Windows installation

This guide describes how to download and install the TWINS desktop wallet for Windows 10, Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.

DO NOT use any other download locations as those do not guarantee that you will get a clean wallet that has not been tampered with.

  • The Windows wallet comes with an automatic installer so just save it to a directory of your choice.

  • Run the downloaded installer to start the installation process.

At this point, you may see a warning from Windows SmartScreen (or a similar program) that the app is unrecognized. You can safely skip past this warning by clicking More info, then Run anyway.

  • The installer will then guide you through the installation process.

  • Click through the following screens. All settings can be left at their default value unless you have a specific reason to change something.

  • Once installation is complete, the TWINS core wallet will start up immediately. If it does not, click Start > TWINS Core > TWINS Core to start the application.

  • The first time the program is launched, you will be asked where you want to store your wallet and blockchain data. Choose a location with enough free space as the files can take more space as the blockchain grows. It is recommended to use the default data folder if possible.

  • Initial startup might take a minute and once started wait for the wallet to fully synchronise before you start using it.

  • When the synchronisation is complete you will see a small green icon lighting up at the bottom right corner in your wallet:
