Ark Client not responding

  • Hello, I am new to Ark and I recently installed the Ark wallet for Windowsx64 to try to vote and be part of this ecosystem. I am having trouble with the client though. It is completely unusable as every click makes it go in not responding mode.

    I tried to uninstall and reinstall a couple times and it won’t change anything.

    Do you have any suggestions as to what I could do to fix this?


  • Hi Belougue,

    Could you maybe create a crashdump from the application? Try this.
    Do you have perhaps a specific app running in the background? (AV, Firewall, …)

  • I tried to follow these instructions but it won’t work, maybe because the program is not crashing, just lagging insanely.

    I found a work around by installing an older version of the client, Ark 1.2.2, which is working just fine. I might not get all the latest features but at least I can vote for a delegate.

    I have Windows Defender and Windows firewall, that’s about it.

  • This appears to be introduced since 1.3.0 both in x86 and x64.
    I have this same issue.

    Up untill Ark Client 1.2.2 it’s working very fast and smooth, from 1.3.0 onwards it doesn’t run at all.

    Windows Firewall is not a problem.
    Windows Defender is not a problem.
    Other virus scanners are not a problem.

    It doesn’t seem to be memory consuming, it takes about ~100MB Memory and 0% other resources.
    After a while (it depends), you do get to see the full Ark screen, but still you can never click anything.

    Unfortunately, I don’t really know what could be the problem though, but posting this here, as it is not really single user related.
