Armory has stopped working, how can I take my encrypted wallet and get the first like 10 private keys from it?

Open Armory in offline mode (there's a shortcut installed on both Windows an Linux when you use the installer), then use "Backup Individual Keys" to get access to all the keys in the wallet. 

I try, but armory just goes so incredibly slow and freezes, which is my problem.

It goes that slow in offline mode?   There's very little it should be doing in offline mode.  Anything unusual about your system?  Can you send me a log file?

If you can get into Armory, it's under "File"-->"Export Log File".  If not, you can just go straight to your home directory:

C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Armory\Armory.exe.log
(the .log file name may be slightly different).

It's great you have a paper backup.... using that will be our last resort (basically, you need a working version of Armory in order to use it).

Interesting.  Can you do me a favor and make a copy of the Armory shortcut on your desktop, then right click on the copy and add the following string to the "Target:"

Quote
--offline --skip-version-check --skip-online-check

Make sure there's a space between the end of the existing "Target" and that extra text.  Then try running it again.

Also, it looks like you're using Windows Server 2008, which theoretically should work but not everyone has had success.  I never figured out what was different about it...

Yeah, it's still running painfully slow. Not sure why, i'm not doing anything big. Checking in Task Manager to make sure there's nothing suspicious.

EDIT: It's all <20% CPU and <50% memory. I have 8 gigs of RAM

I'm trying to use armoryengine to find the balance of some addresses.  I tried following the example from import500kaddresses, but get an error.

Code:
from armoryengine import *
wlt = Cpp.BtcWallet()
wlt.addAddress_1_( hex_to_binary('9c633b56899c633b56899c633b56899c633b5689') )  # hash160
TheBDM.registerWallet(wlt)
start = RightNow()
TheBDM.setBlocking(True)
TheBDM.setOnlineMode(True)
print 'Loading blockchain took %d seconds' % int(RightNow()-start)
wlt.setBlockchainSyncFlag(BLOCKCHAIN_READONLY)
wlt.syncWithBlockchain()
print 'Full sync at %d seconds' % int(RightNow()-start)
print 'Wallet balance is: %s' % coin2str(wlt.getBalance('Spendable'))



Loading blockchain took 916 seconds

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/user/BitcoinArmory/balance.py", line 16, in <module>
    wlt.setBlockchainSyncFlag(BLOCKCHAIN_READONLY)
  File "/home/user/BitcoinArmory/CppBlockUtils.py", line 1087, in <lambda>
    __getattr__ = lambda self, name: _swig_getattr(self, BtcWallet, name)
  File "/home/user/BitcoinArmory/CppBlockUtils.py", line 51, in _swig_getattr
    raise AttributeError(name)
AttributeError: setBlockchainSyncFlag

Any ideas?  It looks like the permissions are fine and I deleted all the lock files I could find.

Ugh.   I need to update all that old example code.   That particular file is ancient and uses functions that don't exist anymore.  I'm pretty sure most of the examples in extras/sample_armory_code.py is good though.  At least, the methods for loading and accessing the blockchain.

Mooshire... the only way I can help you is if you can get Ubuntu working somewhere and use it to access your wallet.

The easiest thing to do would probably be to download an Ubuntu 10.04 Live CD and the Armory Offline Bundle for Ubuntu 10.04.  Boot into the live session, download that offline bundle desktop, unpack it, click the install script, then run Armory and Import your paper backup.  Once it's imported, you can open the wallet and go to "backup individual keys".  Click on "Show Unused Keys", and you'll have access to all of them.  

I don't know any other (secure) way to access your private keys.  You have to be able to run Armory in offline mode somewhere.  And then you will have access to them.

Alternatively, rather than rebooting the system into a live session, you could download VirtualBox and install an Ubuntu 10.04 VM (you can just add a "CD" device and point it to the downloaded *.iso).  Then you can use it to access Armory the way I described.  

In fact, you wouldn't even have to deal with the offline bundle, because you'd be connected to the internet and the regular .deb file would install fine.

What about ram though?

You don't need online mode to get your private keys out of your wallet.  If you are in offline mode, RAM usage is nil.

It just takes a few minutes to install a linux virtualbox.  At worst, if you trust someone on the website you could encrypt your recovery key with their public key and they could send you the funds to another address.
