Cgminer issues [Error -1: Getting Device IDs]
« on: March 10, 2013, 03:56:13 PM »
I am new to mining so bear with me, I tried getting it to work but I can't seem to get started. I used cgeasy to create the config and as far as I can tell everything is set up normally but when I execute the start.bat script this happens. (modified the bat file a little though.

After which cgminer crashes. (stopped working)
Any idea's? I've been trying to fix this for the last 2 hours but to no avail.

This is my bat file:
Code: [Select]
cgminer -o http://localhost:9332 -u username -p password --intensity 13 --scrypt --shaders 1536 --gpu-threads 4 --gpu-platform 1 --temp-target 66 --thread-concurrency 8000
I am trying to mine on an XFX AMD HD6970 at stock settings. I am using catalyst 13.2 beta drivers and have installed the AMD APP SDK package. OS is windows 7 ultimate x64.
Any help would be appriciated.

get rid of the gpu platform setting and try again. - Most recent mining contract - Sample reporting sheet
