Importing Keys
« on: March 07, 2016, 02:13:51 pm »
Hi, I've followed the import instructions but when I select the 0.9.3c backup file for import....the Muse client give the message to use a BTS 1.0 export file instead.

I'm running the 1.0.160208 version of the Muse windows client and the file I am trying to import a .json exported from BTS 1.0

Please could someone recommend anything else I might try?  Thank you.

How did you export the backup from 0.9.3c?
Through the menu or the console?

If you used the menu option, please use the console method instead

Hi there!

Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm not skill enough to import my .json backup to the new client.

Anybody could send me instructions or link to import my old backup .json format into the new version 2.0?

Cheers!

Hi Cube!

Thanks for your help.

I followed the steps, but it keeps saying that I'm using an invalid wallet format.
I did a Backup using my old version BitsharesX almost 16moths ago, and that's what I got: "BitShares X Wallet Backup.json".
But, it seems not so easy to import that extension using the wallet management console in BitShares2-light.

Any clue for a dummy?

Do not do a backup.  It does not work.

Do a 'export to json file' from the bts1 wallet Console.  I think you missed this step.

Hi Cube!

Thanks again!

I don't have the possibility of running my old version of Bts1 due to the fact that the HD was corrupted, so I'm trying to import my backup from a usb pendrive through a new Mac and using the new version of Bts2. I'm not able to do a export to json from the Bts1 console.
Is there anyway to import the backup from a usb considering that the extension is .json?

Cheers!

Not that I know of.  The information stored is different.
