Hello guys,

for testing purposes I want to mine with my CPU only using cgminer on a pool (stratum protocol) with a Windows Machine. As I read, the newer versions don´t support CPU mining anymore and the last one that did should be 2.11.4.

So I downloaded 2.11.4 from http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/ but what ever cmd line I try, it always says "no devices detected".

Can somebody help me please ?

Or maybe somebody knows a working cpu miner for Windows that supports stratum.

Thanks a lot !

hi

at first just download the client from 50btc.com it was easy to use and can do cpu mining.
also you can take a look at bitminter.com

but i hope you know that cpu mining brings you nothing... its only wasting energy no profit you will gain

best regards joe

looks like i was in a few seconds late:

If it is just for a test.
GUIMiner is probably the quickest and easiest that lets you select your pool.
Bitminter is even easier and java based, but is in fact a bitminer pool product so it connects to that pool.

IF your miners do not see your CPU you may need to install the opencl sdk that supports your processor.  How old or new of a PC is it and what processor is it?

GUIMINER works great.

Thanks a lot !!!  Smiley
