Installing the NEO-GUI Client
Unless otherwise stated, this article introduces the NEO-GUI running on the test net. For more information, refer to Test Network.
Downloading the client
Download NEO-GUI and extract the files to a location of your choice, then double-click neo-gui.exe to run the client. If there are any problems with the process and the client cannot be used normally, please keep the error.log file located in the same directory as NEO-GUI, then contact our technical staff to assist you in solving the problem.
The NEO-GUI client is compatible with the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 (Service Pack 1) / Windows 8 / Windows 10.
Pre-Windows 10 systems require .NET Framework 4.6.2 to be installed.
You need to install the ImportBlocks plugin to enable NEO-GUI to synchronize with the offline package.
- Download ImportBlocks and unzip it.
- Create a new Plugins folder (The first letter is capitalized) under the NEO-GUI root directory and copy the unzipped plugin into it.
Synchronizing blockchain data
The client must be fully synchronized before use. In order to speed up network synchronization you can download an offline package of the blockchain data up to a certain block height. This means the client will only need to sync the additional blocks from the NEO network rather than the entire blockchain. For more information, see Synchronizing the blockchain faster.
