MeowBit, now for XP as well as Windows 7 and 8. View Dot-Bit (Namecoin) domains system wide!


Whee! We now cover all common Windows versions: Windows 7, Windows 8, and XP.


If you’re on Windows 7/8, you go HERE.

The MeowBit for XP is a hard fork. We will do tech support for it on our forum, but will not be updating it as often as we update the Windows 7/8 version. We just did a lot of work making an XP version due to user requests. We’ve tested it and it works well on our end.

INSTALLING THE XP VERSION: You will still need the updated Namecoin wallet, and should read the install info for the main version of MeowBit, HERE. It’s mostly the same info, except for this:

Special Information for Meow Bit for Windows XP
IMPORTANT: MeowBit requires upgrades for the .Net Framework which is not included in this installer.

Most people probably won’t need the update. If you’ve updated Windows XP in the last year, MeowBit should work fine out of the box.

If MeowBit crashes shortly after start-up, it is because these updates are not installed on your system.

The preferred method of obtaining these updates is to use Windows Update on your start menu and Install all Optional Updates for .Net 4.0
Alternatively, the Update 4.0.3 for Microsoft .NET Framework 4, available here:
contains the updates needed to run MeowBit on Windows XP.


Source code for XP version is here.

Better version of MeowBit out now. v 0.3.5179.694

Howdy kitties!

We’ve been listening to your feedback and doing a lot of beta testing on our own, on many computers. Derrick worked his butt off tonight making an updated version. It works better, and also logs better…that will help us help you if you need help.

(NOTE to users: if you’d installed a previous version, uninstall the old version first. Click on desktop kitty to open MeowBit monitor. Stop Service. Go into system tray. Right-click on kitty, exit MeowBit. Go to Windows Start / Control Panel, Programs and Features / click MeowBit to uninstall. Then you can install new version.)

(Updates from previous version: fixes www./no www. issue. Fixes bug that made some people unable to install. Also has better logging to help us help you.)

(Note to developers: 3/6/14 11:08 PM Wyoming time: the source code on our source page is the last version, Derrick had to go to sleep. We will update the source link tomorrow evening, and put on GitHub with our third roll out.)

New version is at the same download link as the old one, on the Install page, HERE.

If you have questions or issues, please post them on our forum, HERE.

Thank you,
