@mila: no admin rights are required to use this build.

 there is no actual "installation" involved - just some decompression of the source files
  to the "Application data\ElectrumP" profile folder. I guess we can call it portable
  (if used with the -w option).

Yes I'm still encountering this with the latest version...
Let me know it you need more detail from me.

there is a wallet.update() call in the recovery procedure.
it waits for an event (threading.Event)
perhaps the threading module is not completely supported by Windows?

Hello.

Icons work great now, thanks! I had to try pending icon also, so you should have received a little donation from me : )

Regarding wallet restore: If I ignore "No transactions found for this seed" and open and close program for about 5 times, "History" and "Receive" tabs get all the data, but "Contacts" tab stays empty.

And a little request: is it possible to make content of "Details" window copy / paste-able? For example if you double click on transaction, you can see status, ID, input, output - but user is not able to select that data and copy / paste it.

Thanks.

Glad to know that the icons are fine now, and thanks for the donation!

Regarding wallet restore, I've been getting the same results... Hopefully, we'll get a fix for this soon.

The contact list cannot restored using the seed only, if I'm not mistaken, so I guess
it has to be backed up separately, if necessary. Perhaps thomasV can confirm.  

And regarding copy/pasting Transaction Details, it's already possible! Ctrl-C works, even if the contents
are not selectable. Try it and paste in Notepad to test!

Hey,

Ctrl+C is a neat trick! Thanks!

0.40 binary (from BTCurious) also restores "contacts" tab, so i guess this is a default behaviour.

Cheers!

I'm not sure, but I'd be surprised if this was the case.
I made further tests and can confirm the issue is still there.
The balance shown is then incorrect, as well as the details of the most recent
transactions - actually, I've just noticed that even some of the addresses shown in the description
column are not the correct ones (until I manage to fully sync everything)!  Really strange...

(the current workaround is simply to restart/resync the client a couple of times).

Sure, 'monospace' is not a valid font name under Windows - so, when making my package, I replaced the references to it with 'Lucida Console' (which is one of the built-in monospace fonts for Windows)

I tried version 0.42f and it works great. It seems faster to me

Restore from mnemonic code works fine now (imports also contacts properly). Seed sequence is not working (same as before).

I personally liked previous fonts more.

Thanks for your efforts, flatfly!

Thanks for the nice feedback!

I've got some new information regarding the recovery issue:
it seems that which server you connect to plays a major role...
If I connect to ecdsa.org, recovery from seed is 100% correct from the first go!

Can anyone try and confirm?
I seem to remember that ecdsa.org uses different protocols than the other servers,
but am not too savvy on the details...

yes, I confirm.
I just discovered the issue this morning.
it affects only version 0.42; it does not work well with the old servers.

Great, I'm glad you could reproduce the problem too.  I hope it won't be too hard to fix.

hey,

I have not yet released 0.43.
it would be nice if you could wait until it's officially released

Sorry, I did mention it was a prelease but I didn't realize you wouldn't like it.
I have taken the link offline until the next official release.

Fantastic! Great job... Everything feels nice and robust, and wallet recovery now works flawlessly!
I honestly believe I'll never return to the default client!

The corresponding stand-alone Windows build is now available too:



EXE: http://dre.tx0.org/electrum043-standalone.exe  (6.5MB)
MD5: 5BAD6249F3B8DA268082BE8B1BE28FCB

Any comments welcome.

Hey,

0.43 binary does not work for me.

I have deleted Electrum-P folder and then run new exe, but i don't get past "Unpacking support files to profile directory..." screen.

If i terminate the task and try again... i get electrum.exe process in task manager but then nothing happens.

Any idea? I am on XP32sp3.
