I downloaded peercoin-qt.exe.
I unticked the open-client-automatically box, so I could at least see the peercoin-qt.exe file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Peercoin folder before doing anything
I right clicked and opened, and it said “Insufficient system resources to complete the requested service”. The anti-virus software then kicked in and peercoin-qt.exe disappeared from the Program Files (x86)\Peercoin folder
I created an exception in the McAfee anti-virus, and peercoin-qt.exe re-appeared
I right clicked and opened - and again got the “Insufficient system resources to complete the requested service” message - and the anti-virus software again removed the .exe file!
So, I am scuppered at the moment. Let’s deal with the “Insufficient system resources” problem first - any ideas?
The computer has only been on half-an-hour, so it is not as if I have been using it all day.
UPDATE: I have switched the anti-virus scan off (for a 15 minute period) and the client opened with no problem - so I guess the “insufficient resources” is not a separate problem - it is related to the anti-virus software
ANOTHER UPDATE: After the 15-minute period elapsed, the anti-virus software came back - the client remained onscreen. I closed the client and relaunched it - the anti-virus software again kicked in
I don’t this this problem can be fully resolved at the moment - but I can use the client if I need to by switching off the anti-virus scanning.
Thanks for the help and suggestions
