I’ve been involved with crypto for over three years and I’m not a newb. I mined a lot of Reddcoin when it was first created years ago, and I really like the goals of the project. But I’ve never had more trouble with a wallet in my life! I’m using a Windows 8.1 PC with an Intel i3 CPU, and 8 GB of ram, so more than capable. I downloaded the latest wallet 22.214.171.124 and installed it, and deleted everything but my wallet.dat in the appdata\roaming\Reddcoin directory and downloaded the fast start pack like suggested in other posts here. Unzipped the file with 7-zip and placed it in the appdata\roaming\Reddcoin directory and ran the wallet. Starts to load from disk and after say 30 minutes it freezes with zero CPU/disk/network activity in the task manager. Restart it, same issue. Gave up on fast start pack. Try to sync from network, so delete everything but my wallet.dat and start over. Over 3 years to sync. 8 connections, but very slow. Wallet freezes as previously described, or crashes. But it does make some progress each time, so I keep checking on it while I watch TV and kill it when it freezes/crashes and restart. This takes days! Finally get to about 1 year left of sync and get this error message after it loads the blockchain:
A fatal error occurred. Reddcoin can no longer continue safely and will quit.
CWalletDB::ListAccountCreditDebit() : cannot create DB cursor
C:\Users\name\Coin\Wallets\ReddCoin [RDD]\reddcoin-qt.exe in Runaway exception
Happens every time I launch the wallet now. WTH?! I finally deleted the latest two files in the blocks folder to see if I could get past the error, but then it tells me the blockchain is corrupt so I select to rebuild the database, and now I’m back to 3 years to sync. Wallet does the same thing in that it loads some data from disk and then freezes/crashes. I’m willing to cooperate with whatever needs to get done to get synced, but this is just unbelievable. The state of the wallet is really, really bad, at least if you need to sync a significant amount of the blockchain. This doesn’t bode well.
