Trying to Update New OSX Wallet
« on: May 09, 2015, 03:57:47 PM »

I'm trying to update the new wallet on mac osx.  When I dragged the new client into the applications folder, instead of replacing the old file it added a new one since they had different file names.

how do I proceed with the installation if they have different names so as to not lose my coins? 

Is the following correct?

1) Backup Existing Wallet
2) Delete the older version of Bitshares that is already installed
3) Install new version with new name (still points to blockchain/wallet in same locations?)

thanks in advance!

Yes this is correct ... Keep a backup .. maybe also keep the wallets folder in ~/Library/Application Support/BitShares
and also REMEMBER THE PASSPHRASE .. because the private keys are encrypted in all backups!!
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

"maybe also keep the wallets folder in ~/Library/Application Support/BitShares "

So you mean I should keep everything that is already inside ~/Library/Application Support/BitShares X

but then also create the following folder

~/Library/Application Support/BitShares

and put the wallet.dat file there?

What's the reason for that?  Thanks!
