In Windows, how can I get what I get with "bitcoind getinfo" in Linux?

2 Answers 2


If it's QT: go to "Help" -> "Debug Window" -> "console" type rpc command here

Or go from the commandline to the folder your bitcoin daemon is in and run a command from the bitcoin exe. NOTE: you may need to add server=1 to your bitcoin.conf in %APPDATA%

  • Where is the daemon? I can find only bitcoin-qt.exe

    bitcoin-qt.exe is in the installation directory and bitcoind.exe is in the daemon subdirectory. Commented Jan 7, 2014 at 16:11
