I have this transaction that won't go through, and because of address reuse, I'm not able to create any new transactions until I get this transaction to go through.

Before the newest version of the wallet came out, I tried reattaching and rebroadcasting this transaction, and then waiting a few days/weeks, and then trying again. I've tried attaching to multiple different nodes. Nothing I do is able to make my transaction go through. I've upgraded to the newest version of the wallet now, but still no luck.

If I reattach, and then promote, after 30 minutes or so, the promote option goes away, and I'm only able to reattach again. Is this normal?

This answer mentions bad stuff happening if a reattachment gets attached to a previous reattachment. I wonder if that is what is happening. How would I know if this is the problem?

I was able to get it to go through. I used this tool to automatically promote/reattach every 30 minutes, and my transaction has been confirmed now.
