Hello

After some time I want to login into my wallet. It just came with an update and now I cant acces to my wallet.

I come to the menu "Select wallet", and cant choose the "I want to use an existing wallet".

I lost my wallet words in a accident, so i cant restore my wallet.

Hope for some help

Best Regards Imty103

MultiBit Classic... or MultiBit HD?

I assume by your use of "wallet words" that you are using MultiBit HD? Where did you get this update? As the software hasn't been updated in a very long time... and has in fact been discontinued by the developer: https://www.multibit.org/

It's been over a year since I last logged in. I know that the Icon was white now it's green.

I'm using MultiBit HD

If you can find the datadir for MultiBit HD (https://multibit.org/help/hd0.4/files.html) you should be able to find some mbhd.wallet.aes file(s). If you know your wallet password then you should be able to use one of the wallet.aes file and use some python scripts to either extract the wallet words or the private keys.

Recover seed using: https://github.com/gurnec/decrypt_bitcoinj_seed
Extract keys using: https://github.com/HardCorePawn/multibit_recovery (use the find_unspent_multiBitHD_TXes.py script)

Easiest would be to recover the seed using the decrypt_bitcoinj_seed script and then "restore" it into the latest version of Electrum (use "BIP39 seed" option and derivation path m/0' during "restore")


If you don't know your password... and you don't have the wallet words... your coins are effectively lost.
