Current Version: v2.5.0
By far the easiest way to install Qbundle is using the Qbundle_installer_v2.1.0.msi tool. Download and run this file to begin the install.
After running the installer, you may be presented with either Window’s Defender or SmartScreen dialogue boxes. There is nothing to worry about, many cryptocurrency applications return false positives, simply click run.
The installer will open to a welcome screen. After clicking next, you will be able to change the install location or leave it as the default. On the next screen select Install and allow the install to begin in the User Account Control pop-up.
The Install will now begin. Once finished, the installer will present you with a finished screen asking to launch Qbundle. Leave this box checked and click finish.
Qbundle will launch to the first time set up screen. If you have not already installed Java on your machine Qbundle will prompt you to download a portable version for use within the application. This is required since the wallet, or Burst Refrence Software (BRS), is written in Java. Click download missing components to let Qbundle install Java automatically.
Once the download completes, Qbundle will return to the previous screen, but now all necessary components shoudl be installed. Click continue to launch Qbundle and start syncing the blockchain. You may receive a Windows Security Alert saying that Windows Firewall has block features of Qbundle. These features are needed to connecting to other peers on the network. Click allow, and the blockchain will begin syncing.
While you can use Qbundle with the included H2 database, it is highly recomended to use MariaDB. The next steps will walk you through changing your database to MaraDB. These steps are optional, but recomended for greater stability.
In the menu bar, click the database tab, then click change database. The change databse window will open, verify that your current database is H2 and the new database selction is on Portable MariaDB, then click next. Qbundle will ask permission to install MariaDB, select yes and wait for the install to complete.
Finally, in the change database window, click save and continue.
Your wallet is now completely set up. If the wallet is not automatically started, click wallet in the menu bar and then start wallet. The wallet will now sync and use MariaDB as the database.
