everytime I try to start bitcoin 3.13 I get an error message "Error loading blkindex.dat"  I am running XP
How do I fix this?  It was running fine then I rebooted the computer and now I keep getting this error.


I tried to uninstall the program and reinstall it but same message.  Evidentally bitcoin puts
 a config file on your computer that doesn't get removed when the program is uninstalled

Based on my experience tonight, you don't need to delete the database directory (or any files in it)

Ha, i found the solution

open "start" "run" then type cmd

copy & paste "   %APPDATA%\BitCoin   "

also descriibed in:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Securing_your_wallet#Windows
https://de.bitcoin.it/wiki/Sichere_deine_Geldb%C3%B6rse#Windows


also I think you just need to delete blkindex.dat


CHEERS,
Jan
