    Not had that error but it looks like you are trying to graphics mine on your cpu.
    Shot in the dark, but you're not trying to run an .exe file inside the GPU are you ?

    I'm using this software: https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer/releases

    Downloaded it, did a simple config with user, pass etc. and currently running it. I'm afraid I'm hasing for nothing here. Any hints or ideas?

    I don't have any Nvidia mining setup atm, what I suggest is try some other versions, goto step 5 here, there are some useful links for alternative miners,

    start with the sp_mod version, it is updated,

    That'll happen occasionally. nothing to worry about. I've been mining for almost a year with 2 GTX 970's in 2 PC's. Once every few minutes (on both/either comptuers) I'll get an error that one of the hashes from one of the GPU's didn't validate on the CPU, but I still get plenty of shares from my mining pool.

    If I had to guess, maybe it's overheating or something related causing one of the CUDA cores to malfunction *shrug* but it verifies the hashes on the CPU (Presumably for this reason), so it's not really an issue unless you're getting it a lot.
