Tool that automatically extracts official P2P port and genesisblock data out of daemons.
This is part of Spreadcoin's "Altcoin Taxonomy Initiative".
Read more about it here: http://spreadcointalk.org/index.php?topic=730.0

Download:

Win (32bit): http://www.spreadcoin.info/downloads/genesis-extractor.zip

Quick Guide:

Unpack the zip-file somewhere. Click on GenesisExtractor.exe to start the tool.

For the tool to be able to process daemons, it requires that you put atleast one altcoin-daemon in the /daemons folder.

You can add any daemon you like, and if you can't find a daemon for the coin of your choice you can try with the qt-wallet.exe.
(Note: some coins come with a few external dll's they make use of. They simply won't work correctly without those external dll's).

Alt text

Once there are daemons to process, they will appear in the "Available Daemons" list.
(You might need to restart the tool to rescan for daemons you just added).

You can now click "START EXTRACTION" to start the tool.

Alt text

Please note that during the extraction operation you might see external windows appear and disappear.
Don't interfere with this process.
Any process/window that is opened will also be closed automatically later.

And it's possible that your firewall will ask you if you want to open the port that the coin is accessing.

You don't need to open any port, since the extraction-tool will recognize what port the coin is trying to use, even when said port is closed.

BTW: All daemons will be forced to create their blockchain data in the folder /temp that comes with the genesis extractor.
So there will be no polution of your harddisk with all kinds of folders.

Alt text

Now the tool is processing one daemon after the other, until the queue is finished (all jobs are done) or something unexpected happens, like one of the daemons you are trying to use is non-standard and can't be used with this tool.
If you encounter a non-standard daemon please tell us about it here: http://spreadcointalk.org/index.php?topic=732.0

Once all jobs are finished, you can copy/paste the data into our forum: http://spreadcointalk.org/index.php?topic=733.0

Have fun!
