ABOUT BIT MOOSE
Bit Moose is a free, open source, Bitcoin mining assistant program. It allows miners to run under a background windows service. The package includes a GUI and console host. You can configure your miners from the GUI or modify the Settings.xml file yourself to fine tune adjustments.

Current Version: 1.0.0
Download Binaries
Download Source Code

REQUIREMENTS

- Windows Vista/7 (XP Untested) or Windows Server 2003/8
- .NET Framework 3.5


SCREENSHOTS

LITECOIN
Bit Moose acts as a process controller, so it's just a matter of configuring each miner to run appropriately within the service context. The full Bit Moose release includes cgminer which can be configured to miner for litecoins using the --scrypt argument. Please read the SCRYPT-README.txt file in the cgminer folder for more information about which arguments should be passed to cgminer in order to mine for litecoins. You may also want to see this thread. In the full release, this can be found under {Bit Moose Folder}\miners\cgminer\.

INSTALLATION

    1. Run bitmoose-gui.exe
    2. Click the menu item Service->Install
    3. Wait about 5 seconds for the status bar to show "Service Stopped".
    4. Configure your miner.
    5. On your miner, click the 'Validation' tab, and click the button to make sure it runs ok from a console.
    6. Click the menu item Service->Start
      - After the service is started, you should see your miner's output trickling into the miner's status box.
    7. Done.
      - You can now log out of windows and let your miner work behind the scenes!

KNOWN ISSUES

    On some NVIDIA cards, OpenCL doesn't detect properly in the miners when they are run from a service. I haven't found a resolution to this yet, but you may want to try changing the account the service runs under, or try adjusting some input arguments.

Great idea!

I would consider buying this for bitcoin if you could add a scheduler so we could start/stop the miners at certain times of the day, for example when the computers are in use.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

That's a good idea. I'll see what I can come up with, but no need to 'buy' it. It's free  Smiley

I actually started programming a service called http://minermanager.com that offered a similar thing.  An application installed on each mining machine that you could schedule/control from the website.  I didn't finish it though.

I made something similar , but strictly for litecoin mining on cpu's. Its a windows service designed to run semi stealthy =)
It also has a command and control element for remote managing miners.

I tried to do something like this some months ago, but gave up the plan, because of exactly this error. The ADL can't be accessed from within the windows service's environment, because of Session-Isolation. So the GPU-Monitoring/-Control features of cgminer won't work. You need to have a server process, which is running under a currently logged in user at the local console (RDP won't work either).

Hi thanks for the information everyone. Oddly enough cgminer works for my ATI card under the service, but I was unable to get my NVidia card to work for likely the reasons mentioned (although this could be due to the fact they are on different OSs as well...). I will look into the issue, it may be something I can tackle by using some different win32 api calls. I'll post an update within a week or so.

The mining part of cgminer worked for me to, too. It's only the fan/clock-controlling part, that doesn't work. In the posted log it complains about a mismatch between number of fan-controllable devices and overall mining devices.

Nice idea.. how do i add other mining software to it? I am running ZTEX's BTCMiner and cant seem to find a solution on adding it..
If that did work i would use that tool asap.

Works once you run the client. But if you close down the client it stops working.

If this project is still supported, is it possible to run the service only when computer is idle and stop when idle is interrupted?

First off, I'm running Windows 8.1. I didn't think it would be an issue, seeing that .NET 3.5 is enabled on my machine. If that's the reason I can't get this service to work, then let me know. Otherwise...

My error messages are as follows:

[1]   AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing
[0]   Intel(R) OpenCL
 Wrong platform or more than one OpenCL platforms found, use --platform to select one of the following



I wish to mine using my Intel i5 CPU. I have tried all three miner programs (from what I've heard, I need to use poclbm. Correct me if I'm wrong), but they all give me this error message. I have added the --platform argument in various manners to troubleshoot it. The closest I seem to be getting is when I start the miner in the console window under the Validation tab using the poclbm program with the following arguments:
-f 40 -d 0 -w 128 -v --verbose --platform 0 (I've also tried --platform 1 and a couple other combinations)

This gives me a console window that writes the following:

api.bitcoin.cz:8332 18/02/2014 23:43:22, Setting pool (worker name removed @
api.bitcoin.cz:8332)


When I leave this console alone for a minute, it actually begins to mine (though very slowly, around .300 MH/s. I was getting about 13.0 MH/s on another program, but I'd much rather have the service.) While this seems to work, when try to I Start this very same service, I get the error message I gave at the top.

Any ideas on how I can get the service up and running? And, if so, to bring up the speed of the hash calculations?

Thanks
