    Hi all,
    I recently got into mining and was trying to set up a pool account so I followed the instructions laid out here: http://cpucoinlist.com/how-to/mine-darkcoin/

    After finishing the setup, I ran the minerd.bat file to begin mining and this is what popped up on the DOS screen (blanked out my password for obvious reasons):

    C:\Users\Dave\Downloads\xcoin-miner\xcoin-miner>minerd-1.2c -a X11 -o stratum+tc
    p://drkpool.com:3333 -u BLANK -p BLANK
    'minerd-1.2c' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    C:\Users\Dave\Downloads\xcoin-miner\xcoin-miner>pause
    Press any key to continue . . .

    Here is the version of the program I downloaded for pool mining: http://darkcoin.io/downloads/xcoin-miner.zip It says it's version 1.2c so when I created the .bat file, I typed "minerd-1.2c" as the version number on the very first line of the command line. Where did I go wrong and can anyone help steer me in the right direction so I can start pool mining? Thank you in advance!
