So I am pretty new to Bitcoin although ive been lurking the forums for a while and ive got all my concepts down.

One I really want to try to do is mine. My machine i have right now only has an 8800gt Win7 64bit AMD 6000+ 3.0ghz so im not expecting any huge returns but i just think it would be fun to pitch in. (plus i dont have to pay for power)

I setup http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1334.0 <<< this miner and I am having some trouble getting it to start. I am positive i i put everything in the right place and I have entered all the right commands.

This is what i get when i start the .bat file, the cmd box immediatly closes after i open it.

start /DC:\bitcoin\poclbm_py2exe_20101214 poclbm.exe --user=dilpickle --pass=maddyy --device=0 -w 256
File "poclbm.py", line 3, in <module>
File "pyopencl\_init_.pyc", line 3, in <module>
File "pyopencl\cl.pyc", line 12, in <module>
File "pyopencl\_cl.pyc", line 10, in_load
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found

Ive looked online but cant seem to find my error code

Thanks
Dylan

Just create a bat file & put it in the extracted poclbm_py2exe_20110204 folder where the poclbm.exe is.
The bat file of mine has this only

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\poclbm_py2exe_20110204\poclbm.exe -d0 --host=mining.bitcoin.cz --port=8332 --user=***** --pass=****

it opens command window & stays & runs.
I am in pool mine so use host & port address.

Since u not in pool, u have to use the username & password of the rpcuser & rpcpassword in the bitcoin.conf file. & no need for --host & --port
The bitcoin.conf file for windows 7 is C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin

For Windows XP:    C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Application Data\Bitcoin

Windows Vista:   C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin

I do not have this file anywhere.

Yes, the folder exists nowhere, coz in the place of "YOURUSERNAME"  u should put windows login username. ex: Administrator, Guest....
