Hi

I'm running bitcoin-qt version 0.6.2 on windows 7.  I'm testing the JSON API.  On testnet everything worked as expected, but now - on prodnet - I can't get importprivkey to work.  It returns the error message: "Error adding key to wallet" for the private key: 5KBn7DJRBdzdkGEo78n5M8gULKes9FTiWYjr3Ssf3QdAZP7ACGe (Newly generated, not in bitcoin-qt)

The key should be valid.  I use walletpassphrase first to unlock the wallet.  What am I doing wrong?

When I get that it usually means that the key is already present in the wallet.
Try removeprivkey and then reimport.

Do you perhaps have an encrypted wallet file?
If so then my you need to run: bitcoind walletpassphrase YourWalletPassword 2000

A currency dependent on secrecy fears the truth.
