Re: No blocks downloaded... why? July 14, 2010, 04:22:03 PM So that was responsible for keeping blocks from downloading? The link: "Win32 CPU Cycles vs 'Live Protection' Engines" For BitcoinFX, Live Protection was keeping it from getting CPU for generating coins. You said your friend was getting 1400-1600 khash/s, so it was getting CPU. I guess Live Protection must have been blocking some other part of the program then?
