CGMiner seems to be randomly closing. I'm running cgminer-nogpu on Win 8x64 with a BFL Little Single and 2 AMUs. It runs in a batch file that loops, and the batch file keeps restarting it, so it is closing nicely, and I haven't lost any downtime. I think it's done it about 4-5 times since I updated to 3.4.0, which was about 8 days ago? The newest one was this morning, after I had left for work. It had been running for about 2 days solid before that.

It never did this before. The AMUs are pretty new. Is it the AMUs causing it, or upgrading to 3.4.0, or both?
Hard to know without excluding one thing at a time? Try running the AMUs in their own instance and see if one the other or both crashes? Also there are debug builds which would help me find out where it's crashing and fix it.

Any version that uses the new USB drivers eventually crashes on me with mwsock.dll causing the error under Windows Sad


Update - confirmed after today's crash, same DLL listed above.. I have a copy/paste of the WIN7 report if needed... haven't run the debug build yet.. doesnt look like Ill have time to tinker until next week...   I think my latest run went a day and a half..

Hmm... but that's in the networking code, lemme look back at the changelog and see how that code might have been affected.

Hmm doesn't even look like it's crashing in cgminer, but can't tell for sure. Possibly related? :

Correct, it doesn't. -g is a global setting.

hello!
Cgminer works well with sha256, but with scrypt does not.
It shows 850 kH (it's too much, right?), with no sound/submitted shares for 3 hours.
Is problem in config or in driver?

Is anybody running more than 50 Erupters successfully with either Windows 7 64-bit cgminer or bfgminer? (latest versions...)  If so, how do your erupters appear in Device Manager?

Here's what I finally did to get 181 erupters online in Windows 7 64

1 - Reinstalled the operating system
2 - Installed all the drivers
3 - Installed any and all software
4 - Created a RESTORE POINT (IMPORTANT: Do not insert a single erupter before this point)
5 - staged 10 erupters in their usb slots at a time, up to 100 per bus (don't be fooled by separate ports on your computer, they may still be on the same bus).  A high number of USB devices will make your USB buses quite cantankerous and you should allow 30 seconds at least between device stagings
6 - Make sure they are showing up without error under the COM ports in the Device Manager. 
7 - launched a separate instance of CGMiner 3.1.1 for 10 erupters each (I find 3.1.1 is much leaner and more stable than later versions)

If for any reason I need to bounce my rig, I've found that the COM port allocations get messed up and eventually CGMiner can't find all my miners.  To fix this, I actually perform a system restore to my saved restore point.  This is the only way that I've been able to guarantee purging of COM port allocations and have a fresh start at step 5 above.

T'is a thing of beauty Smiley

Pretty sure you don't want to use a sha256 kernel when you're scrypt mining.  Definitely remove that, also try Aurum's posted advice.

4 - Created a RESTORE POINT (IMPORTANT: Do not insert a single erupter before this point)
I wonder, would you be able to do this with a virtual machine instead? Create a VM with just Windows 7, cgminer, and the drivers installed, then save the state.  Next plug in the miners and do the USB device forwarding. Then, if there's some sort of issue, just reset the virtual machine to the saved state each time. I guess the hard part would just be forwarding 181 USB devices to the virtual machine...
