Corrupted Wallet.dat ? Need help

Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:41 am

Hello,
I hope somebody can help me. So my problem is that i can't import my wallet.dat into my bitcore 0.15.1, since 0.12.0 i can't import it it says that it's corrupted. But when i import it into my bitcore 0.8.0 there is no problem, but i can't get the privat key of the adress where my bitcoins are inside just from the adresses where i did some transactions.
The adress that i want encrypte is not shown in the transactions it says (k.A) .
And when i want to gets the private key from the 0.11.0 version it shows me the transactions and the adress, but when i try to enter the passphrase it says. Error :Wallet/crypter.cpp line 189.
Is there any chance to restore my bitcoins ?
Thanks

...
If so (my previous comment) you may try renaming the .bak file to wallet.dat.

After that the passphrase should be restored to the previous passphrase.

NOTE: make sure to save the .dat file that you already have to another location or change name temporarily so that if anything I've recommended doesn't work you can reserve everything to how it was when you posted this thread.

I'm not exactly sure. However, I recommend taking a look at this over at github:
