I have win10, downloaded the GUI and the blockchain into my laptop. Finally got a full node running, even able to mine from the GUI now if I want to! Point is, everything is finally working and working great. But the whole time it was working, I did have the Monerod file open and I could keep looking in it to see progress and things like that before I got fully synced for the very first time. I left GUI on all night mining and this morning I shut it all down before I left for work. Shutdown the GUI, the monerod file I had open and the laptop. When I get home tonight, do I just turn on my laptop and open the GUI wallet I have as a shortcut on my desktop? Or, do I also have to open that monerod file as well and leave it running the whole time for the GUI wallet to sync and to stay synced. I hope you can understand what I'm asking, THANKS!

    Works either way. You can start monerod separately or let the GUI start it automatically. – dEBRUYNE Mar 20 at 15:17
  • Thanks!. I ask because I start from turning on laptop>open GUI from my shortcut, immediately says starting daemon unless I want use custom settings. I do nothing wrh that suggestion, wait few more seconds and it proceeds to start daemon. After 2 mins a new screen pops up always saying Daemon Failed to Start, under that says "Timed out, local node not responding after 120 seconds. Please check your wallet and daemon log for errors. You can also try to start monerod.exe manually".-So I open files, open monerod and it all starts up fine. I wish didnt have to open my files>monerod to make it work? – Michael Borne Mar 21 at 4:34

    Does the GUI properly connect to the daemon (monerod) if it runs separately? '3 addresses!LoL' <= That is expected. – dEBRUYNE Mar 22 at 12:00

    What version numbers are ascribed to both those folders? – dEBRUYNE Mar 25 at 19:13

    dEBRUYNE, you should probably add an answer with what's in your first comment, since it answers the actual question. – user36303 Apr 2 at 18:07
