Core Wallet Update Crashing - During chain Download

Hi All,

I have an issue when i’ve updated my Core software (i had been previously running a VERY old version 2013).

Moved and renamed my .DAT file backup into the new file location, deleting the old version, transactions show in my wallet but during the blockchain update the software crashes at 16% of the download.

Any ideas to resolve would be much apreciated!

you have to download the latest version…older wallet versions will not sync the blockchain to the current date

Thank you for the response.

This was using the latest version. Downloaded yesterday from

.dat file replaced in the “wallet” folder.

did you also make sure that you renamed the file “wallet.dat”? and that it is the only file named “wallet.dat” in the file?
