Double click the downloaded MSI file (nimiq-v*.x64.msi) and follow the instructions during the installation process.

Configuration

Note: To run a Nimiq Full Node and receive connections from other peers you need a valid domain name and SSL certificate.

The configuration file for Linux is located in /etc/nimiq/nimiq.conf

On Windows systems, to access the configuration go to the Windows Start Menu and in the Nimiq folder select "Edit Config".

Example Configuration File

{
    host: "example.yourdomain.com",
    tls: {
        cert: "PATH-TO-YOUR-CERTIFICATE",
        key: "PATH-TO-YOUR-KEY",
    },
    network: "main",
    miner: {
        enabled: "yes",
    },
} 

Usage

Linux

systemctl start|stop|restart nimiq

Windows

Start the Nimiq Application from the Windows Start Menu. If the miner is enabled in the configuration file, mining will start automatically.
