    Cgminer is not running properly on windows, however I can get mys tats after I quit.

    When the part that says blocks solved = 2, what is that telling me? I am certainly not getting any coins :)

    Make sure you run it from a separate cmd.exe window and not underneath a terminal emulator like ConEmu and the like. cgminer uses curses which doesn't work correctly under terminal emulators.

    The easiest way to see if you actually found any blocks is to look at the dcrd log. You will see something like "Accepted block submitted via getwork: 00000xxxxxxxxxx".

    Thanks Dave. I have not found any blocks based on your indicator.

    regarding cgminer, I am running from another cmd.exe. Tested.

    The symptom is: after a brief blurb there is a cls and it just stays an empty command line window until "q" to quit.

    interesting with -T flag set I can see hashrate, and for the first time got a message pool not providing work fast enough.

    besides the obvious, what else could that be telling me?
