Nová GUI v0.14.1.0 'Boron Butterfly'
This version, if using your own (local) node, requires a database conversion, which may take 5-10 minutes and the GUI will show that it's
Disconnected (or unable to connect) from the daemon (monerod). I'd advise to simply let it run and after the database conversion has completed the GUI will connect back to the daemon (monerod).
You ought to perform the following steps:
- Download the new binaries (the
.zipfile (Windows) or the
tar.bz2file (Mac OS X and Linux)) from the direct download links in this thread or from the official website. If you run active AV (AntiVirus) software, I'd recommend to apply this guide -> https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/10798/my-antivirus-av-software-blocks-quarantines-the-monero-gui-wallet-is-there
- Extract the new binaries (the
.zipfile (Windows) or the
tar.bz2file (Mac OS X and Linux) you just downloaded) to a new directory / folder of your liking.
monero-wallet-gui1. It should automatically load your "old" wallet and you should be set for the upcoming scheduled network upgrade.
- If you're running a local node, the integrated daemon (monerod)
will first have to convert your database to a new version. This may take
5-10 minutes and the GUI will show that it's
Disconnected. I'd advise to simply let it run and after the database conversion has completed the GUI will connect back to the daemon (monerod).
(1) On Linux you ought to start the GUI with the
start-gui.sh script, i.e.,
(2) If, for some reason, the GUI doesn't automatically load your old wallet, you can open it as follows:
 On the second page of the wizard (first page is language selection) choose
Open a wallet from file
 Now select your initial / original wallet. Note that, by default, the wallet files are located in
Users/<username>/Monero/<wallet-name> (Mac OS X), or
Lastly, note that a blockchain resync is not needed,
i.e., it will simply pick up where it left off. However, to reiterate, a
database conversion is required, which may take 5-10 minutes and the
GUI will show that it's
Disconnected from the daemon (monerod).

Guides to resolve common issues
Using the GUI with a remote node
In the wizard, you can either select
Simple mode or
Simple mode (bootstrap) to utilize this functionality. Note that the GUI developers / contributors recommend to use
Simple mode (bootstrap)
as this mode will eventually use your own (local) node, thereby
contributing to the strength and decentralization of the network.
Lastly, if you manually want to set a remote node, you ought to use
Advanced mode. A guide can be found here:
