First time I downloaded it, it kinda worked, aside from the point that it kept saying "connecting" but wouldn't do so.
So I thought maybe I should close it and re-open it. As soon as I did close the application and re-run it, it came up with this error,
as well as this displayed in the error log. Any attempt to start the exe just increases the number of times this error appears in the log.
Someone help?  Cry

Code:

I would gladly post this error log in the proper topic and board but as the rules go, I can't.
after using the "Search" engine for both this site as well as google, I've only encounter 1 other person who has this problem, oddly he didn't seem to get an answer to his problem on the forums. Perhaps through PMs which would help if I could have the solution too. ._.

I also have this problem - no results when searching google, either.  Sad  I did try out Phoenix 1.5 today, by copying the new version into the guiminer folder, so I thought that may have done it, but I set up a fresh copy of guiminer 6/14/11 version, and it still won't work >_< 
Need some help please.

I'm using DiabloMiner under Windows.  It is command line, but really easy to set up.  The pools usually give you the command line examples to follow as well.

I have been too lazy to do any mining of my own, but I would wager that everything is summed up in the following line:
Code:
WindowsError: [Error 267] The directory name is invalid
Are you certain that you have all of your directory paths set correctly?  If it is a command line utility, beware of spaces in directory names.  Use "s around any path that contains spaces and see if that helps.  good luck.

-cheers
