Hi All, I'm trying to find a compiled version of cgminer (preferably for windows 64bit). Something I can download as a zip file or exe.

Alternatively if anyone could give me some advise on what to put in my .bat file for the cudaminer I already have that downloaded but I've been trying to get that to work all day and it runs but won't connect to anything. If you could suggest some parameters for the .bat file for the cudaminer this would also be helpful.

They are available at this site:

But it is down right now.

I personally prefer BFGMiner which is a fork of cgminer, so a lot of the commands are interchangeable, but I prefer the interface of BFGMiner. (Plus, the download links aren't broken right now.

How are you mining?
What Pool if any?

Open Notepad

Add the following
cgminer -o stratum+tcp:// -u UserID_worker -p ****

This is setup for BitMinter so you need to change to your pool. Replace the userid to yours and the _worker to yours, and the password to yours.

>Go to File,
>>Sava As

>> At the "Sava As" screen, write the following and change type.

File Name: StartMining.bat     <<< make sure you add the   " .bat " at the end.
Save as type: All Files            <<< make sure you select this option. you only have two options so make sure.

Switch to BFG is simple and if are using Erupters it will detect them.

How to...
install it.
Unzip it, create a batch file with the command I posted below and your good to go.

Download from HERE ONLY!

Create a Batch File (.bat) in your in windows.
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp:// -u UserID_worker -p ****
This is setup for BitMinter so you need to change to your pool.
