Hello, after using bitcoin for a few weeks I suddenly started to get this error. I have backed up my wallet in a few places, so I tried to reinstall bitcoin but the error persisted. Any ideas?

C:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin.exe in AppInit()

thanks!

Sounds like your block database is corrupt. Remove all the files in the same directory as your wallet.dat file except the wallet.dat file, restart the client, and wait a few hours for it to catch up.

Thanks. Now I have to find someone to send my change to. I finally had a nice round number.

Something I was wondering while I was looking into Bitcoin... would there be interest in a (non-free) automated recovery tool? I know there's manual processes out there, but how would people feel about a tool that recovered your wallet and then charged you, say, 0.2BTC for doing so?

Not having a round nice number of bitcoins is one of the bigger first world problems I've encountered.

A recovery tool would be nice, but I would also include automation of backups in it if possible. I have no doubt there will be a market for something like that if/when bitcoin goes big, though I doubt I would use it myself unless the cost is extremely small. Hurry up before these feature are added to the official client!

I'm not proud, I'll take it! Smiley

(Although 1KZ9aZb8eqVurhwxjqccqzF2nrPsoETFQb if you really want rid of it Joel)

Well, part of what I'm thinking is that I've looked at RSA key recovery algorithms before. You can't lose much of the key and recover it in sensible time, but I think I have an approach that cover recover a key with minor damage/truncation in useful time.

Yay! Now I have a nice round number again. At least, my client says I do, this transaction might take a while to get out there. Enjoy your 335,208 Satoshis, whenever you get them.

Update: I guess the coins are still too new. The transaction ID will be 07cb9fe0c9f3f7c23451aecd8befa218be7ada66026dbcc826a0a0a8206e36d1 -- when it gets out. I have my client set to defaults, I wonder why it didn't add a transaction fee.

Cheers. I'm new enough to this I'm still populating my block database (135,082 and counting - only 500-ish to go), so suspect that'll be my first hurdle!
