in windows 7 how to kill guiminer and start again every half hour?
just to avoid the hanging for whatever reason
A more in-depth instruction set(there were 6 posts while I wrote this but I hope it stills helps)
I ran into the same problem and ended up using a combination of task scheduler and a .bat file to do it.
Step 1: Writing the .bat file.
1-a: To write a .bat file you need to have file extensions enabled. You can enable file extensions by going to the view tab of folder options(If you can't find folder options just search it) and deselecting the hide known file extensions check box.
1-b: Now go to My documents, create a notepad file, and put this code in it.
@ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 -w 1000> nul
rem ---------------use the line below this to set the path--------------
Taskkill /F /IM guiminer.exe /T
Then adjust the path to the location of your guiminer file(make sure it's set to the FILE which contains the application DO NOT set the path to the application)
1-c: Then save the file and go back to My documents. Locate the file and change the name and extension to guiminer-restart.bat
Step 2: Setting up task scheduler
2-a: To find task scheduler just search it. Once you have it open select create a task.
2-b: Task scheduler is fairly self-explanatory you just have to set the task to run every half-hour after start-up in the trigger and run the .bat file as the action.
2-c: Task scheduler has also has quite a few options which are not mandatory take a few minutes to see if you want to use any of them.
Once you've done this just restart your computer and guiminer should start upon boot and restart every half-hour. If you have any questions let me know and I will do the best I can to help you.
