CPUMINER-MULTI: Windows 32 and 64, Linux


  • administrators

    This program allows you to mine coins and offers a multitude of different algorithms.

    CPUMINER-MULTI is a command line program, no installation is required.
    You must open a terminal windows to run it. Don't click on the executable file!!!

    The important parameters to know:

    • -t <number of threads to use>: If you don't enter it, the maximum of threads will be used. The program will display the number of possible threads you have.
    • -a <algo> : the type of algorithm the program use to mine.
    • -o <the stratum of the pool or proxy>
    • -u <your player name>

    You can use too:

    • -q : program will be less verbose.

    Modified release for Windows 32/64:

    The official CPUMINER-MULTI release doesn't provide the yescryptr16 and yescryptr32 algorithmes and the Window 32bits binary.

    However, LWOS installed a virtualbox machine with Windows 10 ; modified the sources for adding the yescryptr16 and yescryptr32 algorithmes and compiled the project with MS Visual Studio 2003 to build the executable. 🙂

    Version for Window 32 and 64 are grouped into a same zip file.

    For the CPUMINER-MULTI modified version, maybe, you need also to install once the "Packages redistribuables Visual C++ pour Visual Studio 2013"
    You can download it here: https://www.microsoft.com/fr-fr/download/details.aspx?id=40784
    Select the windows32 (_x86) or windows64 (_x64) file and install it.
