How to Get WDC from Old PC to New PC?

Recommended Posts

I've just updated my desktop to a lappy.

I've downloaded the new WDC wallet but have no clue how to get it to pull over my WDC. I have backed up wallet from old pc and have on thumb drive.

Now what?

Thanks in advance.

When installing new wallet it  makes you choose location of blockchain directory. If you missed it just edit Daemons.cfg and find variable DataDirectory.

Just copy you wallet.dat to that directory and execute new wallet. It will take some time to index

I have similar problem. The PC is still the same, but I have wallet qt 8.5.1(around 3-4 years old) and I did not start this wallet at least 3 years. I have downloaded the newest version of wallet and I can not put my coins there. I have *.dat file from previous version, the download of complete block chain is done(new wallet). I have installed blockchain directory on different place from old one wallet. I tried to copy .dat file into a few folders of new installation but there is still nothing. What should I do? thx for reply

Alternatively, post the contents of Daemons.cfg

I have just finished restoring my old wallet successfully. I have enquired the same that you in here.

 

Addition to Berzerk's reply considering placing your wallet.dat, for me that folder is called "WorldcoinChain". Place your wallet.dat here.

The folder contains subfolders:

/blocks

/chainstate

/database

Try doing what I ended up doing, which is sending the coins from your old wallet to the new wallet address. Test first with 1 coin. Then 100, etc. Let both wallets sync first and then give it a crack!
