~/.bitcoin$ bitcoind dumpprivkey blah
error: {"code":-32601,"message":"Method not found"}

~/.bitcoin$ bitcoind getinfo

}

I've tried moving the wallet.dat file to a machine with a newer bitcoind installation, but it isn't working.  Any idea how to fix this?

Have you tried using pywallet to dump the private key?

Alternatively, upload your wallet.dat to blockchain.info.

run
Code:
bitcoind listaddressgroupings
identify those addresses containing non-zero bitcoins/satoshi
use
Code:
bitcoind dumpprivkey ADDRESS
to get the privatekeys

That's what I originally tried, however dumpprivkey wasn't implemented in this Bitcoind, it was too old. I ended up using pywallet to extract the private key, apparently its the only way.

Alternatively, upload your wallet.dat to blockchain.info.
It kept on saying that I entered the wrong password, even though I was entering the correct one. Maybe its an old format of wallet.dat? *shrugs*
