Hey Community,

i`m running an internet cafe (i own this cafe) with 10 Workstations.

On normal business days the HD5770 inside could mine for me.

At the moment i`m using a logon script to start a hidden ufasoft miner. This works well while a customer is surfing. But my Cafe Domain System logs the customer off when their bought time is over. - Mining stops then until the next customer logs on their

I tried all possible Any2Service / NSSM / FireDaemon / PSEXEC / Startup-Script Methods of letting a mining software run on the windows service account (as a service) -  but non of them works.

Do you have any experience with that? Any working solutions?

At the moment i run Windows 7 Pro 32 on the machines (going back to XP 32 is no problem - if you have a tip for me i could try that - images and licenses are here)

Any help would be nice.

Bye,
dsky

No chance to GPU mine under Vista/Windows 7 - I found a Thread on a Folding@Home Forum where a Moderator explained that Vista/7 have security settings to prevent the System-Account to access the GPU.

So it seems that i`ll downgrade to XP on the weekend.
