I followed this guide completely. http://www.newslobster.com/random/how-to-get-started-using-your-gpu-to-mine-for-bitcoins-on-windows
I am having a big problem. I followed everything that you have done but I can't get bitcoin.exe to open with -server. Every time, I get
Warning: to use the '-server' option, you must set rpcpassword = <password> in the configuration file 'C:/Users/Nick/AppData/Roaming/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf. If the file does not exist, create it with owner-readable-only file permissions"
I have already made the bitcoin.conf file in C:\Users\Allen\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin
multiple times. This is what's inside it
No matter what I do I can't start it. I've redeleted and remade the files several times over. I've restarted my computer. I've quadruple checked the directories and I'm 100% sure that the bitcoin.conf file is in the right spot. I've tried redownloading the bitcoin application and deleting my bitcoin folder inside appdata. Doesn't work. Everytime I start bitcoin -server I get the above message saying I have not set that yet I have!!! Even if I open bitcoind in the daemon directory, still does not work. Also, I believe at the cause of this, my bat file would obviously not work to, it says "Problem communicating with bitcon PRC". Also, I own this computer and I am the only user. I am also the administrator. I've tried running cmd with as admin each time. Nothing. Searched google and through these forums, no lead. Please help.
