I can't get the ccminer to run on my Windows 10 machine

  • Masters of Nodes

    I must be doing something wrong. I downloaded the ccminer.exe. I try running it and my Windows Defender interferes. I even whitelisted it and it still doesn't let it run. But I am just trying to execute "ccminer.exe". Does this need to be executed in the terminal window with parameters? I was just double clicking it on my desktop.

    Could someone help point me in the right direction? I'm frustated and I just want it to run.



    Watch instructions on the pool you gonna use:


    You need to create a .bat file to execute the needed command:


    I used this for cpuminer:

    cpuminer.exe -a keccak -o stratum+tcp://eu.3dcoin.xyz:5133 -u <your_3dc_address> -p c=<name_to_regonize_your_miner>

    O.K. so when I unzipped the GPU miner my Windows Defender Security Center "quarantined" it and when I went in to release it from quarantine I read what Windows was worried about. It is saying that it contains a virus named: TrojanDropper:Win32/Sirefef.gen!C

    I clicked on more details and this is what Windows is telling me. Is it possible somebody has added a virus to the builds being offered for downloading?

    If I wanted to compile the source code for this miner does anyone have knowledge of how I would go about doing that?
