How to install and run Bminer on Windows
Go to the download page for Bminer and download the latest Windows version.
The file name will depend on the software version, right now it’s called “bminer-v16.4.11-2849b5c-amd64.zip”.
Download that file and extract it on your PC.
If all is good, it should look something like this:
As you can see, the .bat files for many supported coins are already in the folder.
Edit the file for any coin you would like to mine, with Notepad++, Notepad, or a similar plain text editor of your choice.
Bminer supports pretty much any pool, so it’s up to you to choose the pool that works best for you.
Whichever you choose, it should provide you with the URL, as well as your username and password.
In this example, I’ll be editing the “mine_raven.bat” file, so I can mine Ravencoin.
And that file should look like this:
If you have a Ravencoin address, use it as that’s where your mining earnings will go.
If not, you will have to create one and then enter it.
Change the pool and port, in my case it is:
Also, change the password for your pool, in my case, it’s “x”.
In the end, it should look like this:
@echo OFF REM Change the following address to your address SET ADDRESS=RC6cCVfw45pWoobrntEyCYmxpi9H786D3d SET USERNAME=$ADDRESS.w SET POOL=eu.rvn.minermore.com:4501 SET SCHEME=raven SET PWD=x START "Bminer: When Crypto-mining Made Fast" bminer.exe -uri %SCHEME%://%USERNAME%:%PWD%@%POOL% -api 127.0.0.1:1880
save the “mine_raven.bat” file and then double-click to run it.
