I am trying to open Bitcoin Core of "Cannot obtain a lock on C:User/App..." I deleted the lock. file like previously suggested but cannot find a solution after that! If I reinstall will I loose the Bitcoins sent to me or can I use the same address but on an online wallet and will it receive the coins? Thanks for the help!

  • Did you rerun Bitcoin after deleting the file? – Nick ODell Oct 19 '15 at 21:50
  • After the deleting the .lock file I did re-launch Bitcoin Core – Finn Oct 19 '15 at 21:51
  • Did the .lock file reappear after that? – Nick ODell Oct 19 '15 at 21:52
  • Not that I can see! – Finn Oct 19 '15 at 21:54

    What's the rest of the error message? What is the exact name and path of the file you deleted? What version of Bitcoin Core? – Nate Eldredge Oct 21 '15 at 13:54
