Setup Guide on the Loki GUI Wallet

This document will tell you exactly how to set up and operate the Loki GUI wallet. The latest version of the wallet can be downloaded here.

Windows users: (Mac and Linux users skip to step 6)

1) Make sure Windows Defender (or other anti-virus software) is not flagging it. Add 'loki-gui-win...' folder (or saved name of download) to exclusions in Windows Defender.

3) Make sure that the path to your Loki folder doesn't contain non-latin characters.

4) Right click loki-wallet-gui.exe and select 'run as administrator'.
