Hi all,

I previously got bitcoin working on a mac computer along with GPU mining, but when I try the same on windows I can't even get a preliminary "khash/s" in the bitcoin program nor do I see a button or dropdown option for starting to mine.

If I set my bitcoin.conf to autogenerate, then I see a "Generating" status, but nothing happens even if left overnight.

Any thoughts?

Ah thanks, that explains it;

I was under the impression that if I run the bitcoin client, then it provides a server for a GPU miner to connect to?

I'm using GUIMiner and it's giving me constant "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC"

Do I need to install some library/other software on my pc that macs usually come with?

Mikerz,  you might also want to look at right clicking on the short cut and select 'run as administrator' that usually works with the bitcoinclient software on Win7

Well, thanks for the suggestions I'll try out running everything with full access as well as a different gpu miner.

According to the calculator, it should still be profitable for me considering i'll have .5-1 GHash/s at my disposal with multiple machines

How are the average yields in pools? I've avoided them because it seems like I would be putting in the same amount of processing for a potentially much lower yield.
