Hi Kano,

I was trying to upgrade from 2.7.6 to 2.11.3

I followed your procedure to update BFL device driver to WinUSB.  Downloaded zadig (for Windows 7), run it as administrator.
I got an error installing WinUSB driver.  Here is the Zadig debug log:

http://www.petermoss.com/akbash/zadig_install_log

Can you add FTDI driver support as an option?  As it is now, I can only use 2.10.5 version.

You'll have to ask the zadig devs.

The FTDI driver blocks direct USB access with libusb, that is why WinUSB is required.

You mean libusb just requires a non-standard driver on Windows.
It does on Linux, too, but libusb has a feature to request the standard driver shutdown (which you're using).

Thankfully, people who want sane FPGA/ASIC support can continue to use BFGMiner, the original FPGA/ASIC miner.
Who knows why anyone still uses your troll fork.

CGMiner has nanosleep and sleep declared, which fucks the build for x86_64-w64-mingw32. Also, pthreads are not listed in the dependencies, and there is no option in configure to specify the prefix for pthreads.
We don't support building for w64 since it serves no useful advantage over 32 bit windows builds.

Iin fact ming w64 is an unstable development branch and 64 bit builds use more ram and are less reliable.

How lucky am I? Is this an easter present from our friendly local christian to come trolling my thread again? It seems the forum mods are even on your side and refuse to accept your posts as trolls, nice to see lack of impartiality there. Let's see how long this post lasts.

I don't lie. Anyone with a clue can clearly see that an occurance of bricking a controller with a test build clearly marked as possibly having that effect, is not remotely the same thing as "BFGMiner ... brick mining hardware", nor does one person mentioning the result as such make it "well known". Too bad you're too busy trolling to have a clue.

That is software that you posted on the public (crappy) bitcoin wiki on the avalon page for people to use ...
You have also ALREADY got in your clone miner the software for the BFL ASIC hardware that is COMPLETELY UNTESTED.
The hardware doesn't exists yet.
Everyone using your crappy clone miner has that completely UNTESTED code in it.
Your complete lack of testing your crappy code was one of the main issues that you used as an excuse to clone cgminer - when you wrote crappy untested changes to the icarus code that you NEVER tested on window - and it didn't work at all - it locked up cgminer - and you ranted about me overwriting your code that didn;t work ... then decided to clone cgminer and change the names and the donation address:

No, you and Con decided to fork the project because he was upset over the announcement of ASICs.
Yes, clearly-labelled alpha releases might be broken! That's to be expected. That's why they're alpha.

That's no reason to continue using deprecated technology. CGMiner could also be a 16-bit binary.
You missed the point. CGMiner is also deprecated software for deprecated technology (GPUs).

Well, if you consider the fact that shortly, when indeed GPU mining will be deprecated, that the crappy clone will ONLY be using the old termios serial IO libraries that were designed around 30 or more years ago, meanwhile, cgminer has been updated to use the libusb library to talk directly to the USB devices rather than via the old serial libraries that put an old interface in front of the USB devices and restrict access to most of the USB functionality ... yes it's quite clear that the clone is old technology and written using the serial library because the guy who wrote it was not only fail in programming ability he chose the simplest interface with the most restrictions coz he had no idea what he was doing ...
