Cant send coins

I tried to send some coins from a V2 wallet …the coins didn’t arrive and I discovered it was not possible with the v2 wallet.
Initial transactions were done on laptop then i moved over to desktop for troubleshooting not realising having same wallet on two pc’s can cause problems.

I have since done a wallet reboot and a walletzap run …coins apear back in my wallet and the bad transactions have been cleared in tx list but i am unable to spend

Can you explain what you mean with “wallet reboot”? What steps did you take?

Walletzap = starting Reddcoin Core with -zapwallettxes=1?

What do you mean with “not able to spend”? What happens, what do you see on your screen when you try to do a transactions?

Which version of Reddcoin Core are you using? (Help -> Debug window.)

Can you explain what you mean with “wallet reboot”? What steps did you take?

I reinstalled everything and then pasted wallet.dat

Walletzap = starting Reddcoin Core with -zapwallettxes=1 ?

yes i did this

What do you mean with “not able to spend”? What happens, what do you see on your screen when you try to do a transactions?

when i try to send i get a message coins already spent error
rdd3

Which version of Reddcoin Core are you using? (Help -> Debug window.)

v3 but i sent coins on the v2 wallet …this is what caused the problem

“Reinstalled” is ‘installed/upgraded Reddcoin Core’ I assume…

 

Try these steps: Also sent coin, but nowhere to be found?!

 

  • Make a backup before you start. Do never skip the backup step.
  • With the instructions above you will remove and download the blockchain again. This will make sure you’re on the right/new chain.
  • You’re already on a v3 wallet, but update to the latest version (v3.10.2) if you’re running a previous v3 version - download from here: https://download.reddcoin.com/bin/reddcoin-core-3.10.2/ (would recommend the win64.exe in your case).

 

Let me know the results.

Any updates on your issue?

didnt work still cant spend

What didn’t work? You need to tell more… We can’t see what you see, we only know what you tell us. And there is not much possible with “didn’t work”.

Which steps did you take, were they all successful? What do you see? Do you get any messages? Is there something different than before?

There are some other things you can do, but we need to make sure your blockchain was reset and is now synced back again fully. That is what happened right?

What do you see in your transactions list? Any troubled transactions? All transactions are confirmed, no stuck transactions?

Continuing previous post…

  • Make a backup of your wallet (just to be sure).

  • Please start Reddcoin Core with -rescan (only once).

  • After that, start with -zapwallettxes=1.

Let me know the results…

i was able to make 4 transactions of 100 but the larger amounts wont go through

it seems if i exit the wallet then open it up again i am able to send more small amounts

Please open Console (Help (menu) → Debug window → Console) and enter the following:

getchaintips

 

I am interested in “status”, so what do you see in Console?

Okay, “status: active”, which is good news, you’re on the correct chain.

Now, have you executed the steps from my previous posts?
-rescan & -zapwallettxes=1

Also, you’re running your wallet only on 1 device, right?

hi , yea i’ve done a re-scan …i have moved from laptop to desktop when i first realised coins where not sent …
should i move back to laptop ?

You’re making it hard for me by not answering the questions fully.

When troubleshooting, you check the possible issues and solutions one by one. You check and verify solution 1, if that didn’t help, you proceed to solution 2. And so on…

For example, I asked if you did -rescan AND -zapwallettxes. Only received back that you did -rescan. I can’t continue, because I need to know if you did -zapwallettxes=1

 

The other thing is, I will contact the devs if we can’t find a solution together. In that case, it helps to know what you are experiencing (reason I ask so many questions) and which steps ypu already took… If basic troubleshooting is done right, it saves time later…

 

So:

  • Make sure to backup.
  • Please do a -reindex, then -rescan, followed by a -zapwallettxes=1` (so, do all three of them).

 

No need to move to another computer. Make sure your internet connection is stable, and only run the wallet at one device at a time.

 

And then let me know of you still have issues spending your RDDs. In that case, I’ll contact the Reddcoin developers.

Hi , i pasted -zapwallettxes=1 in the short cut tab and this is how i did the re-scan …

It might be best if you have 3 shortcuts and then run them when needed:

  • 1 for Reddcoin Core (regular/normal)
  • 1 for Reddcoin Core with -reindex
  • 1 for Reddcoin Core with -rescan
  • 1 for Reddcoin Core with -zapwallettxes=1

 

So, if I understand you correctly, you have:

  • Started Reddcoin Core with -rescan
  • Closed Reddcoin Core (exit).
  • Started Reddcoin Core with -zapwalletxes=1
    (Optional: closed after this, and started Reddcoin Core normally.)

 

Yes?

 

And, did you do this:
→ Please do a -reindex , then -rescan , followed by a -zapwallettxes=1` (so, do all three of them).

If not, then:

  • Start with -reindex first. Then exit Reddcoin Core.
  • Then, start with -rescan. Then exit Reddcoin Core.
  • Then, start with -zapwallettxes=1.

What is the result of this?

hi , the only way i know how to do a res-scan is buy pasting -zapwallettxes=1 in the short cut target tab …and then open wallet ?

so i may not have followed that exact order …?

…im not sure how to set up separate shortcuts

Reddcoin Core installs in the ‘Program Files’ or ‘Program Files (x86)’ folder by default.

I assume your Reddcoin Core install folder is C:\Program Files\Reddcoin Core.
That folder should have a reddcoin-qt.exe file.
Please check if you can find the folder/file.

 

  • Open the folder of where reddcoin-qt.exe is in.
  • Right click on the .exe file and select ‘create shortcut’.
  • There should be a new file on the folder, the shortcut. Right click on the shortcut and select ‘Properties’.
  • In the properties screen, there is a ‘Target’ field. It should point to the location of the reddcoin-qt. The value is between " " → add a space and -rescan behind it. So it will look something like this: "C:\...\...\reddcoin-qt.exe" -rescan

 

  • Above example is for -rescan. Repeat the same steps for -reindex and -zapwallettxes=1.

  • The end result should be:

  • 1 shortcut with -rescan ==> "C:\...\...\reddcoin-qt.exe" -rescan

  • 1 shortcut with -reindex ==> "C:\...\...\reddcoin-qt.exe" -reindex

  • 1 shortcut with -zapwallettxes=1 ==> "C:\...\...\reddcoin-qt.exe" -zapwallettxes=1

 

After this, you can use the shortcuts as I mentioned in my earlier posts.
