I installed and set up Boinc and the Gridcoin wallet on Windows 10 a week ago, without any problems. I then purchased 5700 GRC on an exchange and financed the wallet. I duly began mining, and have received a few coins. Over the last few days my balance has grown by 9 coins and everything seems to be functioning. I have also upgraded to version v126.96.36.199-g-research.
However, for some reason none of the links on the Advanced menu of the wallet respond. Clicking them produces no response. I have tried reinstalling the wallet by deleting everything except wallet.dat and the Gridcoinresearch.conf file, and have checked that the wallet is running with administrative permission, nevertheless the items under Advanced still fail to respond even though the remainder of the wallet's functions continue to work.
Is there something I should activate or deactivate in order to access the Advanced menu items? I have read through the forum and the FAQs but can find no reference to anyone having this specific problem with the advanced menu.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
