Bitcoin Directory - BTCDir

opening an old wallet.dat

I had about $8 USD worth of bitcoin in a wallet, and I backed up the wallet.dat to my dropbox. According to the modified date of the file this was in April 2013, so it was probaby from bitcoin qt version 0.8.1, or maybe a little earlier.
I basically left it there and haven't done anything with bitcoin since then. Since it is worth probably at least $100 now I decided to check the exact amount.
I downloaded the latest version of bitcoin core, added the wallet.dat file to the data directory, started it with -rescan, and waited almost a month (!) for the blockchain data to get up to date. The balance showed as 0 the whole time. I thought it would update once the blockchain was totally downloaded, but it still just says 0.
Is this a problem with old vs new versions? Did I do something wrong? Next time, should I expect the balance to show a non-zero amount even if I haven't downloaded the whole blockchain yet?
Update: ok, I feel kind of dumb, turns out the transaction was made in a multibit wallet, not a bitcoin qt wallet, but I still have a copy of that too. I opened the wallet in the latest version of multibit classic, and it has the receiving address in question, and checking the address on I can see that it received the transaction... but the transaction and the balance both don't show in the program. I wonder if I need the same multibit version I had before? the transaction was made in feb 2014
Update 2: was able to use the private key to sweep the balance into electrum
