <--this is the config file I liked to above renamed.


then you launch it

>multicoind -datadir=data/namecoin/bitcoin.conf

you could set up bat files to do it.


It  is not really meant as an end user tool, but for people that want to mess with different block chains.

As I wrote https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=24209.msg459926#msg459926 when I first was learning it, it is not really an end user client, though I have some ideas for code changes that could make it more so.  I really need more hours in a day lately!

Are you familiar with the cli/bat files?   if so you should be able to get it going set up like above,  if not, it probably is not yet the tool for you.

I am familiar with them, just not sure I have the time to play around with that right now.
I had really hoped for some more widespread adoption of NameCoin. Say what you will about some of the alt chains, but they at least provide decent tools, even to Windows users, out of the box.

Wake me when this is the case for NameCoin, and thanks for your efforts thus far.

Oooh, where might these namecoin binaries be? Are they a GUI wallet? I've looked everywhere...
