Suggestion for those having problems mining with GUIMiner..
GIUMiner has a tab called Console, It shows you the run commands it uses..
So, What I do when I hit Start and FOR SOME REASON ITS NOT WORKING
and i don't know why.. What I like to do is copy the run command.. go into cmd and run it that way.. then you have a DOS window that will show u everything thats going on.. it's helped me solve the stupid problems! like a simple flag or typo..
If you go to View>Show Console on GUIMiner
then when u hit start..
Check the Console windows and copy everything after Run Command:
should be like C:\where\your\miner\is\phoenix.exe -u blahblhahblahb
copy this.. open cmd.exe, and right click, select Paste.. hit enter and it should run phoenix in thee cmd window..
you should now see whats actually going on with phoenix..
side note: you could just paste the run command in Start>Run but if there is a problem starting the miner the DOS window will pop-up and close immediately.. so open cmd.exe first so that when the program closes it return you to C: prompt with dos window still open so u can read errors..
hope this help troubleshooting GUIMiner..
also, i recommend phoenix riser over GUIMiner ANYDAY!http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=10264.0
