Wallet upgrade MinGW Runtime Assetion meaning?


#1

got this message after install, please tell me what it means.
How is this resolved?
Assertion failed!
Program: C:\Program Files\Litecoin\litecoin-qt.exe
File: chain.cpp, Line 101
Expression: pindexWalk->pprev

Thank you


#2

it is failing to index swo your drive is not indexing files so it can find them later…try starting litecoin like this form command prompt… litecoin-qt.exe --reindex


#3

Thank you.

Using C:\system32\cmd.exe
C:\Users\Owner>litecoin-qt.exe -reindex

It says: litecoin-qt.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

because you are trying to run it as an administrator…and it is not install under Admin…you must have it installed as a User and not Admin…do this instead…
make a batch file for qt in the folder you have qt installed in…

example for shortcut to QT saved on desktop:
Right click and go to “Open File Location”

now in that folder…right click and go to "create new test document"
now type:
start litecoin-qt.exe --reindex
now go to “File”…“save As”…Selected “All Files” instead of .txt and save it as “start.bat”

now double click the batch file to open litecoin-qt with the command

if it still says that then you’ll need to move the right click the batch file or QT and “run as Administrator” then close it and try again as non admin

Thank you. We’re getting there.
Now getting this message:

“You don’t have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission.”

You can tell that this is all new to me… Deeply appreciate the help and time you give so freely. Thank You!!

Re-indexing 5 yrs.

Thanks again.
