Configuration

Awesome Miner stores all configuration in the file ConfigData.xml located in the folder %appdata%\AwesomeMiner.

To copy the configuration from one computer to another, make sure that Awesome Miner isn't running and copy the file ConfigData.xml to the other computer.

In the Options dialog, the miners can be found in either Managed Miners or External Miners section. The pools can be found in the Pools section. From these configuration sections, miners and pools can be added, modified and removed.

Feature support

You must define which coin you are mining for the active pool. Select a miner in the list and open the Pools tab in the lower part of the screen. Select the active pool and click the toolbar button Define coin. Select for example Bitcoin or Litecoin from the list.

Issues

An action to send e-mail can be triggered multiple times if the trigger condition is true. In this scenario, replace the E-mail action with a Notification action. A notification can be configured to send e-mail (Options dialog, Notification section), but the notification can also be configured if it should be triggered multiple times or not (using the "Notify once" setting).
