@Quibus has created a launcher and portable package so that Windows users can take advantage of the most stable Burst wallet available. This package bundles the launcher, MariaDB, and Java. The installer also has an optional function to notify the user of new versions of software, and can automatically update your installation.
I have been running 1.3.4cg with the windows launcher for several days now. It took me about 2 days to sync the blockchain, and has been rock solid the whole time. I recommend all Windows 64 users to upgrade to this wallet to have the most reliable solution available.
This is just the first release! Many more features are planned for the future.
Source code, and releases can be found here - https://github.com/Quibus-burst/Burst-Wallet-Launcher/releases

- 4GB Memory
- Dual Core CPU
- Download the package here - http://files.getburst.net/full/Burstwallet-1.3.4cg-bundle.zip (198MB)

- Run BurstWalletLauncher.exe
For Windows 8 and 10 users, you will most likely get a Smart Screen message upon running the launcher. Just click on “More Info”, and then choose “Run Anyway”. We are looking into getting an EV certificate to sign Burst software so this message doesn’t pop up.
To take advantage of the update notifications, choose “Yes” when this windows appears.
From there you can start and stop the wallet from the launcher.
When a new launcher version or CG wallet is released, you can get notified, and choose to update your software if you wish.
