If its called wallet.dat, its definitely Bitcoin Core. AFAIK, no other wallet other than Core adopts wallet.dat as a backup standard.

Install Bitcoin Core[1], navigate to %appdata%/Bitcoin and replace the wallet.dat with the wallet.dat you've got.

Hey ranochigo, thank you for the quick response.

I allready have installed BT-Core,

and the bootstrap data is located on E:\BT-Bootstrap.

I replaced the new wallet.dat with my old one but BT-Core edited the wallet.dat it is now 664kb in size.

My Blockchain is not up to date but its on 2015 and there are no balance shown Sad

I hope you made multiple copies of your old wallet and didn't just move it Shocked
you could just run the client offline mode, disconnected from internet, and list all your receiving addresses
then you can check the address on online explorer, could save you time and tons of data usage
well you can still do it now, check on explorer, to make sure you really don't have any BTC on your addresses

Go to the console and input
Code:
listaddressgroupings

This should return all your addresses, including your change addresses. Now go to your online block explorer of choice (I prefer Blocktrail.com, but you might have a different preference), and search each address that's listed from the console command. You don't have to wait to sync since those sites are already synced. If you do find a balance and are impatient, you can
Code:
dumpprivkey [your address goes here]

to get the private key (again without syncing), and import it into an SPV wallet such as Electrum which doesn't need to sync the entire blockchain.
