Windows crapped out on me so I reformatted the HD and installed a fresh copy on Win 7 Pro (32 bit). I installed GUI Miner and now when I run it it says "DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found." It then never gets past "Connecting..." mode. Is there some other component to Windows that needs to be installed for it to work? Just messing around and using the CPU for mining for now. Firewall is tured off. Can't figure out why on fresh installation of Windows it won't run.

Console info:

Have a read through this. I'm fairly confident that this is a problem with your GPU since you said CPU mining works, so if you're not running an AMD GPU install the latest drivers for your GPU.

NVIDIA Drivers Download.

@Xch4ng3 - Thanks a bunch! I had seen that but I have an nVidea video card that doesn't support OpenCL so I didn't think I needed to download that SDK. That did the trick.  Grin
