the easiest thing is install.bat and install64.bat

I think even my moronic minions can understand that.

It's easy if you know which you use
I for one absolutely don't know my architecture

New 64bit-friendly Windows installer:

Same steps:

Complete-update feature: run update.bat and all the files will be updated, ie you will have to download pwi only once whatever the future changes I'll make

I tried to install it on a Windows XP x86 ( last time I was on a Windows 7 x64 ) and it is giving this error:
'twisted' package is not installed, pywallet web interface can't be launched

I also tried to install it manually ( the 'twisted' package ), but it is giving the same error.


And also, there is another set that can be useful:
%ProgramFiles%

Example:
On the english Windows, it is probably:
"c:\program files"
On the italian windows, it is:
"c:\programmi"
( I don't know on other languages )

On Windows 7 x64 there is also:
%ProgramFiles(x86)%
On the Windows XP  %ProgramFiles(x86)% doesn't exist Smiley

So this is another way to make it working on every architecture and every language.

It was because of a temporary link to one of the install file, it's ok now
Could you launch update.bat, then install.bat?
I tried on a XP of mine, it runs as expected

Are you sure c:\programmi is not just a shortcut to c:\program files? This is the case on a french windows

I'll check it tomorrow.
Anyway, "c:\programmi" is a folder on the italian "windows xp", I don't know if it's a link on the italian "windows 7" ( my windows 7 is in english language )

Ok, I just checked, I confirm that C:\programmi is a "link" on the italian "windows 7", but it's a real "folder" on italian "windows xp".

How do I know if my wallet is corrupted? It's a stupid question, but I'd rather be on the safe side before I start sending out my vanity-addresses to people.

valid question, if you know how to run a brand new windows install or linux live cd or somthing, send a test amount of coins to a made address.

then on the brand new OS run bitcoin and let all blocks download. then disconnect the internet and never reconnect it after this point

now import the keys into the wallet with pywallet and slap it in the bitcoin client. now run the bitcoin client with the -rescan parameter. if you see the coins, your set, if not something messed up. if you ran the whole thing with a live cd your just turn the computer off and your good, if you installed an OS, use DBAN to wipe it out.

Jackjack,

I was wondering if pywallet supports 22-character "mini private keys" as I have been distributing on Casascius Physical Bitcoins and which I am trying to encourage as an adopted standard.  Shorter keys is a universally desirable attribute both for hand-typed keys, and even QR codes (due to lower dot density, they are more readable and more dots can be spent on error correction).

If it is not yet implemented, the algorithm is simple: take the SHA256 of the 22 characters.

Validation is also fairly simple: always base58 alphabet, first character is always 'S'.  A short algorithm is described in the Wiki for detecting typos, see "Mini private key format".

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

How will pywallet work with 0.4.0 client just released?

I've used pywallet several times for importing a vanitygen key into my wallet.
But now that I'm using an encrypted wallet I expect pywallet is going to choke.

Any plans to add support for the new version?
I suspect that supporting the encryption would be difficult. Is there an alternate way to solve this problem. Maybe the json-rpc interface can be used to import new keys after unlocking?

it might work, but wait for confirmation before you use it.

Great program.  I downloaded it, installed it and used it to browse my wallet and import a private key.  It worked great.  A small donation is on its way.

One very small feature request:  Could you add the ability to import the mini private key format described here:  https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mini_private_key_format

All you have to do is take the SHA256 of the mini key to get the full private key and then go from there.  Thanks, and keep up the fantastic work.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

I started looking at this as a way to import bitbills and other printed addresses without having to patch the client. I'm on Lion though and the broken bsddb thing is a pain. I use homebrew instead of mac ports, and eventhough I have a separate install of python, I still get "ImportError: No module named _bsddb." I'm moving my wallet onto another system soon, so its not a big deal for me (and not your fault).

One question. How does this handle the encryption that comes with 0.4?

Tried adding a private key. Broke my wallet. Seems to dump most of it just fine, though.

Would be great if it was possible to bulk import private keys dumped from another wallet, in order to merge all keys from an old wallet into a new one.  

Alternatively, does anyone know how to script this from a wallet dump using grep/sed etc?

edit: Also, how to check the balance of multiple addresses in one hit with copy and paste?

Hi there!
I had to leave for some time, sorry for that
I won't have as much time as before but I won't leave for months anymore

The priority is of course to make pywallet able to deal with encrypted wallets
I can't give you any ETA but I'll do my best

Btw, thanks for your pull requests on Github, I'll check and commit them
