Ok here is my sitation.
I have some ETH that was stored on an old laptop.
I have not run the wallet application for well over a year on the old laptop but I do have a backup of the keystore on my new one so I should not need to update the software and watch it try to sync for days I assume on the old laptop?
Instead I want to migrate over to using Mist from Ethereum Wallet using this keystore on the new laptop. I assume that possible is it?
Downloading and installing mist just gave an error and told me to update to geth 1.8.23 so I did that. I am running latest version of windows.
When I now run mist I don't get the error but it's stuck on "connecting". When I click on the red dot in the bottom corner it says "Local node looking for peers" and "remote node connecting" but never connects.
What are my next steps and why isn't this working?
Also how to I import my old keystore when getting past this part?
