Source is in OP please stop asking
Hello after using Vanitygen (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=25804.0) for the first time I realized that it could be fairly hard for users to import their newly found address, and I'll admit I had some troubles myself. So I decided why not create a program to make it easier for users?

Following features:
- Import private key
- Add a label to it from the program

Requirements:
- Windows with .Net 3.5 installed (Tested on Windows 7)
- Bitcoin client running with bitcoin.conf already configured.

Please not that when you import your new key you will notice that Bitcoin may freeze for a minute or two, this is normal.

Source: https://github.com/TYDIRocks/BitcoinPrivKeyImporter

If you feel I deserve a donation please donate here: 1TydiD57N9m54SrX7XNWhNTzJLN4msJNj

If I feel enough users use my program I will try to update it with bulk adding, a better gui and other requests.

Last of all, PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK Smiley

It's coded in .net so that's why it's an exe. Is there a certain place you would like the source posted?

I don't want it. I don't use windows.
But you can be sure people will want it. It's a bad idea to run closed source programs that interface with bitcoin.

You can always use github or some similar service.

I tried decompiling it, but it just couldn't pull code. This is about as far as my decompiler will let me go http://gyazo.com/f153e1ad603fcb756026ad7b3f195b86

I am in the process of setting up a Github account to post the source.

EDIT: Okay the source is in the OP.

How about pool mode so that 3rd parties can create the key for the user securely?

I'll look into that. I mostly made this program to use with Vanitygen and make it simpler to import what was from there. Would I have to create a miner for this pool? Because I'll admit my .Net knowledge is not that advanced.

Why not simply use the Bitcoin client? It already has the option to add private keys.

Help -> Debug window -> Console:
importprivkey <privkey>

Certainly this is better than some program created by a random person.
