So, I got Multibit. But I couldn't import the old .dat wallet. Am I missing something?
Then my computer crashed. Finally I was able to get my computer fixed and download a new version of Bitcoin-Qt. Now I would like to import my original wallet.dat from the old client which was encrypted into an new version of Bitcoin-Qt.
But when I went to bitcoin site I saw that the client was different and very heavy. The site recommend to install Multibit. I got Multibit, but found out that I couldn't import the old wallet.dat, they wanted a different format.

In fact, this just happened to me after dusting off my old wallet.dat file from 2 years ago.
I had a really hard time converting my Bitcoin-QT wallet.dat files to something that is possible to import to Multibit Wallet. (Not that hard but stupid to go all that way for something that should have been simple) So I ended up writing a python program to do so from now on.
Select the 'Import Wallet' option on the left hand side. Paste your private key export from MultiBit Classic in the text area and click the 'Import Wallet' button. Enter your Blockchain.info password when prompted.
