Sure - are you referring to uploading Armoryqt.exe.log ?
The file from File > Export Log File.

Got the file. What's the best way to get it to you.  I don't see a file upload option among the icons under the reply option.
OtisG
Open the file in a text editor. Copy the contents to http://pastebin.com/. If it is too large, get as much as you can from the bottom. Then post the link to the paste here.

Howdy,
I need help please.

I installed the new BitCoin Core v0.13.1 with no problems at all.  
Runs great.

The problem is the new Armory 0.95.

I installed the Armory 0.95 update (long time Armory user), but the "Initialize Bitcoin Engine" is just spinning.
It never gets to "Build Databases" or "Scan Transaction History"
I've let it run 8hrs to no effect, so definitely not working correctly.
I see that it has successfully spawned BitcoinD under task manager.
This is running under Windows 7 x64 bit.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
OtisG



I have W7 x64 as well and also ran into a hitch when I upgraded to 0.13.1/0.95. The following steps somehow worked for me (YMMV):

1. Rename old Armory data folder (serves as backup).

2. Uninstall the previous version and install Armory 0.95 from scratch.

3. Start Armory 0.95 in Offline Mode and "Skip" creating a wallet. Change settings accordingly [File/Settings...] and save it. Close Armory.

4. Copy watchonly wallet files from the old Armory data folder to the new one.

5. Start Bitcoin-Qt and let it sync.

6. Start Armory 0.95 and let it build a new DB.

As long as you don't intend to move your Armory data folder to a new location (refer to an issue I presented earlier on this thread), 0.95 should be peachy for you from here on.

Visdude, thanks for the suggestions.  I did those steps, but to no avail.  Same endless spinning wheel.

Achow, thanks for your help, but I think i'll just wait on 0.95.1.  
If it doesn't work, I'll move on to a different wallet.
I just don't have time for endless debugging.

The good news is I successfully upgraded from 93.3 to 94.1.
It failed at first, then I read a blurb to rename the ...\armory\databases directory first for any upgrade from 93.3
Then the upgrade worked.

AND, it saved me 85GB of SSD space  Shocked after I moved the renamed directory to an archive drive.

I then tried updating to 95.0 from 94.1, but I get the same spinning initializing wheel.
Back down to 94.1 for now.
I'll wait for 95.1 to see if that resolves the upgrade problem from 94.1.

IIRC, you need to clear the DB again when upgrading to 0.95, like you did when upgrading to 0.94. Try that if 0.95.1 (which should be out very soon) doesn't fix your woes.

Just did the same upgrade.  You have to remove the database directory again.  It stays small (but not quite as small as in 0.94.1, although still tiny compared to the bad old days).

I tried doing a clean install of 0.95.1 and follow the post above, but no luck. Still stuck on build databases and doesn't build the database.

It only works if I start bitcoin-qt and Armory separately.

hi there,

reddit pointed me to the updated armory, so glad it's still going! I've been trying to upgrade from .93 and bitcoin .11 to the latest version .95.1 and the latest core 13.1

I've had a problem whereby it's trying to scan the blockchain (I know it's up to date), and saying 1 second on scanning transactions and not going further. I tried to rescan and rebuild databases, and nothing happens when I reboot (although I did get the pop up welcome message).

I'm going to try and reinstall completely to see if that fixes it, but if I'm doing something obviously wrong, please let me know.

Thanks

Jamie

Do you see the progress bar move at all or does it stay stuck at something like 1%?

First, you need to delete the entire folder named "databases" inside of armory's datadir. Then try again.

If you do not see any of the progress bars moving and stuck at 1%, that usually means that the ArmoryDB isn't running or crashed. Stop Armory and make sure that there are no processes named ArmoryDB running. Then try again.

This might be just a problem with the progress bars only, I've experienced something similar.

Does the process (building Db/tx scan) fill all the progress bars convincingly until it gets to the transaction scan stage? If yes, I would leave it to continue despite how unconvincing the cosmetics are, they're literally just that, cosmetic. The best way to follow the progress reliably is to view the dbLog.txt file continuously (tail -f <path/filename> if you're using Linux).

Bitcoind is running in the background, but ArmoryDB isn't.

I change the setting in Armory to not have bitcoind running. I start bitcoin-qt, let it sync, then run Armory. ArmoryDB command window immediately pops up and connects to bitcoin-qt. It manages the Armory database then it becomes fully functional.

Go to the armory data directory (os dependent) and delete the "databases" folder. Then start Armory.

So I have the same problem as PeZ.

However, I'll try to log into C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Armory and delete the databases folder.

Then when I boot up Armory, it does the wallet consistency check, Initialising Bitcoin Engine bar is full green, and scan transaction history says 0% and 1 second.

I do see the databases folder being created, but there aren't any files in it. I'll leave it here for a couple of minutes and see if it starts to boot

Stop Armory and open up task manager. Make sure that any process with the name "ArmoryDB" is killed. Then try again.

Thanks so much. Have one more quick question.  If I do a "receive" and enter in a comment, when that address gets a deposit the comment doesn't show up in the comments section.  Anyone have any ideas?
