Hey, I'm looking to setup 1 masternode on Vultr Instances on Windows, Firstly has anyone figured out if this will work on Windows yet? Secondly I barely setup my first node so dumbed down terms/steps

Can I have a step by step guide on how to use this tool in correlation with Taos masternode Guide? I've setup 1 node with his guide but I want more! This is simple as 1200 nodes have been made and get updated, but I'm not one with the Windows - better on OSX.

Any help would be appreciated!

Why would you want to use windows to host your masternode when the guide as is is simple enough to follow to do is securely on linux?

Good question.... Maybe because I have one setup on Windows already? I do have another PC with a fresh Ubuntu install but that would splinter my masternode from the rest - How easy is it to transfer a masternode and are you talking about Tao's setup guide or this guide. And If you are talking about Tao's guide, will I need additional steps? as I do think it's made for windows

Talking about Tao's guide. It's directed at windows users but with the remote masternode secured via linux vs a windows instance. Are you running your masternode hot?

No I'm running it with a Hot/Cold Setup with the Local on Windows and the remote on a linux VPS Instance.

Oh, then you followed the guide. So you aren't actually setting up a second one on windows, but rather ubuntu. Just rename your wallet.dat on local and follow the guide from the beginning again. When you get to the config part of things, name it something other than the name of the other conf file (ex, mn1.conf, mn2.conf). Then when you launch just remember to rename the appropriate wallet file back to wallet.dat and launch using the appropriate config. You could also create multiple data directories and create shortcuts using the -datadir argument. Looks like the -wallet argument will be added back in according to github.

Okay I am setting up another on my Windows pc with an Ubuntu Vultr instance, is this how I would set it up:
Create second directory: ./darkcoin2
Create Windows .bat file that resides in the original ./darkcoin folder and will force darkcoin-qt to open a new wallet in the ./darkcoin2 folder (I can just open up the original by )
Follow Tao's guide for remaining setup of MN with slight altercations to the commands to match the new ./darkcoin2 folder
Rinse and repeat for more masternodes.
When Updating: I can use this tool on my local Windows pc? Or do I just need to use Tao's updating guide?
For creating more MN: Is there an easier way?

What exactly is this -wallet argument, could you elaborate?

./darkcoin is a format on linux, not windows. Further, you need a new ip address for each masternode, you can't put a second daemon on the same ip, regardless if it is in a different folder. The wallet argument allows you to run the client specifying the name of the wallet you want to use. So you could use something like wallet2.dat and reference it in your shortcut with -wallet=C:\Darkcoin\wallet2.dat

Slight correction:
-wallet option allows only wallets that reside in datadir folder
Code:
-wallet=<file>         Specify wallet file (within data directory) (default: wallet.dat)
So usage will be
Code:
-datadir=C:\Darkcoin\ -wallet=wallet2.dat
or simply
Code:
-wallet=wallet2.dat
if you use default folder and wallet2.dat is sitting there
