The message “You need to rebuild the database using -reindex to change -txindex.” is caused by the setting “txindex” in your config file.
Use the following instructions to fix this.
Note: replace “examplecoin” with the name of your coin.
1) Close your wallet.
2) Make a backup of the folder “%APPDATA%\examplecoin\”.
3) Remove everything in the folder “%APPDATA%\examplecoin\” except wallet.dat and examplecoin.conf.
4) Start your wallet.
