Title: fully functional non-browser client for Win?
Post by: Squeaker on July 13, 2015, 11:36:12 am
Since it doesn't appear Wesley's client will be updated anymore, I am in need of another fully-functional non-browser wallet client for windows (pre-compiled)...

I have absolutely no idea what else is available, and the functionality of what is...

Anyone have any recommendations for a replacement? (preferably a low-resource one?)

Keeping my browser open constantly is impractical for me...

I think you refer to the non browser version of the client, or is the browser version no longer gonna be updated???

you do not need to keep your browser open constantly to forge... Just press logout instead of log out and stop forging.
You do need to keep the cmd window open where the server is started...


As alternative to windows, there is Mofo wallet to.

Also a great offline option, not for forgen though, is vapor wallet.

I already said non-browser version, and I also said it was Wesley's client that looks like it won't be updated... (I'm in no position to know that for certain, it is just how it appears to me)

It was Wesley's client I had been using up until now.

Yes, I already know this, and it isn't all about forging... but about me having to keep too many windows and tabs open in my browser already, the last thing I need is a program interface open in it too, competing within the limited resources of my browser against everything else...

Also, since whenever I sign back into my account, the forging indicator shows disabled. I have no reason to be confident that my account is still forging when my browser is closed, since forging stops whenever I refresh the page or reload my browser. (this is a separate, unrelated issue to my not wanting to have to use the browser as my interface however)

Thank you, I will hunt that down and take a peek.

Thanks, but offline usage isn't an issue... just want to be able to game on one monitor while keeping my assets visible on the other monitor, with a smaller footprint than I would get keeping the browser open.

Here are the links to wesleys clients:

Mac: https://bitbucket.org/nxt-wallet/nxt-wallet-mac/downloads

Win: https://bitbucket.org/nxt-wallet/nxt-wallet-win/downloads

1. Download the 1.4.7.1 version, install it, but don't start it yet.

2. Download the latest NRS version.

3. Go to installed direction folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Nxt Wallet) and delete everything from "nxt" folder

4. Unpack the latest NRS version to the "nxt" folder

5. Go to desktop and start the "Nxt Wallet" shortcut

And you're done, you have wesleys client with latest NRS...

That won't work for the Mac client. Better to download the latest version here:
