A little insight would be appreciated.
I am trying to re-install all my Bitcoin stuff on a new harddrive. Bitcoin client is up and running and re-downloading the blockchain as we speak.
I also reinstalled GUIminer. The first time, I extracted it to my desktop and opened it and began mining with no problems. Then, I attempted to move the folder from the desktop to my program files folder. Then chaos ensued. First, it told me I couldn't transfer the folder because I forgot to close my miner. So, I closed my miner. It still wouldn't let me transfer the files to that location.
So, I restarted my computer and tried a fresh extract to the program files folder. It still wouldn't let me .... I get some long diagnostic message essentially telling me to fuck off and that it only likes to be extracted to the desktop.
So, I re-extracted to the desktop. The problem is, when I try to open GUIminer, the program appears on my task bar but it won't open so I can see the app on my screen. I even tried tossing my entire GUIminer folder in the recycle bin, dumping it, and redownloading and extracting. The same problem keeps happening: GUIminer appears as running in my task bar and in the processes list in the task manager. Why is this happening?
