    Hey all,

    I've been away and just come back to this change. Meaning the last time I operated a wallet I was using v0.11.1.25-gbdbdbf9-beta

    Now I don't quite know what to do here. Safest way to make the transition wallet-wise? I sort of fear I may have missed a boat or two here.

    Long story short. Install the new wallet and make sure that it uses your old wallet.dat.

    Sure, though maybe consider introducing less sensitive users in a less arrogant manner.

    1st make sure you have the original wallet.dat saved !! (Which had the coins)

    In user - application support check if you have a dash folder next to the old DRK

    Re wallet migration: I'm not tech-minded but would be grateful if Evan or anyone on here could help with a major migration
    issue?
    (1) I followed the video tutorial for a windows 7 pc as below
    (2) I made a back up of my wallet.dat before proceeding
    (3) I had previously downloaded the Dash Core wallet
    (4) I located the Darkcoin folder in Roaming as directed and changed its name to
    Dash. However, it wouldn't change as there was already a Dash folder in Roaming. Following
    the wizard I managed to change Darkcoin Folder to Dash.
    (5) As directed I opened up the Dash core wallet - no sign of my darkcoins! In fact the Dash core would
    not open properly (dialogue box mentioned no genesis blocks etc).
    (6) I deleted the empty Dash wallet and downloaded a new one
    (7) I went through the video tutorial again. Renamed the Darkcoin folder to Dash, opened the Dash core
    wallet, lo and behold no darkcoins or dashcoins!

    Could anyone please advise on what went wrong? Thanks in advance

    1. Close Dash core wallet.
    2. Go to Dash folder in Roaming.
    3. Locate wallet.dat there. Replace it with your backup-ed wallet.dat
    4. Start Dash core wallet and wait until it sync.
