    @zac123 Don't know why it died, but set it up with a looping batch file so if it dies, it'll restart:

    Creep.bat:
    :loop
    creepminer
    goto loop

    H.



  • I don't usually have any miner down and I almost only use windows, but surely I agree that killing all the things that shut you down on Windows is not straightforward for the most... I must say I never had any miner exiting without an error on Windows so what I usually do is just a bat with the EXE and a pause in the end so it catches the error for me.
    So when I do changes or something I catch the issues and usually if I kept solving them, at some point, I have a pretty stable system... That's how usually goes for me with Burst Software... On Linux is a bit more reliable on the code you are running, instead of the code that its "running for you"...

    @moverspool I totally get where you come from but I believe someone that knows how to manage Linux nowadays, knows how to keep any Windows version to rebooting so the @haitch bat should be enough for most Windows users to keep it working...

    ok thanks everyone for your help.

    it crashed this morning so i looked through the event log and found this at the same time of the crash:

    Faulting application name: creepMiner.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5b3f72f4

    i think the .bat idea is good. i'll do some research today and see if i can put one together.



  • ok so i'm trying to put together a .bat file as suggested. this is what i have so far:

    tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq creepMiner.EXE" /FO CSV > C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log
    
    FINDSTR creepMiner.EXE C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log > C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log
    
    FOR /F %%A IN (C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log) DO IF %%~zA EQU 0 GOTO end
    
    start C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\creepMiner.EXE
    
    :end
    
    del C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\search.log
    del C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\found.log
    

    i then run a scheduled task every five mins.

    problem is it seems to open up a new instance every time it runs regardless of whether the miner window is open or not

    creep.bat:

    @echo off
    :loop
    C:\Users\Burst01\Desktop\creepMiner-1.8.3.0-win64\creepMiner.EXE
    goto loop

    ok thanks. that looks a little simpler than mine. so i should schedule a task to run this? or just use this to start the miner?

    again tho, this just seems to ignore the fact that the miner is running and it opens up a new instance



  • @zac123 just use this to start the miner

    ok done, lets do some burstin!! 🙂

    @zac123 Just use it to launch the miner - if the miner dies for some reason it'll loop around and restart it.
