I'm getting the following error running bitcoind (latest stable, v0.16.0) on Windows 10 Pro x64:
C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\daemon>.\bitcoind.exe -daemon
Error: -daemon is not supported on this operating system
Anyone know why? According to the official docs it should run on Windows 10. It's also mentioned here but no answer.
-daemonis not supported on Windows. The bitcoin.org instructions are wrong to suggest it. I have opened an issue.
