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):
  File "", line 123, in <module>
  File "Miner.pyc", line 75, in start
  File "", line 111, in makeKernel
  File "kernels\poclbm\", line 22, in <module>
    import pyopencl as cl
  File "zipextimporter.pyc", line 82, in load_module
  File "pyopencl\__init__.pyc", line 3, in <module>
  File "zipextimporter.pyc", line 98, in load_module
ImportError: MemoryLoadLibrary failed loading pyopencl\_cl.pyd

Then I tried DiabloMiner. That one got me somewhat further, at least it started.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\DiabloMiner>DiabloMiner-Windows.exe --url http://---username---:----password----@localhost:8333/

[19-7-11 21:25:05] ERROR: Cannot connect to localhost: Bitcoin returned error message: Bitcoin is downloading blocks...

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.

How long has it been downloading blocks for? You need to have all of the blocks before you can start mining yourself and at the moment, at least, there's around 137090 blocks. If your client doesn't have them all yet, try again when it does.
