Your wallet shows
a lock: mean that you lock your wallet with password ( it’s normal )
2 computer screens with an X: mean that your wallet haven’t sync with network yet. You may sync it first before receiving your sprouts
I sync network when my wallet is new. So i can’t help much in this case. I know your furious over the wallet. It take me like a month to install the wallet properly. That why the dev team is developing new wallet
You are correct, the sprouts.exe and the dlls should be in their own directory, and then you can create a shortcut to the sprouts.exe file to then start the wallet from anywhere you want.
That “roaming” directory which is initially created and can be located at: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Sprouts
will contain the sprouts.conf file that you create, plus other files like: wallet.dat, database, blk0001.dat, blkindex.dat, and so on.
