I am on windows7 x64. Installed bitcoin and the GUIMiner. Running the ATi (AMD) OpenCL posted in the GUIMiner thread.
I have changed my bitcoin.conf (C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin) to have my username and password:
I launch GUIMiner and tell GUIMiner to launch bitcoin client as server. I always get the "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC" although I think I have set it all up correctly.
I even have launched bitcoin.exe with -server (and even --server) after a friends recommendation. no avail.
I dont think port forward is an issue cause it is all local.
Anyone else experience this problem? Any ideas how to fix this?
Thanks for any ideas, I am at a loss here.
