This is also happening to me as well. I'm opening SIA-UI through administrator and it's doing nothing 99% of the time....
It has only successfully opened once since the time I have installed it. Please developers and staff, if you see this, at least reply to us saying that it's being look into, or something.
I will do what you say, i just want my 20k coins back.
I deleted completely Sia on the second computer, it was anyway a fresh install.
On the first computer I have 3800+ hosting contracts which i dont want to loose, hard to make them in ~100 days of uptime...
Deleting the wallet from the first computer will not be a problem for the hosting part?
How do I transfer the hosting part to another computer which has a diferrent wallet?
I do this clean recovery of the wallet with version 1.2.2? I saw there are some bugs in the recovery of a wallet with 1.2.1.
I transferred 5000 Siacoins as a test, my macbook(latest model) has sycn'd but there is no sign of the coins in my wallet.
What am i meant to do next ? I want to transfer a lot more coins but i am just waiting to ensure i figure this out first.
Here is the address i sent the coins too: 13a86bf8d844c0d82f0350be53ede4770554f6ee3e2c7e1e204589514d5125690e7fa0a25d76
I sent it from Poloniex to my sia wallet.
Can anyone please advise what i should do next, i am new to this and would greatly appreciate some help!
Thanks for the tips.
The "problem" with syncing has solved itself as I didn't have time to interfere or watch the process, after roughly 12h the new node has synced completely. Now I'm wondering about other people complaining about the long syncing time from what I had the impression it could take 2-3 days. I'm not sure but maybe the connection to the "on the local network running node" did help a bit, as the hardware of the smartos box isn't powerful at all. It's a 2GHz celeron, the sia node zone is residing on a consumer grade SSD (Corsair Force LS) and zone RAM usage is capped to 8GB.
The other reason of not really moving the existing node was (still is) the impression that I can make mistakes and break it or in worst case lose the coins. I know, I can recover with the seed, but as some people tell there are problems afterwards, why should I try to break and fix things that are working? So I'll use my existing wallet only as a wallet for holding coins ("cold wallet" with seed on paper only) and play around with new ones.
A quick additional question-
is (or will be?) siad capable to work with more than one wallet? I mean something like "concurrent multiuser capability" where the wallet password is the key for accessing "own files" and files belonging to other wallets are not accessible or visible.
