- *What do I do if the GUI is showing `Wrong Version` at the bottom left?* If you see this message the daemon you are using is incompatible with the GUI. The daemon supplied in the binaries is compatible with the GUI. Thus, if you are seeing this message you are likely using a remote node, which is running a daemon that is incompatible with the GUI. Note that you will be able to receive funds. However, you *won't* be able to send funds.
- *What if I get an "Can't create transaction: Wrong daemon version: internal error: histogram reports no unlocked outputs for xxxxxxxxxxxx, not even ours" error?* This means that you are using a daemon that is incompatible with the GUI. This is likely caused by using a remote node (see Q&A 2.). Alternatively, it could be caused by using a version 0.9.4 or 0.10.0.
- *What if I get an "Can't create transaction: Wrong daemon version: internal error: histogram reports no unlocked outputs for xxxxxxxxxxxx, not even ours" error?* This means that you are using a daemon that is incompatible with the GUI. This is likely caused by using a remote node (see above). Alternatively, it could be caused by using a version 0.9.4 or 0.10.0.
- *What if I get an "Error: failed to load wallet: input stream error" error when trying to open an existing wallet* This is due to the wallet cache (`<walletname>`) being incompatible. You can circumvent this error by removing your wallet cache. The GUI will then open your wallet and refresh from scratch. It is advised to properly backup your wallet files before you perform this action. Also note that deleting the wallet cache results in losing some of the transaction history, namely recipient addresses and private tx keys. Thus, if you want to use an existing wallet with the GUI, it is advisable to backup your wallet cache in case you need transaction history info in the future.
- *What if I get an "Error opening wallet: std::bad_alloc" error?* This error is also caused by an incompatible wallet cache. Thus, see Q&A 4. for further information.
- *What if I get an "Error opening wallet: std::bad_alloc" error?* This error is also caused by an incompatible wallet cache. See the previous question for further information.
- *Can I open a wallet I created with the CLI?* Yes, this is possible with the wallet picker in the wizard. Use the "I want to open a wallet from file" option and select your .keys file to open the wallet created with the CLI. Alternatively, if you already have a wallet opened and want to switch to your CLI wallet, go to the `Settings` page and choose `Close wallet`. This will bring you back to the wizard, where you can choose your CLI wallet. Note that your cache may be incompatible and you may incur an error. If this happens, see the FAQ questions above.
