Not sure if this is the right place to post because it is not specifically bitcoin, but it is crypto, and I need the help of someone a bit more tech-savvy than myself... I have just downloaded the wallet for a new cryptocurrency, and it was working fine, but as I was getting used to the layout, I accidentally checked “connect through socks proxy” box in the settings. Now I have tried to go back on the wallet and it won’t open, and comes up with error message “unsupported argument - socks found. Setting SOCKS version isn’t possible anymore, only SOCKS5 proxies are supported”. I have tried deleting all the files, redownloading the wallet, and restarting computer, but it still comes up with the same error message and won’t let me open the wallet to change the setting back! Is there a way to change this setting without opening the program, or bypass this error message so I can open it and change it? As this is a new currency, there is only this one wallet available so I can’t just use a different one, and I really don’t want to leave my coins sat in the exchange! Thanks in advance for any advice..
The solution for anyone else is to change the Ignition registry value for fUseProxy back to false, then relaunch the wallet. Search for it in regedit.
