Hi,
I upgraded my wallet from v12 to v14. But I am having an issue: monero-wallet-gui.exe does not work. It only appears in Task Manager for a second, and then immediately exits. No log file is created so I am at a loss what happens. Previous version worked OK.
I downloaded the archive from official website (not the installer) and replaced all files in my Monero folder as usual. Since then, monero-wallet-gui.exe did not work.
I then ran monerod.exe, which worked OK. At first it upgraded blockchain database from version 1 to version 2, then 3, then 4 (if I remember correctly). It is synchronizing blocks as I write this post. So my blockchain db is not corrupt. I tried running the GUI wallet while monerod.exe is running, same result. And turned off Avast antivirus temporarily, same result.
Can anyone advise what to do, please?

Do you have active AV (AntiVirus) software on that system?
Yes and Monero folder is under exclusions. And disabling AV makes no difference. Previous version (v12) worked without problems.

Can you try launching via the start-low-graphics-mode.bat batch file that is included?
That was one of the first things I tried but forgot to mention... same result: the gui exe only appears in task manager and then immediately quits, with no log created.

I have a feeling your AV is still deleting necessary files (i.e. files required in order for the GUI to run properly). Can you perhaps try these steps:

1. Reboot to ensure all Monero related processes are closed.

2. Apply this guide -> https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/10798/my-antivirus-av-software-blocks-quarantines-the-monero-gui-wallet-is-there

3. Note that step 2. implies that you have to re-extract the .zip file.

4. Start monero-wallet-gui.exe again. Does it launch properly now?
That made me try one more thing: back up all Monero folder contents into a 7z file, delete all files and folders from inside Monero folder, and extract downloaded Monero wallet files anew (so that there are no leftovers from older versions). Monero GUI wallet is now running as it should. But I don't know why, it launches the daemon (monerod.exe) in a separate command line window. Previously it ran only in the background, not displaying a separate window. Probably that has been changed, but is no big issue, just noticing.

That is due to a bug in the build system and the issue is kind of difficult to debug. However, I expect it to be fixed once deterministic builds are available for the GUI (we're working with TheCharlatan to get deterministic builds going for the GUI).

After reading Meks posts i checked my monerod log files and it seems his problem and mine are similar in some things. I made a fresh setup (again) and built everything up from zero. So there is no old data left.
Same result at 65%- some SSL error
After starting monerod again, again and again i checked the monerod logs again: The log file from monerod stops updating after the first run and the following error!
Similar to what Mek said...

Btw. I am running monerod on a seperate linux mashine only used for monero. Nothing else then ubuntu and monero installed.

For people who are still over worrying about Monero, please spend a little minutes to read the article, that I took from McAfee's tweet.
https://coinpedia.org/news/john-mcafee-says-privacy-coins-will-be-the-next-big-thing/
Monero will be here, will rally, and will win. Despite of all uncomfortable things happened recent months, Monero is a strong coin and privacy coins will be a hot trend in crypto. That is surely right that Monero, a leader of Privacy coins, will not die easily.  Wink

He invested in those and then tried to shill them. Smiley But he is probably right, at least for fungible/private coins, don't know about "medical" field. What is that exactly? A currency which brings health and medication on blockchain? Huh
Anyway, interesting timing of that post http://prntscr.com/o9flfi (spoiler: big fat red candle)

Sorry for veering off topic, just a heads-up in case any of you old CryptoNote goats are still holding some Boolberry from way back in the day: they can be swapped 1:1 to Zano (Zoidberg and teams' new project) for the next 27 or so days.

https://medium.com/@zano_project/coinswap-launch-b76e78192366

BBR will be maintained but Zano will be the main focus for development.

Cheers

Release of Exa Wallet — mobile wallet with multisignatures support:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/bwase5/release_of_exa_wallet_mobile_wallet_with/

First multisignature wallet if I am not mistaken. Did anyone try it already?
Hello I see it's for iOs and Android.
But it's only a mobile wallet? There is no desktop version?


Copied from the source:

— Mobile only? Any plans for a desktop app?

At this point, we're working on a fork of monero-wallet-gui to support the same workflow of multisignature wallets.
Great but no desktop version as of now so...

They plan to release a desktop version in the foreseeable future.
Do you know when exactly? There is an ETA? In short in 2020 or in 2025?

They did not provide an ETA, but I am reasonably certain 2020 is way more likely than 2025 :-P

Did you send to an integrated address? Because those are displayed differently on the history page.

Can you try these steps:

1. Go to this tool -> https://xmr.llcoins.net/addresstests.html

2. Put the original address in box 8. Public Address: 

3. Click Check Address

4. Check box 15. Standard XMR:

5. Does it match the address displayed in the GUI?

Same problem, but this time the error happened at 9% sync.  Huh
Seems to be a SSL problem...

Could you perhaps open a new issue on the Monero Github repository?

https://github.com/monero-project/monero/issues/new

I will have to create an account first. But u will do so when i have the time to.

Thanks.

Just to give a little update:

I did what you asked for and created an issue in github. I gave them all the information i was asked for and it seems that this is a problem that only happens to Armv7 devices.
But thats all i can say, as i did not really understand what happened Cheesy.
My coding skills are far below that level... Cheesy

But hopefully this is solved soon. I will wait a little bit now before i re-try...

Hello all!

Got a pretty noob and URGENT question with the payment id. I have sent a monero(exchange wallet) to my other monero wallet. And the exchange wallet requires a payment ID so i simply generated a random one from the mymonero.com web GUI. Now my Monero coins have yet to arrive for over an hour now.

Question is, is it ok to generate a random Monero payment ID when sending to another wallet? As I have read and understood this is a an ID simply to track the transfer of the coins. And the coins will still transfer with our without the ID or whatever string you input on the payment ID to the proper address.

Also how do you track Monero blocks? Because all I have from my exchange is the payment ID and no transaction blocks? And to be honest I am very worried about losing my coins!

Thanks for the enlightenment.

As a general rule, payment IDs are not necessary for transactions to go through, and if I'm not mistaken they will be deprecated in the next major version. Exchanges used to require them when receiving coins, so they know which user to credit with those coins. If you are sending the coins to a wallet you operate, you probably don't need a payment ID (unless you expect to receive the exact same amount from other sources too).
That being said, if the exchange's interface has a 'payment ID' field and they made it mandatory, there's nothing you can do about that.
If the exchange has indeed sent the coins, they could probably give you more information on the transaction, like in which block it was included. I would wait a bit and then contact their support.

Thank you very very much Chicken_76 for clearing that out. Unfortunately the payment ID was mandatory. So I am safe? With inputting anything there?

I am crazy concerned because this is the 2nd exchange that has some issues sending out to an external wallet, my first exchange is still transfering the coins for some unknown reason for several days now and support just got back to me with a response they are looking at it. The transaction failed and no coins was refunded. And now this. Sad I always thought and had an impression transfers were automated.
