Install Skycoin Windows Wallet
#1
Information 
This tutorial will show you how to install the Windows Skycoin wallet. For the purpose of this tutorial, I installed the 64bit version. Select 32bit if your Windows OS is 32bit. If unsure, right click "My Computer" and look at "System Type" under the System section. 

Download Skycoin wallet

(1) Open a browser to https://skycoin.net and click the "Downloads" button

(3) Choose to save the download to your "Downloads" folder

(4) Navigate to your Downloads folder and open the .zip in your file extractor. I used winrar but any zip software will work fine. Extract the contents directly to your C: drive or choose a custom folder, i.e. C:\Sky

Create Skycoin wallet

(1) Naviga
te to the skycoin-0-21.1-bin.win-x64 folder and launch the skycoin executable. After launching the wallet, a command window will open and launch a browser window.

Those unspent errors are normal. The wallet will sync after downloading the new blocks. It normally takes a few seconds but will be longer if you haven't launched the wallet in a few days or weeks
