My blocks freeze at around the 760,000 mark, therefore I downloaded Parity's latest version to which I then received the message above. I have downloaded multiple versions of Parity to try and fix the error, so that I can run my ETH Wallet and receive ETH which I have purchased.

I haven't found anyone with the same issue so far, however I have seen a plethora of videos which describe how to download and run Parity with ETH wallet, and I followed these to the T. Therefore I cannot understand what is wrong.

  • ASUS Notebook
  • 2GB RAM
  • I have 3GB free storage
  • Running Windows 10

If my specs are the issue, are there any suggestions to overcome this problem as I have paid for my ETH and not received as yet due to non-functional Wallet. If I bought it and sent it to my Wallet address before the block-data was fully downloaded will it clear my purchase so that I have wasted my money?

  • can you provide logs? What does it say when you run parity ui ?

  • This version of C:\Program Files\Ethcore\Parity\parity.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher. I attempted to use what you suggested but it said it was unable to find Parity

    3 GB of free storage may not be enough to hold the entire chain Jul 2, 2017 at 13:05

Parity is not available for 32 bit versions of Windows.

But it's on the long wishlist, you can track it here: https://github.com/paritytech/parity/issues/5692

It will be probably faster to upgrade all your systems to 64 bit.


ETH should already be in your wallet, you can check the balance in your wallet address here: https://etherscan.io/
