NB: The only way to get nmcontrol to run cleanly following a reboot is to launch the nncontrol.pyc file generated by the build_windows batch file. Neither of the nmcontrolwin.exe files (in the build and dist folders) works, errorring finding the httpGUI plugin. Furthermore, after stopping nmcontrol I cannot restart it cleanly without rebooting the machine.

The bigger remaining problem for me from a usability perspective is that nmcontrol is not reading any names from the blockchain. In the docs, it says,

Import data from file
=====================

To generate the data file, do the following in the application folder (export is not implemented yet in nmcontrol) :

mkdir data
/path/to/namecoind name_filter > data/namecoin.dat

Configure conf/plugin-data.conf

import.mode = all
import.from = file
import.file = data/namecoin.dat


I'm running namecoin-qt version 0.3.80, and I don't see a name_filter file. Do I need to configure name_filter somewhere/somehow in namecoin.conf?

I copied the whole blockchain to data/namecoin.dat. Nmcontrol does not return an error, but the httpGUI says there are no names.

Stumped for now...
Sorry, I missed your posts about NMControl as I did not look at this thread. Thanks for your feedback.

Please try this more up to date version: https://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.p ... 632#p15632 Feedback is very much appreciated.

You do not need to import anything, NMControl will fetch the data it needs.

On Windows 8+ .bit configuration is automatic but with Windows 7 you have to set it up yourself as explained here: https://forum.namecoin.info/viewtopic.p ... 636#p15636
nx.bit - some namecoin stats
