Zecwallet Fullnode Stuck On "Loading..." Forever

Zecwallet Fullnode Stuck On "Loading..." Forever

I'm trying to install the Zecwallet Fullnode on Windows 10 64 bit. I grabbed the .msi file from the website here:


Verified correct HASH:

Ran the .msi file. Everything seemed fine. It didn't prompt me for anything like an install path or anything like that. In the end an icon appeared on the desktop.

When I double click on it, it opens up an application with a large "Loading..." with the ZecWallet icon in the middle but nothing else happens even after several hours. It just stays on Loading...

I went here for debugging instructions:

But there isn't even a "%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\Zcash" directory. I think there should be a zcashd process but I'm not able to find one in the Task Manager either.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall completely again and still the same problem happens. There's no error report or anything - just the Loading... screen is all I see.

Loading forever.

I also tried to download the zip file and extracted the executable, and ran it. I see the same loading screen which seems to go on forever.

Any ideas for what I can try to get this working would be appreciated!
