    Hello I wanted to stake my coins for a while now but have been delaying it cause it seemed like such a hassle. So today I tried and failed big time..
    I followed the steps and downloaded the amd 64 from github. I read it was a zip file and since I didnt had winzip on my pc I downloaded it and unzipped it to a folder. After that I opened the comment prompt and typt the instructions and pressed enter but I got this message:

    'drcd' is not recognized as an internal or external commend, operable program or batch file. Tried with and without spaces etc but everytime I get the same message. What Am I doing wrong?? Wanted to stake for a long time but seems so complicated for the average user ..

    Which steps did you go through?

    All of our docs are here: docs.decred.org

    First I'd walk through the Getting Started instructions for you particular OS. Once dcrd and dcrwallet are started and running, choose a stakepool and they will have instructions for you to walk through to get set up for properly purchasing tickets (and they'll handle the rest).

    I followed the steps of the getting started instructions like you say but somehow I manage to fck it up. I think I did something wrong when unzipping the file although dont know what since I opened the file with winzip and choose the unzip option and selected my folder to copy the data. step two is to open the command prompt and enter a line a text with your own username and password, after I followed the steps I get the error mentioned above. JUst my luck I guess gonna try another time.
    a normal wallet still doesn't exist right ?
