Hi all, probably something stupid but I can't figure it out by myself;
I have installed bitcoin today on a machine with a nice nVidia GeForce in it and I wanted to use it under windows. For some reason though, nothing that I try makes a miner function.
I tried cgminer; which just collapses and dies with Windows trying to figure out what went wrong. No sane result in what way I try or whatsoever.
phoenix won't start becauses it misses pyopencl\_cl.pyd, but no manual whatsoever on where to get those and how to install it.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\phoenix>phoenix.exe -u http://---username---:----password----@localhost:8333/
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading pyopencl\_cl.pyd
Then I tried DiabloMiner. That one got me somewhat further, at least it started.

All it does is repeating the last message until I ctrl-c it.
If anyone has a sane way of installing one of these, please notify me. This really bugs me.
