Hello bitcoiners,

How does one run a miner in the background on startup without the Command Prompt window showing up?

Best regards,

probably exactly what he is doing.

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

Maybe I just want to mine while performing tasks on the computer ? Grin

Let's not kid ourselves, you can use it for the good an the bad.

My intention is to use it on friends computers and give them money in return, while they can still perfectly perform the regular tasks on their pc.

Assuming you're not trying to hide mining from the user, you can use CGWatcher to start the miner window hidden or minimized, then set CGWatcher itself to start minimized or minimized to the system tray. CGWatcher can be set to start with Windows, and it can be set to launch the miner on startup. A splash screen is still shown because it is not intended to be used to run the miner covertly.

On top of that, you can do the following with CGWatcher:
  • Set it to increase intensity when the computer is idle, and lower it back when the computer is no longer idle
  • Set it to start mining when the computer is idle and stop mining when it's no longer idle
  • Set it to decrease intensity or stop mining when a specific program is running (e.g. BF2.exe)
  • Set it to increase intensity or start mining again when the specific program stops running
  • Set it to disable a device when a program is running or when the computer is not idle, and re-enable the device when the program stops or computer is idle
  • Schedule mining to start and stop at specific times
  • Schedule profitability mining where it will switch to mine your most profitable coin (or a variety of other coin-related properties)
  • Use online config files, even between several miners, so you can change settings in one place, then use variables on each miner to customize the config to that miner specifically
  • Use CGRemote to have complete control over mining and profiles, including remote miners
  • Many other features and settings to make managing miners as easy as possible
