Hi everyone,

Basically I picked up a old BFL Monarch from a member and it half works (as I knew already). Im just dabbling with it as ive only ever really used Bitmain gear before. Im trying to get it working on a windows 7 laptop but cant seem to get cgminer (or bfgminer) to run with it. The cmd window flashes open then immediately closes again.

Anyone shed any light? ive trawled through the forum but cant find anything.

Thanks.

You should probably post this in the mining software section, specifically in the stickied BFG miner support thread in that sub.

Open a command prompt and run your .bat file manually so it doesnt auto close the window on failure. Then you can see the error.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

It says:-

'bfgminer.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I can't see that ive written anything wrong on the bat file either.

I mananged to get cgminer working before but bat files that I knew worked now don't  Huh

Got a "Path=" statement in your .bat file that points to the correct directory?

I don't believe in superstition because it's bad luck

What does one of those look like?

P.S. If I hadn't already got my raspi running with my 2pacs and could just add in the BFL part instead of having to install cgminer on the pi all over again then I'd plug it in there lol

One of the lines in your .bat file should look like this:

Path=C:\folder1;D:\folder2

and so on.  Make sure your Path statement points to any and all directories with any software, config, etc., that you want to run.
And it needs to be ahead of the command that is calling bfgminer, of course!  Wink

Gotcha! I'll sort that out later and see what happens. Cheers for the help so far Smiley
