    What can I do if everytime I try to run miner it stop responding and closes?

    I make sure that I use the corresponding miner for my CPU.


    Thanks.

    You still haven't given us the .bat or config settings.
    Btw, put a 'pause' at end of .bat file and you stay on the window.

    My .bat file:

    Code:
    minerd-corei7-avx.exe -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://us-east.multipool.us:3371 -u XXX.X -p X -t 1

    When I start the .bat file it stop work and gives me an alert window to close the program.

    I think you misunderstand how cpu mining works, you need to mine using a worker created as part of a pool of miners that work together to find dash blocks of around 6 coins (forget solo mining its too difficult to find a block)
    sign up to a pool then create a worker and place the worker details inside a .bat file that is part of your minerd folder.

    I sometimes use xpool, you don't even need to sign upto them, you only need to put any wallet recieving address in the .bat command

    minerd-corei7-avx.exe -a x11 -o stratum+tcp://mine.xpool.ca:1131 -u 'wallet address' -p x
    pause


    -a = sets the kernal

    you could try this software as well,

    Try another type of minerd.exe, your cpu may not support the i7 instructions and be careful with x11 and X11 for the 2 different miners when setting the algo and put a pause at the end.

    here is a new cpu mining thread which might help :)
