I think that you configured the batch file incorrectly. It seems as if your batch file is beginning with a call to cgminer when either

A) You don't even have cgminer installed, you didn't mention installing it whatsoever. Download cgminer, and relocate the batch file in the application directory.

B) Your batch file calls cgminer, and it can't find it. Either move the batch file to the cgminer application directory for cgminer, or go in and edit the batch file to call either 'cpuminer' or 'cudaminer' (this should be the first word in the file) depending on which .exe you want to run.


edit your batch file for correct info, this is mine

cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://world.wemineltc.com:3334 -O Iron_Mafia.1:x

with Iron_Mafia.1 being my workers name

then :

then x being my password


This is windows telling you it doesn't know where the cudaminer program is. One fix would be to move your batch file into the folder where cudaminer is located. For instance, mine is C:\Users\....\Desktop\cudaminer-2013-12-10\x64 (would be ...\x86 if you are on 32 bit windows)

Oh, I see you are trying to use Cgminer. Fix is the same, just figure out where cgminer is located and put the batch file there.

Alternately, you could add the cgminer directory to Windows PATH statement, but it is probably already quite long.
