  6. I followed this guide:

To export a private key from your Satoshi bitcoin-qt client:

launch your bitcoin client as usual and wait for it to load the blockchain and start up
click on 'help' in the menu bar (top right)
click on 'debug window'
select the 'console' tab
type: walletpassphrase "your walletpassphrase here" 600
type: dumpprivkey [your public key here]
this will return the private key, you can copy it now; ensure you clear your clipboard/history afterwards
type: walletlock    }

All it says in the console..

safemode,warning what is not displayed may be incorrect
might need to download upgrade, and nodes   code-2

I want to access my coins via blockchain website. My operating system is Windows; the client is bitcoin-qt version 0.8.1.

How do I export these keys?
