I have installed bitcoin core 0.17.1 version windows 10 in my laptop.

I can see the following folders: bin (bitcoin-cli.exe, bitcon-qt.exe, bitcoin-tx.exe, test_bitcoin.exe), include (bitcoinconsensus.h), lib (libbitcoinconsensus-0.dll), share (man).

I cannot find daemon\bitcoind. My bitcoin server is already running and sync on testnet, but I cannot connect via rpc because I cannot find bitcoind.

Any help?

It's at C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\daemon.

NOTE: On the download page, make sure to choose the installer, not the zip file.

The first one:

  • Yes. In fact, I I installed at C:\Program Files\bitcoin-0.17.1. That is where I can find all folders (bin, include, bin, share). No deamon folder. Jan 29, 2019 at 11:20
