1  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Bought new BTC and shows in my Wallet but will not let me send it out. on: June 19, 2019, 02:44:23 AM
Try making your tx again but click on the “Max” button to choose send everything you have. Then, click “Preview” and see how much you’re paying in fees, and which inputs and outputs your tx has.

See if the amount you received early this morning shows up on the “inputs” section.

Ok it is not showing up in inputs.
So I look in the Addresses folder... Oh no I see the address is still blue and I then OMG!! the address is frozen. So I select unfreeze. Problem solved?Huh

I can now max out send. Why would I address get set to freeze unless I do that? I do not remember ever doing that. When I receive my btc I just copy the address that is in the receive box. Never been a problem before.
I only froze one address once before for a multi-sig transaction but have not used that address since.
So not sure how this happened unless I accidentally froze that address and did not realize it OR could there be some other reason?

And when you guys select an address for reception do you just select the one in the receive box or should I take another step?

So over last 2 (1.6 about) years this is a first time this has happened.

Thank you. This helped me find it. I thought I had looked at everything. I will always check my address I use to make sure it is not frozen.

At this point I would love some help and tech support and will if necessary pay for it.
I want to go step by step.. 

first verify I am using the correct Electrum  - what are the steps?

then second what should I do?

I want to securely make sure I have this coin. Once I do that I will feel some relief in fixing the send problem.

I am no up on reading alot about Electrum but I read enough on this board to know there has been quite a bit a fraud with from bad people stealing btc various ways including using fake Electrum or somehow getting access to their legit wallet on a legit Electrum

If the group or those knowledgeable about Electrum tell me what they would do first and go from there.

Thank you very much.

How many confirmations?

17, so its fully confirmed and I can usually send out my max amount from incoming btc even before fully confirmed.
Let me clarify since I might of been vague in my op: IN the Send box on amount it will not let me add more that $80 worth of btc which is what I had in there previously

Maybe something wrong with the currency USD and the price source? Try to type in satoshis/btc instead of USD.

I was just saying the amount in usd.. I thought the only currency you could use was btc.
Also to answer other poster it will let me put lesser amounts in. I can put larger amounts in but says I do not have fund to send.
I am going to just use fake numbers but lets say
I had .009 of BTC in my wallet.
Let say I bought .080 btc on coinbase. I transferred as I always to wallet after fees .075 btc to wallet. It shows full amount of .0759 btc fully confirmed in my wallet and no transactions since.
But it will only let me transfer or correctly worded SEND up (but less) .009 and I can adjust fee. If I set fee to auto it still is only up to .009
Anyway would it be insecure of me to post screen shots of my history page and my send page. I want to show everyone what I am talking about now but not my history of where every btc Ive received and sent has gone.

5  Bitcoin / Electrum / Bought new BTC and shows in my Wallet but will not let me send it out. on: June 18, 2019, 10:49:45 PM
This morning I bought some btc. I transferred it to my Electrum wallet. The transaction went through and was confirmed and shows currently in my wallet. But when I went to send some out it would not let me send any more than I previously had. It has never done this before. I am very sure after reading on here I am using a correct Electrum download and sig verified so I do not think I am using a bad or phished Electrum (or whatever it is called). The BTC show in my wallet but it wont let me send it out.
I will post extra information if that would be helpful just let me know what I should post (without compromising my security)
Thank you.

Also, if you want to open your old wallet you must use the open button or use the new/restore button from electrum.

Click open and then locate your old wallet.dat now it should work.

I did all that and have it in installed in Programs (x86) but I still get the error message when I try to open my old wallet:

"cannot load wallet the addresses in this wallet are not bitcoin addresses"
 
also get that when I try load backup wallet.

Thank you everyone.. I would like to keep working one this till resolved . I have done everything all have suggested.

I tried to check my wallet plugin folder and I found it in this path C:\Program Files\Electrum\electrum\plugins
So you can't find the plugin folder in user/username/AppData/roaming or even in the temp folder, the temp folder is used only for temporarily write data comes from the running software/app that is why it always created new data folder every time you open the electrum.

This is the right path C:\Program Files\Electrum\electrum\plugins

I guess I was not clear with my original message but the problem was that folder did not exist. Each time I opened Electrum it would create a new folder in that temp area that was like it was suppose to be in Program Files. I did a search and only folders with electrum with all the files only exist when I open electrum and it creates it in the appdata/temp file. None in Program files. I have since installed it again but it created the new folder in Program File (x86) folder. But will not let me open old wallet as explain in previous message.

As far as I know you can keep the default path also you can change the path too while installing Electrum. Not sure which plugin you are playing with.

So I downloaded the version again off https://electrum.org/#download and reinstalled it and it created Electrum Testnet folder and I open it works fine but when I try to open my old wallet on this new installation I get this message:

"cannot load wallet the addresses in this wallet are not bitcoin addresses"

But I can still open that wallet using my desktop icon for that wallet.
I have 2 Electrums installed now. The new one I was able to put in that plugin.
So why cannot the new installation of Electrum open my old wallet?
11  Bitcoin / Electrum / Electrum creates a new folder each time I open it windows 10 cannot use plugins on: April 25, 2019, 10:53:11 PM
I've been using Electrum for a while but I am by no means an expert. So I wanted to use this plugin created by someone for use with multi-sig.
However I cannot put the plugin script where it belongs because I found out each time I open Electrum it creates a whole new folder to run everything in
user/username/AppData/local/temp/(some new folder each time)
So that is where the plugin goes in the plugin folder but I think you have to restart Electrum for new plugins.
Is there a way to reinstall Electrum where it uses the same folder for its files or a way to make it do that now with my current wallet?
Thank you.
12  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: I get a BAD signature when I try to verify Windows Installer from electrum.org/ on: February 20, 2019, 11:51:31 PM
Once you download the executable, create a text file in the same directory.  Copy the signature into that text file, and save it.  Then rename the text file to <electrum-3.3.4.exe.asc> and try again.

OK thanks that worked. I guess the way I was trying to verify was not correct. Thank you both TryNinja and DireWolfM14 for your help.
I wanted to be extra careful because I got a popup on my Electrum when I sent some coin saying I had to update then came here and saw all the messages about people getting phished so... you know.
Thanks.
13  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: I get a BAD signature when I try to verify Windows Installer from electrum.org/ on: February 20, 2019, 11:30:46 PM
Download the file again from ELECTRUM.ORG

Is the link I provided in the op correct or not? https://electrum.org/#download

Thats where I'm getting the files. And that was where I got the link to Thomas v public key.

I'll try again but now sure why when I use GNU Privacy Assistant to copy the signature and I hit verify and this is what I see:



I'll try again but I am trying to verify that the links for Thomas public key are correct that are posted at https://electrum.org/#download
and that link is https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spesmilo/electrum/master/pubkeys/ThomasV.asc

I guess I am verifying it incorrectly but now sure why.

Thank you
14  Bitcoin / Electrum / I get a BAD signature when I try to verify Windows Installer from electrum.org/ on: February 20, 2019, 10:32:20 PM
I imported Thomas V public key from a link provided on https://electrum.org/#download
and it sent me to https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spesmilo/electrum/master/pubkeys/ThomasV.asc and it imported 2 keys:
ThomasV <thomasv1@gmx.de>
Animazing <animazing@gmail.com>

I tried to verify the signature from the Standalone Executable and Windows Installer and my GNU came back with BAD signature.

I have not installed any update yet and would like some help in case I'm doing anything wrong. As of now I'm using version 3.2.2

Thank you.
