It still says blockchain is not loaded.

edit the nxt-default.properties in the conf directory and set the value nxt.isLightClient=true to nxt.isLightClient=false

Then restart the nxt client

Don't edit that - edit nxt.properties instead. Otherwise your changes will be over-written when you upgrade.

Thanks guys, that seems to have done the trick.
My only option was editing nxt-default.properties
4056 blocks left to download.

I posted a thread but figured I'd post here as well.

I've been trying to download the blockchain from two different PCs and it keeps stalling once I get to around the timestamp of the block to where I started my download. Then it will just hang and stop and the blocks to download will start building up. I downloaded Wicket's backup last night and was able to sync the blockchain fully for the first time, only to have it stop at that point and start hanging again and falling behind. My node keep seems to be switching on and off as well. It's been pretty frustrating I just want my blockchain to sync and I've been trying to download it for several days. Any help would be appreciated. About to try on a 3rd pc. Thanks.

It runs on Windows or Linux?

Before install the extracted zip files you must shutdown all the clients or servers
Here some screenshots how to do it.

First shutdown the nxt client
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxil1u8dt_kvUk5TTGNDOFRobk0

Then remove all these files
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxil1u8dt_kvWEN6aVdsZzdkTWs

Then copy the extracted zip file to that directory
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bxil1u8dt_kvRDUtZlJLOVVrbmc

Start your client or server and give it some time to synchronize the missing blocks before you install it on the other nodes.

By the way i'm not so familiar with the Windows platform. But i have download and tested my own blockchain file with Windows 7 under Virtualbox and it works.

Question?

Would downloading the blockchain from peerexplorer constitute running a full node??

Follow up....If I am asking this question, I probably shouldnt be running a full node? Or give it a run?

Yes. A full node is a node that keeps its own copy of the blockchain, while a light node gets blockchain information from another peer.
