As some of you might be aware already, I’ve been working on porting Status Desktop to Windows. The app is currently in a good state, missing only the recent notifications functionality. I’ve shared two builds previously on Status
#status-people-ops channels, assuming that this would reach most Windows users. However, in recent days I’ve noticed that some Windows users were not aware of this build and are still running Status Desktop on a VM, so a Discuss post seems in order.
For users of builds #1/#2 moving to build #3 and later
Since there’s been a change of directory names in more recent builds, users of previous Windows builds will need to move their data folder if they want to keep their current account data. It should be enought to go to a terminal (Windows Command Prompt) and type
move "%APPDATA%\StatusIm" "%LOCALAPPDATA%" && rename "%LOCALAPPDATA%\StatusIm" Status

- Notifications are not yet working on Windows due to build errors.
- Deep links will not be available until a setup program is available, since this requires minor changes to the OS configuration.
