Trouble Importing Keys to DVS Wallet
« on: January 31, 2015, 11:07:15 AM »

Hi Guys,

I cant for the life of me get my BTS keys imported to my DVS Wallet.

I have tried the console and the GUI tool, both methods indicate success.

I also keep getting a JSON Parse error on the alert icon:

8 JSON Parse error: Unterminated string [show details]

Show details doesn't show anything, I am using the Windows client.

Would this help, run it from the command line interface (cli).

1) check the keys of your current DVS account.
>>> wallet_account_list_public_keys <account_name>

2) use the 'wallet_import_keys_from_json' command. Make sure you've got correct passphrase.
     Previously, it would fail silently if the password is incorrect.
>>> wallet_import_keys_from_json <json_filename> <imported_wallet_passphrase> <account>


3) check the keys of your current DVS account again to see if any keys were added.
>>> wallet_account_list_public_keys <account_name>

You can see the help information for the command with:
>>> help wallet_account_list_public_keys

I couldn't import my keys in 0.6.1 version. The 0.6.2 was supposed to add 'robustness' to the 'wallet_import_keys_from_json' command.
I couldn't wait for 0.6.2, so i downgraded to 0.5.0 just to import the keys, went back to 0.6.1 and replayed the blockchain.

Confirmed that wallet_import_keys_from_json is currently broken; it will be fixed in 0.6.3.

I've just setup a clean DVS client 0.6.2 and followed my notes from way back (BTSX imports of a PTS wallet) using:
Code: [Select]
wallet_import_bitcoin PTS.datSupplying the correct password seems to do something, as it takes some time, then reports "Successfully imported <###> keys from PTS.dat" then proceeds to backup the wallet and begin scanning at block 1. 

In the past I recall seeing each transaction write to the screen during the import process, not here. The scan from block 1 seemed far too short. Forcing a wallet_rescan_blockchain did not turn up any transactions nor balances.

Is this command also a known bug?

I downgraded to 0.5.0, imported my keys via the .JSON command and then upgrade to 0.6.2 successfully.

Thanks for the help.

No this command should work. Transactions will not show up during importing or scanning.

DVS was a 1:1 snapshot of BTS. If you already moved your genesis PTS stake in BTS before the DVS snapshot, then I wouldn't expect this import to give you any funds other than vesting balances.

Yes, of course!  I must export the BTS wallet for import into DVS.  Thanks for the clarifying reminder.
