How can I set up Windows mining software?

Windows node requires the following software installed on the rig:

  1. Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013
  2. Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2015
  3. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 (already included in Windows 10)

You can set up Windows node with the following steps:

  1. Disable your firewall*.
  2. Disable antivirus (Windows Defender)**.
  3. Download the latest software.
  4. Unzip the content and open the installer.
  5. Follow the installation process.
  6. Open the shortcut.
  7. Enter your access key and worker name.
  8. Click on button [Start mining].

* The firewall can disable the API port, preventing the Windows node to fetch the stats from your miner.
** Windows Defender and any other third-party antivirus software can sometimes block different mining clients.
