my Blockchain.info wallet is the 2nd (WIF-based) converted from the old one which had Bitcoin-Qt Format export.
(unfortunately I have upgraded and there is no backward)
I have the 2nd (WIF) format
I can get
Key Formats: WIF, WIFC, HEX, B64, B6, MINI, BIP38
but no Bitcoin-Qt Format…
Okay so the link says this: “If the compressed address is desired/needed the Private key will generally start with K or L, if the the uncompressed address is desired needed the Private key will start with 5.”
I went to CW and created a new wallet and displayed the private key from the first pre-created address:
This one starts with K so these appear to be compressed WIFs.
You need unencrypted compressed private key for CW.
Does your key start with a letter or number (K/L or 5)?
I’m sure there are utilities out there that can convert from one private key format to another. Just disconnect yourself from the Internet when you use them. For extra security you could do it in a disconnected VM and delete the VM after you’re done. VirtualBox is free and so is Debian (or Ubuntu or other).
I found this tool here, I’m not sure how well it works.
Edit: I updated the FAQ on this topic. bitcoin-tool works as well as bitaddress.org.
thank you bitaddress.org was the solution, but the first time last week there was a java graphics issue and I have not seen a context menu for right mouse click
now after a reboot I have seen it and can sweep…
