I am new to the whole bitcoin thing and I have a few questions. I have downloaded the program from bitcoin.org. So I have my wallet adress and the program runs correctly on my pc. (I am using windown vista, and have a normal cpu)
Now I went to mining.bitcoin.cz and tried to follow the instructions. I made an account and downloaded a miner: jgarzik's miner for cpu's. I downloaded it, and ran the "minerd" document. But a window popped up saying it didn't work. What am I doing wrong? And how can I start mining?
Can you add a screenshot ?
