Having a minor issue with the Litecoin client.

I recently installed litecoin-windows-client-0.5.0.9 on Windows 7. What I had done to install was unzip the file onto my Win Desktop and
in the folder, double clicked the executable.

Unlike the bitcoin client, it did not create a program entry in Windows /program menu, so I had to make a shortcut to the executable.
Also LItecoin does not appear in my Windows Program Lists, unlike the Bitcoin Client which does.

Now I would like to uninstall Litecoin client from this PC for now, how do I go about that? I have already secured my Litecoin wallet.

I do see the Litecoin installation under the "Roaming" directories, similar to Bitcoin, but I have no clue as to uninstalling it.


Thanks,
Stew
Stewart,
The default Litecoin client is different in this regard, as it does not install itself. In your case, you would delete the Litecoin directory in your %AppData%\Roaming directory (after backing the wallet.dat up), and the files extracted from the "litecoin-windows-client-0.5.0.9.zip" archive. To my knowledge, the client itself does not modify the Windows registry.

Good luck.

Thanks for the heads up on that. Now I know what to do. Guess it makes it a little more portable in that respect.

I am planning on having 2 different Litecoin installations on separate PCs: one PC for personal LTC wallet storage, and the other PC  dedicated to mining LTC.  I'm assuming each Litecoin installation will generate their own separate LTC addresses.  Guess the trick here is to make sure  not to ever mix the 2 Litecoin wallets.

This is correct. If you feel so inclined, you can even run two clients on the same box, just pass datadir -datadir=1 to one, and -datadir=2 to the other.

One thing I have noticed is that minerd hits DNS really hard.
(my DNS server at home is using a full CPU to deal with 3 of them)

Is this true? Anybody can confirm? But why would minerd do it? It should use only one url so there is no reason to continuously do dns requests right?...

Heads up to coblee: You need to integrate net.h and net.cpp from bitcoin 0.5.2 for the program to compile correctly in Linux with the newest version of miniupnp, otherwise you get

Code:
error: too few arguments to function 'UPNPDev* upnpDiscover(int, const char*, const char*, int, int*)'

P2Pool users: An upgrade is required in the next 24 hours in order to continue mining. There is a scheduled protocol change that breaks compatibility with older nodes, but adds support for raising your local difficulty and is more robust against DoS attacks. See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=18313.msg758574#msg758574 . Thanks!

I'd really like to see some mac updates.  The client I had won't work for me after I had to do a time machine re-install.  Can't figure out how to load the app.  It instantly crashes.  Would be nice to run Litecoins on the computer as most of the time it's open for iTunes while I'm at my drafting table at the office.

Also, this might not be the best place to start requesting this, but I think we should have some sort of backup system implemented into the Litecoin app.  Push a button, it exports a file to the DESKTOP ready for USB backup. I was thrilled to see that the Litecoin app had a built in miner (less thrilled that I had to add a minerd), but we REALLY NEED to make this stuff more user friendly.  I know my way around computers, but I find myself having to do a lot of research for some of the smallest things.  Miners might put up with it, but why would anyone else?  Having a noob-friendly system might help Litecoin.  If you look at practicality reasons for Litecoin, it will be the cellphone/ipad kids that would really kick these coins off with small trade systems.

Looks like dead project, as we already seen many times (examples are TBX/FBX/IXC etc.). Sad

What exactly are you working on concerning litecoin?

Merchant acceptance?

Security?

Usability?

I disagree, merchant acceptance can't be ported over from bitcoin by pressing the "import" button.

That is a huge part of the success of a currency. How many people accept it as a medium of exchange.

Great, where is your list of products and services you offer? Maybe once people see what you already have covered they'll be inspired to fill in the gaps...
