Hello! i have a problem with wallet. I had win7 like main OS.  And a few days ago I installed win8 onto new disk. Last bitcoin-qt was v0.6.2-beta. Wallet was locked py password.
I installed win8, installed last version of client. Put wallet.dat in to the bitcoin data dir, and client won't start.

ERROR:root:Couldn't open wallet.dat/main. Try quitting Bitcoin and running this
again.
The client is closed, there is no process in task manager. Tryed to use "-rescan" option, the same result.
Tryed to do like here  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=11331.0 - the result is the same...
any ideas what to do? it willl be so sad to lose half year bitcoins...((

let the new version create a new wallet.
boot with win7 and send the funds to you new address(new wallet).

Tips are welcome at this address 18DVZkpSwmejPjekX3QMKvRRtR8Bfx65LN.

[Edit: Did you launch which -detachdb first?   I'm not sure if a new machine with the same name is the same as moving to a new directory but it won't hurt to try -detachdb.]

That doesn't look good though.   Do you have any other backups (even older backups would have the keys for the next 100 transactions that were made)?

If not, you may want to try loading using the v0.6.x client and see if the problem persists with that release as well.

The log says that it was trying to rename the file.  Check your permissions on the wallet.dat file, and possibly the directory.  You should have full control of C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\ but readable by no other user.

Coinsbank: Left money in their costodial wallet for my signature.  Then they kept the money.

After renaming successfully, if that error appears it might mean that the DB hadn't shut down properly, and now without the log files it cannot recover.  But it isn't even getting past the rename it looks like.   

I don't know Windows 8 ..., is there such a thing as an "admin account" ?

yes there is an admin account. i can run cmd.exe with admin rights.
i have restored from old system:
wallet.dat (size 183Kb)
database\log.0000027152 (size 10Mb)
database\log.0000027153 (size 10Mb)

it these are logfiles of db?

Yes, try launching bitcoin-qt (from the comand line) with those three files.  If there is a problem the debug.log should give more info.

Well, hopefully you have made (yet another) backup of the wallet and the logs so that no matter what happens you can get back to the point you are at right now.

But just launch bitcoin-qt  from the command line and see if it can start.  If not, debug.log will give info that will help determine what to do next.

Maybe detachdb might be needed.

  $ Bitcoin-Qt -detachdb=1  [Edited]

seems like log file is corrupted?

Well it looks like it is trying to load the DB from Bitcoin directory and the log from 222.   Which means it looks like the -detachdb isn't doing its job.  Which, looks to be correct because I gave the wrong syntax.  Should be "-detachdb=1", sorry.

Can you try that again?

Also, worst case scenario ... v0.7.1 has a "-salvagewallet"

* -salvagewallet command-line option, which moves any existing wallet.dat
  to wallet.{timestamp}.dat and then attempts to salvage public/private
  keys and master encryption keys (if the wallet is encrypted) into
  a new wallet.dat. This should only be used if your wallet becomes
  corrupted, and is not intended to replace regular wallet backups.

trying to do what client says. deleted all files and dirs except wallet.dat

Just to exclude the chance that a separate -datadir wasn't tested with -salvagewallet,

rename your
  C:\Users\n.belenkov\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin
to something else (e.g., Bitcoin.old)

Then create a new, empty
 C:\Users\n.belenkov\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin

and then in there place your wallet.dat from the backup
and then try to do the following (without -datadir):
   bitcoin-qt.exe -salvagewallet

If that gives the same thing (unexpected file type or format) then that wallet.dat just does not seem to be readable.
Do you have any older backups of it?

I know you already tried fixwallet.py, as described here:

   
[GUIDE] Simple wallet recovery using bitcointools
 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=11331.0

There is a tool that searches a disk device for strings that are bitcoin private keys.   

I'm not sure if it will access a wallet.dat directly.

So maybe the file isn't readable as a BDB database but perhaps enough of the data inside is still instact and the private keys could be discovered:

Bitcoin private key/wallet.dat data recovery tool!
