Downloads

Releases of MultiMiner can be downloaded from the GitHub Releases page:

http://releases.multiminerapp.com

Note on Malware

Depending on your OS and configuration, it is possible (and even likely) that the downloads here may be flagged as malware or a virus. This is the case with most / all crypto mining software as it is often used in malicious ways.

While I cannot officially advise you to disable anti-malware or anti-virus defenses, it is likely you will need to do so to successfully download and install mining software.

If you have any doubts or questions, you can always download the source code and build it yourself.

Windows

  1. Download and run the installer (.exe) file at the above link and follow the on-screen instructions
Windows Setup Wizard

The installer runs without needing admin rights and does not install to Program Files so as not to be intrusive. However, if you prefer you can use the zip file:

  1. Download and extract the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.zip file at the GitHub Releases page
    • Not the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.exe installer, not the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.app.zip file, not the "Source code" .zip file
  2. Launch MultiMiner.Win.exe to get started

Linux Installation (Debian-Based)

  1. Install the latest version of Mono

     sudo apt-get install mono-complete
    
  2. Install BFGMiner using apt-get

     sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get install bfgminer
    
  3. Download and extract the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.zip file at the GitHub Releases page

    • Not the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.exe installer, not the MultiMiner-X.Y.Z.app.zip file, not the "Source code" .zip file
  4. Run MultiMiner.Win.exe using mono:

     mono --arch=32 MultiMiner.Win.exe
    
Main Screen - Linux

Mac OS X

  1. Install Xquartz available here
  2. Install the latest version of Mono for Mac OS X
  3. Download and extract the .app.zip file at the GitHub Releases page
  4. Launch MultiMiner.app to get started

MultiMiner will automatically download redistributable binaries of BFGMiner from the Xgminer-OSX project.

Main Screen - OS X

Troubleshooting

Note that it takes time for the X Window system to start on OS X. The first run of MultiMiner also downloads BFGMiner and scans for hardware.

If you are having trouble launching or using MultiMiner on OS X, you can get detailed information by either launching Console.app or:

  1. Launch Terminal.app
  2. Type: cd ~/Desktop/MultiMiner.app/Contents/Resources (assuming MultiMiner.app is on your desktop)
  3. Type: mono --arch=32 MultiMiner.Win.exe and press Return
