Hi, I've recently just started using Honeyminer. I use a i5 7600k and gtx 1060 6gb. My CPU is mining, but my GPU isn't.. Is there something wrong I'm doing? I've enabled both.. :(
in Honeyminer go to the settings gear (in the upper right hand corner) and click on it. When you do that you should see "Miner Console" at the bottom in the center of the window. Click on it. You should then see a tab at the top of a new window that shows your CPU mining titled [CPU] HoneyMiner_X.exe You should also see one that says [GPU] HoneyMiner_X.exe (assuming your using a Win version). If you do NOT see the GPU tab, you'll need to tell HoneyMiner to attempt the process again. Close the Miner Console. Next, go back to the HoneyMiner app window and switch off GPU mining, then switch it back on. Reopen the Miner console. You should now see the GPU's attempting to mine. at the bottom of the output you'll see:

Your .openclbin file will likely have a different name than what is shown above (the file name is everything after /.openclcache/) and will still end in .openclbin
What you'll need to do is go to Windows search and type in %AppData% In the window that opens you'll see
Change roaming to local and hit enter. You'll see a new list of directories. The one at the top should be .openclcache Go in to this directory and see if the .openclbin filename is there. If it is not, you have the same problem I have, that is that the OpenCL work files are not being downloaded and updated by honeyminer.
How to fix it? No clue yet. The automated emails I get show that no one is reading what I send in for tech support. I'm hoping that if enough people discover they have the same problem I do, tech support will take it seriously instead of recommending people downgrade their graphics drivers (which is where I started from, outdated graphics drivers).
Try an older version of the 1060's drivers, sometimes Honeyminer does not work with latest drivers. Remember to do a clean install.
