That error indicates a corrupt database, possibly the blockchain. 


You can try going to " \users\<username>\appdata\roaming\Goldcoin (GLD)\"

and then deleting these files:
database - folder
blk0001.dat
blkindex.dat

do not delete any other files.

Then restart your GoldCoin client.  It will have to resync the blockchain and may take a few hours.

Good Luck, let us know how it goes.

Hi!

Following up on the same topic.. I have an old (~3years)  file wallet.dat  and copying it into "Goldcoin (GLD)" directory as suggested above (tried all the above suggestions..) still doesn't help to recover my coins.. Is there any other way I could try to get to my old wallet?

Thanks!

If there are any coins on the wallet, the above method posted by Stouse49 will recover them.

Be sure to close the client before following his directions. In your case, you will also want to rename the existing wallet.dat file in the roaming folder, and replace it with the wallet.dat file you wish to recover. Then, restart the client and allow it to fully sync with the network.
