I am trying to start bitcoin server in regtest mode using bitcoind -regtest -daemon command on my windows 7 operating system. Error I am getting is daemon is not supported on this operating system.

My bitcoin configuration is:

regtest=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpctimeout=30
rpcallowip=192.168.1.1/24
rpcport=8332
rpcconnect=127.0.0.1
rpcssl=1
# OpenSSL settings used when rpcssl=1
rpcsslciphers=TLSv1+HIGH:!SSLv2:!aNULL:!eNULL:!AH:!3DES:@STRENGTH
rpcsslcertificatechainfile=server.cert
rpcsslprivatekeyfile=server.pem

gen=1
keypool=100
paytxfee=0.00001000

I am a novice so please bear with me if this is a basic question. Tried multiple times but getting same daemon not supported error.

    Yes, the concept of a daemon (background running process) is not implemented in Bitcoin Core for Windows. Just remove the -daemon from your command line. – Pieter Wuille May 1 '17 at 14:00

In the command line on windows you must type just bitcoind -regtest whitout -daemon
