Yeh i know, old topic and i aint posted for years...

I still have some old DNS wallet stuff knocking about and never claimed anything. Must be worth a bit now. Any mods have any knowledge? Remember anything?

I have a similar problem :
After claim from the genesis block, and register the name. I did not use KeyID until now...
now, I export the KeyID wallet file, and import it into BTS 0.9.2
using console command : wallet_import_keys_from_json c:\dns.json xxxx yyyy
I got a number 0
checking using vesting yyyy, I got [ ]
It look like the key did not import into BTS

Is there any other way to do it?

This was not working for me, it produced an error "wallet is open"
Since no one has explained it simply for the non-developer crowd, here is what I tried that did not error out.

Open Keyid - login - Go to console
type wallet_export_to_json c:\keyidjsonexport

Open Bitshares - login - Go to console
type import_keys_from_json c:\keyidjsonexport Keyidpassword bitsharesusername

>> import_keys_from_json e:\jsonexport Keyidpassword bitsharesusername
10

If it actually works, a number will appear. If you run it again, the number will be 0.

In bitshares console, type rescan

After a few more hours, the keyid balances should appear when you type -  wallet_account_vesting_balances youraccountname
Then for the next 2 years you have to type -  wallet_collect_vested_balances

What a pain. Why can't they just make it vest automatically after keys are imported?

Why is this information not sticky posted at the top of the forum?

wallet_import_keys_from_json <path to json wallet> <password>" was not a command

I typed help in the console but did not find any commands that were close enough to "wallet_import_keys_from_json"

I updated from keyid.info and I have  client version v0.0.5-2-gdba5398 - is there a newer version?

I'm on Windows 8.1

Thanks for your help guys!

Export wallet backup from KeyID
Go to console and do "wallet_import_keys_from_json <path to json wallet> <password>"
followed by "rescan".

Do you see your balance show up?

You need to enter an account name as well. Type "help wallet_import_keys_from_json" to see the specification for the command. And make sure you used the latest version 0.6.0 or 0.6.1.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.
