I installed the litcoin-QT wallet application sometime ago, and I honestly can't recall encrypting or setting a passphrase.

Looking at the client I can see that 'Encrypt Wallet', 'Change Passphrase' and 'Export' are all grayed out. Anyone know why that is?



I thought it might be as I have encrypted before, but if that is the case why 'export' and 'change passphrase' be grayed out?

Maybe those functions haven't been implemented yet?

not sure why encrypt wallet would be grayed out, but as far as i can tell export being grayed out is normal behavior.

you can grab your wallet at %APPDATA%\Litecoin if you are running windows, afaik.

That is very strange indeed. They most certainly shouldn't be greyed out.

Already have my wallet.dat in a truecrypt hidden volume stored offline. The thing that is troubling me is that I don't know if this wallet has had a passphrase set / been encrypted.

Reading the following thread, it states that if you encrypt the wallet then you have to re-type the password everytime you send a transaction:

http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/8125/how-can-i-tell-if-my-bitcoin-qt-wallet-is-protected-with-encryption

So maybe that means I have never encypted it. Ideally I should remember, but I just have a blank spot and can't recall.

I hate stuff like this, as just one f**k up and I lose the lot.

I am now comtemplating the following.

1. Install litecoin-qt to a new machine (my laptop)

2. Encrypt (if it will let me)

3. Send all of my balance from my first wallet to the address in the new wallet.

4. Clean out the first wallet and move the new one accross from step 1 to my main machine.

Update in case anyone searches and lands here looking for a solution.

I had an old version of litecoin-QT which had the encrypt sections removed due to some issues in the code. Using the latest version helped.

Here is how I upgraded:

1. Hit Windows Key + R and type %appdata% into the run box.

2. Find the directory called 'Litecoin' in here you should have the wallet.dat file and the blockchain. I backed up the whole directory and renamed it to 'Litecoin_old'

You should now have the following:

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Litecoin

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Litecoin_old

3. Download the latest QT client and unzip it to a new directory

4. Start the new client. It should then pick up your wallet (in the Litecoin directory) and blockchain. Don't do anything until everything is synced (green tick in the bottom right)

5. Now you can encrypt you wallet.

6. If you're happy with everything, then secure delete your old litecoin directory (Litecoin_old) that you copied in step 2.
