I'm a Windows 10 user. I had a working GUI in 11.0 (it took forever to get it working but yes it worked) and now I don't in 12.0. I've sent money after the fork using 11.0 (ignorant to the fork) and not only can I not get that back but I can't get the 12.0 GUI to load it at all. It works in the low-graphics mode but not the regular mode. How to resolve this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Use that ^ guide to resolve your issue. Also, I am not entirely sure what the issue is with getting it to work if it starts with the start-low-graphics-mode.batbatch file. Note that the devs are aware that the graphics fallback is not working properly and this will be fixed in the upcoming point release. – dEBRUYNE Apr 26 '18 at 8:40
  • Thanks I have another question why wouldnt the devs update themselves to prevent this type of annoyance? Wouldnt that make more sense for the software to update itself?? – maddkatt Apr 28 '18 at 21:25
  • This was a bit of an oversight on our side. It should be a lot smoother the next fork, i.e., you, most likely, will not have to perform any manual steps to correct your blockchain. In sum, merely upgrading should be sufficient next time. – dEBRUYNE Apr 29 '18 at 14:33

Take a bit of time and learn Debian Linux. It's simple and completely free. Runs circles around Windows 10. Crypto currencies work much better without Windows issues, including Monero.

  • You know that may be the better way to go thanks – maddkatt Apr 28 '18 at 21:22

Your funds are not gone as long as you kept your keys and know your passphrase. Have you tried running the GUI using a different computer?

  • With all respect and apologies this isn't going that well and I have a right to be frustrated and frankly that's what the large print is indicating – maddkatt Apr 28 '18 at 21:21
