wallet.dat – pycrypto or libssl not found, decryption may be slow


Your image shows two messages:

There is a message

ERROR:root:Couldn't open wallet.dat/main

It suggests you should close Bitcoin if it is already running. I would use Windows’ task-manager to see if bitcoin-qt, bitcoind etc are running (Ctrl+Alt+Del in Windows-10 should bring up a menu from which you can select task-manager). You can close those processes from task manager if necessary.

Since your screenshot shows a second attempt without this error, it looks like you shut down Botcoin-qt OK and the command completed OK.


and

WARNING:root:pycrypto or libssl not found, decryption may be slow

This is just a warning, it doesn’t mean that the command won’t work, just that it may take longer than normal.

The message suggests pywallet will use slow internal cryptographic functions if it doesn’t have access to a fast external library of cryptographic functions.


So your wallet.txt file should show you the information you wanted to extract.
