Hello, I have an old Multibit classic wallet.dat file.  I used to just copy the .dat file right into the directory of Multibit classic folder and then was able to decrypt it using the GUI. (Mac)

My problem is now I am unable to find a download for Multibit classic to do it this way.  My understanding is, I could use something like openSSL to do this. I just don't feel I have the technical ability to do so. I was wondering if there was an easier way?

The classic versions are still available here -> https://multibit.org/releases.html

If you want to switch to MB HD a transaction would be the safest way to transfer funds.

Sorry I worded that all wrong.

What I am trying to do is extract the private key from an encrypted wallet.dat file.  Its turning out to be a lot more complicated then I thought. Any tips?

Open in multibit classic and use the "export private keys" option. If you dont set up a password you will end up with a cleartext file that has the prviate keys. I dont think it gets any easier.

Wow, how foolish of myself. That was very easy.

All I had to do was import the .key file and put in the password. Thank you.
