I borrowed a Windows computer from someone and used
monero-wallet-gui on it to create a wallet stored in the default location of
I then copied the wallet directory from
%USERPROFILE%\MONERO to my computer, but this time
monero-wallet-gui complains the wallet password is invalid, whereas it still works on the borrowed computer.
I know this is not the expected way to recover the wallet. Why does it not work on my computer? Does
monero-wallet-gui use Windows user session data for encrypting wallet files with passwords? Is there a way to recover the keys without borrowing the computer again? Both
monero-wallet-gui versions are above 0.15 and the wallet was generated last Monday.
