I am trying. Read it multiple times. Still having trouble, but I'm working through it during the little time I have.
I would add to step 5 to manually set fans. On auto, the memory can get hot and throw errors.
I have a question on the .bat file. Mine does not start the miner. I get an error stating phoenixminer.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operational program, or batch file. Then it pauses waiting for you to kill the CMD window. I've been using the config file for the last few weeks and it is working well, but this does not set the allocation size, heap size, etc. Is there something I'm missing?
Ok.... some questions.
I set up a wallet, Exodus. I figured out through some Google searches how to get my wallet key or address or whatever it is. It exported to an Excel file, but it sent 2 addresses. More searching, looks like it made a regular and a change address? I used the first of the two for my address.
Watching this video on YT helped me figure out how to set some things up.
I made a bat file to set my environmental variables and executed that. It opened a CMD window and ran through those so quick I can't see it, but I'm assuming it set my variables as desired and those are now set and unchanged unless I manually change them - which it doesn't sound like there's any reason for me to do so.
Next I edited the config file. I created a line like this:
"C:\DOWNLOADS\Crypto\PhoenixMiner\PhoenixMiner.exe" -pool us1.ethermine.org:4444 -pool2 us2.ethermine.org:4444 -wal XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.Leviathan
When I click on the PhoenixMiner executable, it seems to flash to do something, but that's it. I try right-click and Run as Administrator, confirm to allow it to make changes, nothing happens.
I tried various permutations in my pool variables from changing the ports to from 4444 to 14444 and tried both ports with http:// and with https:// in front of them, as well as with the pause command in place or removed. I think having the .Leviathan at the end is just naming my worker, right? So if I look on a dashboard somewhere to see my operations, it will be named and I can identify it?
Where am I going wrong? I can't get it to actually start.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong here.
Ok so here is what I get in my CMD:
Phoenix Miner 5.5c Windows/msvc - Release build
Invalid option: "C:\DOWNLOADS\Crypto\PhoenixMiner\PhoenixMiner.exe"
Okok, I did it throught my bat file like you did and I get it popping up and trying to connect, but it is failing. But I can work on that, at least it's DOING something now!
