I backed up the existing files with the working QT wallet (so I can get back to a working wallet) and started again with 2.0.1 install. It built the directories in the desired location, downloaded the blockchain and initialized the browser. So far so good, however when I shutdown the wallet via command, swap in my old wallet.dat for the new (data directory), start the wallet via command, the correct wallet contents doesn't come up, it remains empty. What am I missing? (Until my wallet.dat data appears, I'm holding off on the patch.)
Shut down the wallet and then restarted the PC. When I started the wallet again I waited a little and tried to access it via the browser interface and wasn't getting a connection, waited a little longer, retired and still no dice. Decided to roll back to my saved files, fired up the basic QT wallet again, came up immediately with the correct data and receive address. If there are some instructions somewhere on how to replace the wallet.dat file, I'm interested. Seem to be having trouble recovering from shutdown/reboot as well. Also wish Avast Antivirus didn't like the NEOS QT wallet so much, soon as I fire it up Avast pounces and I still can't find the way into it's stinking chest. In order to copy in and activate a replacement, I have to shut down Avast's shields.
By the way, when I enter the NEOS shutdown command, something doesn't shut down. Nothing I can recognize as related to NEOS shows up in Task Manager, but it holds the NEOS folder open and interferes with system reboot.
