Can I get an acccount name re-registered to my wallet?
« on: February 28, 2015, 12:05:42 PM »

I'm hoping I didn't do something stupid here. I created a new account and registered it on the blockchain, then sent a good chunk of BTS to it. The new account in the wallet received it just fine. But then my computer crapped out and I had to reinstall Windows. My latest wallet backup was from about a week before I created the new account though, so when I reimported my wallet, it doesn't show the new account name registered to me and it shows that I sent my BTS to "UNKNOWN".

Is there any way to get the new account re-associated to myself?

I can see in my transaction history when I registered the account on the blockchain for the "unknown" account for 0.1 BTS, under details it says "Register account name: [name of my account]", so it at least has some record of me making the new account. But how can I get it to show up in my accounts list?

Xeroc, you're the best man! I thought for sure I would never see those funds again...phew

I'm at work right now, but I'll try going through the website you linked when I get home later. I'll post here if anything comes up.

Thanks!!

Heads up it's possible you might run into the problem discovered in this thread: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=14607.msg189900#msg189900 but it will be fixed in the next version.

Alright, I've successfully re-associated the second account to my wallet. However, the second account shows that it has no funds. I'm not sure if this is the problem you're describing or not Vikram; the thread you linked shows as "missing or off limits" to me.

I also tried the "wallet_recover_transaction" command described in the wiki to recover the transactions that still say they were sent to "unknown", but it doesn't look like "wallet_recover_transaction" is an available command?

Looks like the OP deleted that thread for some reason. But based on your description I think you are probably running into the same problem--your owner key must have been regenerated okay but not your active key.

I can't think of an easy way to recover the active key with the current version, but I will fix wallet_regenerate_keys for the next release and then you should be able to recover your active key and access the funds.

0.7 ended up being an emergency release with only a few essential fixes--the above fix should be in 0.8 now.

Is the "active key not being regenerated" problem fixed in 0.8.1, or will I have to wait for BTS 0.9.0 to finally release? I've still been unable to regain access to my funds since this issue started.

I think the issue I'm having is https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/issues/1413 which is shown as closed, but I don't think it's been implemented in 0.8.1 yet...

Will be fixed in 0.9.
