I use GUIMiner to mine bitcoins using my graphics card, and in a pool. I've upgraded to Windows 8 this morning, but now GUIMiner won't launch!

All I get is the icon in the taskbar for a few seconds, and it disapears. I have no error message, no windows, and no error logs.

I have tried launching the application as an administrator, and in "Windows XP" and "Windows 7" compatibility modes.

How can I fix this problem?

  • What happens when you launch it from the command line? If you can get some kind of error message, post it on the GUIminer issues system. – Colin Dean Jan 28 '13 at 0:00
  • Moreover, I'm not sure this question is a good fit for SE. It should actually probably better be filed there to boot. – Colin Dean Jan 28 '13 at 0:00
  • This is getting weird, nothing is shown when launched via commandline either – Manu Jan 28 '13 at 0:01
  • I think you're best troubleshooting this on the issues system linked above. I had a friend try on Win8, and it at least starts up. – Colin Dean Jan 28 '13 at 1:55

    Yes, it feels like I'm the only one with this problem. I've added an issue. – Manu Jan 28 '13 at 10:30
