October 16, 2019, We recommend that you wait for installers which we are developing before attempting to install and use jormungandr on Windows. These instructions will likely not work for you. If you are still keen to run jormungandr on windows you can try using git bash which allows you to enter Linux commands found in the Linux articles on this site but we do not support the use of Git Bash here.
Windows users should use PowerShell and not CMD for executing these commands.
How to Start the Node
Open a new comand line window, and navigate to the same location where the
jormungandr and jcli files are located so that you can start the node.
1. Start the node by with the command:
./jormungandr --config ./node-config.yaml --genesis-block-hash adbdd5ede31637f6c9bad5c271eec0bc3d0cb9efb86a5b913bb55cba549d0770
After the node starts, (it may take a few minutes for the node to get the boostrap information from a peer node and start) you should see output similar to this:
Let the node run for a couple of minutes (until you see the logs similar to the above screenshot) and then you can check if the node is synced to the blockchain. See How do I check that my node is in sync?
How to Stop the node
If you close the comand line window that the node is running in that will terminate jormungandr and stop the node.
How to start the Node with Backtrace for trouble shooting
1. Enable Backtrace BEFORE starting the node
2. Start the node node using the instructions above.
