Is anybody familiar with this problem using btc qt debug console?

Would like to dump wallet and sweep into electrum.

  • What is the exact command you're using? – Pieter Wuille Jan 6 at 2:56
  • Dumpwallet. To a created txt file on my C drive. Don't know what the problem is. What does code -8 mean? Should I use a certain type of txt file? Should I stop syncing my node while doing it? Any help would be great. – requim Jan 6 at 20:25
  • Well you need to pass the file name to dump to, how are you soecifying that? – Pieter Wuille Jan 6 at 21:04
  • In the debug console i type Dumpwallet C:\...\... – requim Jan 6 at 22:42
  • Should I stop syncing? I'm getting a new error now. No longer "code-8" – requim Jan 7 at 14:35

You need to enclose the filename in quotes.


dumpwallet "C:\output.txt"

As opposed to:

dumpwallet C:\output.txt      (wrong)
