Ethereum Wallet / Mist 0.11.1 Checksum error right after installation

Hello everyone

You might be getting this question a lot, but I tried googling first and nothing works.

I am trying to set up an Ethereum Wallet locally, but everytime I run the client I get the Checksum error, and it’s prompting me to manually install an older version of Geth (1.8.23).

​

​

Steps (I did the same with Ethereum Wallet and with Mist; all installations are on a separate drive than C:):

​

​

1. Separate geth and Ethereum Wallet / Mist

* I installed geth first, then started it with a bat file which points to the correct chain data folder.
* I downloaded the wallet client, unpacked the ZIP and started the client.
* The checksum error pops up, asking me to manually install geth 1.8.23

​

​

2. The all in one Ethereum Wallet / Mist installer which also lets you choose the chain data folder for geth

* Installed the client, pointing the two folders.
* I start the client and he checksum error pops up, asking me to manually install geth 1.8.23

​

​

3. I went to “C:\Users\x\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum Wallet\binaries\Geth” to replace the geth .exe, but I can only see an archive there and not the “unpacked” folder, so I can’t really replace the .exe.

​

I don’t know at this point what I am doing wrong, it just won’t work…

​

Thank you!

Greg Maxwell flexed on Core dev Jeremy Rubin so that Jeremy would remove and self-censor all his tweets about possibly reorging the BTC chain. Jeremy also had to add a disclaimer to his tweets. Don’t mess with Greg Super-Maxwell or get shunned!
