My Monero GUI wallet cannot connect to monerod. I get this:

Status connection error

This is what I had tried:

  • I did a completely new installation.
  • I have deleted C:/ProgramData/bitmonero folder.
  • I deleted the unzipped folder containing Monero GUI wallet.
  • I downloaded the wallet again.
  • I ran Monero GUI wallet but the old wallet is still open and asked me for a password.
  • After I set a password the wallet will open with 0 balance and status disconnected.

Any idea to solve that? monerod seems open and work correctly.

Thanks for help.
