Hello, if you wish to use CPUMiner with Windows we have made a guide for you. But please note that we cannot support this endeavor any further than this, and we will not be held responsible for any damage that comes to your computer or products by following this guide as we only support the Raspberry Pi:
So first we're going to need to get the newest fork of CPUMiner: http://p.lewd.es/aFz8.zip
after you get this, extract it anywhere you like.
Now we have to plug in our ASIC, simply plug in your power then wait 10-15 seconds, and then plug the ASIC into your computer. After your computer has recognized the ASIC we need to check the COM port that its on. The easiest way to do this is through your computer devices. Click Start > Right click Computer > Properties > then Click Device Manager in the Top Left. Here is a step by step guide in pictures:
Now your Device Manager will pop up. It will look something like this:
Open up the Ports (COM & LPT) Tree to find your ASIC, it will be a STMicroelectronics Virtual COM Port(COM#)
Make note of the COM port number, in the above example mine is COM15.
Now we need to make our changes to the CPUMiner config
Open up the CPUMiner folder, after this look for the file that is called "miner-START.bat", once you have found this file, right click it and click EDIT.
Now we can see the config file for the ASICs and it will look something like this:
minerd.exe --freq=850 --gc3355=\\.\COM5 --url=stratum+tcp://ltc.give-me-coins.com:3333 --userpass=username.workername:pass
Simply change your COM# and your stratum url, username, workername, and password and click File > Save.
As you can see since my COM port number was 15 I changed it to 15 and I changed it to the zoomhash user and akagi worker.
After you have finished this, close the miner-START.bat and double click the same batch file (miner-START.bat) and let it run it should look something like this:
If you are seeing accepted shares then your miner is working!
