How to recover old wallet format 0.9.1.json
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:09:58 pm »
Aloha to all

I have backed up wallet in old format 0.9.1.json which doesn't seem to work with  open ledger wallet.
If anybody has any idea what to do I would be most grateful.

Thank you

you need a 0.9.3(!) export ..

easiest would be to install 0.9.3, import your wallet there and then export as described here
http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration/howto-exporting-wallet.html
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Thank you xeroc,

I have installed  0.9.3c and imported my wallet in to it. It does show my balance but incorrect.
After exporting it I get "BitShares Wallet Backup.json"
When I try to import it in to the Bithsares 2.0 it doesn't recognise it.
Please advise

Thanks  :)

When you say it does'nt recognize it what does that mean? Is there an error message?

Hi svk,

Thank you for your reply 

In Bitshares 2.0 I click on "Restore Wallet from Backup" then "Choose file".
I choose "Bitshares Wallet Backup.json" which is located on my Desktop but I can't open it as "Open" button is light grey colour ( same as  "Bitshares Wallet Backup.json" )  instead of black and is not allowing  me to choose it. Only "Cancel" button is black and it let's me press it but I need "Open" to be black .
I hope you can understand what I am trying to say but if not maybe I could post screen shots.

Thank you kindly
Aloha  :)

I can't tell if it's the system dialog that's not working or the wallet, some screenshots would be nice.
