Can change passphrase but cant use walletpassphrase!
« on: July 19, 2014, 07:09:02 PM »

Using Protoshares v0.8.6.0-unk-beta
Win 7

I can go to Settings -> Change Passphrase and successfully change my passphrase but i cannot use walletpassphrase PASSHERE 60

"Error: The wallet passphrase entered was incorrect. (code -14)" is the error i receive when i use the wallpassphrase command

Am i missing something? What im trying to do is use dumpprivekey command to import my keys into BTSX client.

Thank you!

using correct upper and lower case?

are there any symbols in your passphrase?

are you doing this from protoshare console or command line?

Yeah, using the GUI i changed my passphrase to a very simple lower case only word to verify that i did indeed know the passphrase (it was a crazy combo of upper/lower/symbol/etc..)

Now im trying to use the "walletpassphrase" command to unlock the wallet so i can use the "dumpprivekey" command to export keys to be able to import into BTSX client.

this doesn't directly address what you're asking about, but why not drag and drop the wallet.dat into the client?

Okay so i upgraded to the latest version of BTSX client and tried the import option under the Advance tab. The response i get is "Unable to decrypt wallet". But i know the wallet passphrase because im able to change it in the Protoshares client. Not sure what to do next.

are you unlocking your btsx wallet from btsx using walletpassphrase with your btsx password before trying to import it?

you don't need to unlock from protoshares client.

Fixed

I reloaded a backup wallet.dat to for Protoshares client, then changed the passphrase so i could unlock the wallet to dump the private key. Then was able to import the private key into BTSX client.

I now how to back up my BTSX wallet (to a json file) but how would i import this json file should i need to use this backup in the future?
