Thanks for that. Typical of AMD to screw up something like 4 out of every 5 driver releases in one way or another.

I've updated cgminer to 2.8.5 on all my 5 rigs (all with win7 x64 and 7950+7970 cards), with --fix-protocol key it seems to be the most stable version i've ever seen.
Without --fix-protocol cgminer sometimes stops if internet connection is broken.

Seeing a little improvement on my 3x Crossfile 6950 setup. Before when a card crashed windows crashed out cgminer. Now it just kills the one card, and the other 2 seem to keep mining.

Thanks. Can you at least describe what you mean by "stops"? It's really supposed to reconnect. Unfortunately windows sockets don't quite behave like real unix ones so once again I'm forever adding workarounds for windows.

I can confirm that the lastest version doesnt work in Windows 8

As soon as cmd windows open from batch file, it will be auto closed

i.e. you need to at least open a command window and run it from there to see what's wrong ...

It may be windows, it may be you, or it may be cgminer ...

I've been running cgminer in windows 8 pre-release for quite a while.  the hardest part was getting a driver that worked.  once I got it working, I left it alone and refuse it to touch it.  every so often it randomly reboots, and vnc stops working after a while, but as long as it keeps mining, I don't care.

I can confirm that it works fine in Windows 8 x64 Smiley  Been running 2.8.5 without a hitch since I installed it this AM with Catalyst 12.10's.

I've been thinking why not hard code the --fix-protocol into 2.8.6+ since it seems to do the job very well. (and add a --no-fix-protocol option instead?)

Because Stratum will hopefully be the default mining protocol soon. Better to get the bugs out of the way now.

Works the same for every simple boolean option in cgminer:
(if you look in your cgminer.conf at other examples)

Since the option (as per the README) is --fix-protocol then you use:
Code:
"fix-protocol" : true

You need to add a comma after it if it isn't the last one ...

CGminer crashed on me again today with an error message "Cgminer program has stopped suddenly" or something to that sort.  Anyhow, I could see behind the error message popup, and it looks like Cgminer put a GPU to REST mode, and then tried to re-enable it, and this is when it crashed.  I'm currently on W7 with version 2.8.5.  Thanks!

REST is usually due to an overheat event, unlike SICK and DEAD.

Thanks for the reply.  I don't think that REST and re-enabling a GPU should be causing it to crash.  I'm currently mining on a pool that uses var diff also.  Not sure it that help.

I wasn't saying that was necessarily the cause of the crash, but it's worth noting that you had an overheat anyway.

I got a share that registered a diff of 7.58M  Grin

That was a block solve for mtred since current difficulty is just over 3 million. Smiley
