Download cgminer 3.7.2 with GPU support for Windows

31 Jan


It seems that the author of cgminer has removed the compiled Windows version of cgminer 3.7.2 from the official download location here and you may have a hard time finding it at a different safe location. The cgminer version 3.7.2 is the latest version of cgminer with GPU mining support, all newer versions are designed for use only with SHA-256 ASIC miners for Bitcoins and will not work on GPUs for scrypt mining. So if you are mining for Litecoin or other alternative scrypt crypto currency you would need to download cgminer 3.7.2 in order to be able to use your graphics cards with it. The official download location only offers Linux versions of the cgminer and that goes not only for version 3.7.2, but for most older versions that also support GPU mining. So if you need to download cgminer 3.7.2 for Windows you can do so from the link below.

You can download cgminer 3.7.2 with GPU mining support for Windows OS here…

Ok – this works!

I’m using latest sdk & amd drivers APR-2015.

This is the only miner to work with any amount of success, that I’ve seen. (Litecoin), and I’ve tried half a dozen versions. Including 4.x.x.

Some example scores from my Alienware laptop:

C:\cgminer-3.7.2-windows>”My Miner2.bat”

C:\cgminer-3.7.2-windows>setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

SUCCESS: Specified value was saved.

C:\cgminer-3.7.2-windows>setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

SUCCESS: Specified value was saved.

I have a problem with this program
the program says: the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). click OK to close the application.
before this error, the program says it can’t find the opencl.dll
after that I install that dll file
now you say what am I doing to use this program?

October 26th, 2017 at 06:21

@akmal just use NiceHashMiner if you want bitcoins fast lmao

I’m pretty new to mining bit coin and I’m pretty sure its “easy” in the sense of setting it up but not actually getting a coin. I just wanna know how my software will tell me when i actually get a coin. do i need to always be watching and its say something or what. Or if you could just tell me what it looks like inside the bitcoin generator.

I am new at bitcoin mining……This app doesn’t work…..please help me.


September 25th, 2018 at 04:16

A good introduction to bitmining is at You can setup for the first time to use your CPU if it supports AES or SSE42. Also any Nvidia graphic cards the has 5.0 + computations can be used as well. Easy way to learn bitming till your ready to advance your knowledge. Minimum needed is Windows 7.1 sp1.

K, have an older laptop running Windows 8.1. Want to set it up for GekkoScience 2Pac BM1384 USB bitcoin/SHA256 stick miner and CGminer 3.7.2 was recommended. However, when I open the program to set my pathways to my mining pool and name, I am not able to find the .bat file to change the pathway. Anyone have any clues how to do this in Windows 8.1? I am currently at a lose and need the extra eyes for help, it probably staring me in the face.


September 26th, 2018 at 02:56

K, got as far as getting to the pools now. But now recieving ‘closing socket for stratum pool 0’ repeatedly. Any ideas?

Got the drivers for the usb card from downloading Radig. Also created my own .bat and used the -t command to help troubleshoot. But stuck again.


September 26th, 2018 at 09:16

Mijnil, don’t think you can make standard cgminer 3.7.2 work with GekkoScience ASICs, try with a build that has a driver and support for the device included:


September 26th, 2018 at 19:36

That is the site location that recommended the CGminer 3.7.2 to begin with. In the how too section it states ‘At the moment, you will need to build cgminer with the latest gekko driver to mine with the 2Pac.

The driver is under active development in an fork of ckolivas/cgminer.
A pull request will be redirected to the ckolivas/cgminer repo once the code approached a stable point.’ I then wrote my own .bat and got the stick to connect the pools, but now am having a ‘Closing socket to stratum at pool 0’ code. Found update to CGminer, 4.9.2 which has site setup but receive same code. Currently researching into command lines to see if I can find any that will help to tweek.

Trying to connect to Nicehash, tried 7 different stratums. They work on my other chips but the 2pack is having trouble. It is a nice challenge though and helping me understand more about bitmining.

how to mine with gpu 1 all are mining with gpu 0 please help me in this

I have 6 Gekko 2Paks set up in two powered hubs. I am using cgminer 4.10.0 running at 30G each. You need Zadig to set up the correct drivers for the 2Pac’s. USB2 and USB3 hubs are unstable when you have more than 3 miners per USB port. Its an Hastle Ajusting the voltages each speed you choose the same thing you have to fine tune the voltage pot down to a fraction of a turn. The more miners per hub the more dificult it is.
I just run from CMD window CD to where you want to be and
cgminer -o stratum+tcp:// -u 3D1kzg1Lv7j7hZikMCiSffZrY35ScLRETV -p st33 –gekko-2pac-freq 278 –suggest-diff 10000 .
and off it goes Screen shot showing even sugesting 278 gives what you see below. The difficulty of 10000 or 10K just shows only the block you solved above the 10K limit but lowering it will effect your work rate. You can try 5000 you will see more blocks solved and counted but over a hour or so just note how many Accepted and the amount of Work Units/min.

You can look up about Zadig and where to find cgminer 4.10.0 so if this helps and you want a go do the next step and become a Bit Coin Node.
Become Part of the Big Picture of Decentralised Cash. There is some talk of giving a fee to those running Nodes just giving up a bit of disk space and some Network activity. Can run safely in the background of your system. You can run everything on a cheap laptop/desktop running win 7.
But with mining I have changed my speed from 200 to 250 then to 278 I have erned about £12. so when my next payment comes through I am going to try Solo Mining with ckpool and run a complete Bitcoin Node on same system. If i find a block I will get a lot more than £12 but the chance of that happening are lottery remote. But with running a full node I may get a better chance. If you like this my account is up there put something in it. Thanks.
