Hi Guys,

I am going to get a bunch of this lingo incorrect but I am very excited to learn. I have read stuff for a few hours today and I DL'd phoenix for pooled mining (currently running the out of the box on the Bitcoin client.

How can i use the command lines;

phoenix.exe -u -k poclbm DEVICE=1

with phoenix....where do i put these? In the kernel files for phoenix? what editor do i use to open them?

when i run the phoenix exe i just get a quick popup command window and then it closes, I assume its because i have not configured the files correctly.

I would appreciate any help, as I'm in wayyyyy over my head here.

Thanks for anyone spending time. And I would donate BTC as soon as I get .01 hahaha.

1. You can use any text editor to edit the file, ex Notepad.
2. Put your file in the directory where your phoenix.exe is
3. Did you install the OpenCL lib? The script cannot be run without this. For AMD card, install Stream SDK.
4. I recommend using Linux over Windows for better performance & easy of config.

Use Win+R and type cmd. Press Enter.

A console window will appear. Go to the path where you stored your Phoenix installation.

For example, place Phoenix into C:\Phoenix\

then, use commands:

cd Phoenix
then, run the commands .. test various options and find optimal combination

store the combination into BAT file (textfile with extension .BAT)
later, run that BAT file (you can create a shortcut to it from desktop).
