No Passphrase issued during Install Win7 v0.16.0 (64-bit)


#1

I just installed current version of litecoin-core on Win7. Everything went fine. I transferred one coin to new wallet to test. good so far. Tried to send coin to another wallet form LTC-core and it ask for passphrase. Problem, I don’t have a passphrase. What now?

there is no passphrase issued at the install
you have to encrypt the wallet manually and confirm the password twice in order to encrypt the wallet…

did you get your download from https://litecoin.org ???
hopefully it is not a hacked installer…
I recommend downloading the latest version and if you don’t see your coins in the wallet then you need to replace the wallet.dat file in the Appdata folder with your backup and delete the current empty wallet.dat file
so…
if you have no passpharse then just push enter…or just restore your wallet using the backup that is NOT encrypted and send your coins to your self…
are you sure you installed the correct version for your machine? as in 64 bit for a 64 bit processor or 32 bit for 32 bit processor…
you can always just use the last working version and then correctly reinstall the newest one.
ALWAYS KEEP A BACKUP… OLD AND NEW!
if you loose your backup then your coins are gone!
