QT Wallet from an old backup...
« on: June 26, 2017, 08:59:05 am »
Anyone have any experience with or know of a step-thru to update an old wallet properly?

I haven't opened my wallet since 2014.

Do I just download the latest wallet and them copy over some files from the backups?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Backup your wallet.dat and store it somewhere safe.
Download and install groestlcoin 2.13.3
Open your wallet.

The upgrade is straight forward and will update your wallet.dat.

Well, I was able to get into the wallet, and the blockchain is all caught up...

Now, I have to give it a shot at remembering my encrypted password.

Anything I should know before I just start typing in old passwords?

Is there a limit to failures where I will get locked out?

Is there an easier way to enter passwords than the 'change password' option?

Thanks again for any insight. This is the regular GroestlcoinQT wallet.

Are you using Groestlcoin Core v2.13.3?
You can enter your password as many times you want. You wont get locked out.
Good luck
