Hi,

Well, needless to say I'm not too happy with what I've done, I was trying to fix some of the 0-transactions and remove the unspend from the wallet, but now I've gone and corrupted it.  Every time I try to stage the backup I get crazy errors like these:

init message: Verifying blocks...
 block index            2589ms
init message: Loading wallet...
Error reading wallet database: CPrivKey pubkey inconsistency

But when I run pywallet it seems to dump it nicely....maybe 1 error in the whole thing.

...some history, I was running 0.8.2r3 or some shit like that....so what I tried to do is upgrade wallet and salvage wallet, not sure what the fuck happened...but I have 2-3 backups and I can't get any of them running.

Can you uninstall the new version, reinstall the old version and use one of the wallet backups? You could then transfer them to a different computer with a new wallet.

If you are able to dump the keys, go to blockchain.info, create a new wallet and import those keys. This is the fastest way provided you are able to dump the private keys.

Once you are able to import the keys, any balance on them will appear on the wallet.

Try making a separate fresh installation of your client and load the wallet with the fresh installation.

Worst case scenario, manually extract the keys from the wallet make a new wallet with the keys, though hopefully you will not need to do this.
