I did some RVN mining last year, but switched to mine-ETH-buy-RVN as it was getting me better results.
However, I think the pendulum has swung again and I want to mine RVN directly. I'm using the "spare" time on my gaming rig GPU, hence am mining through Windows.
When I was mining RVN previously, I had Bitdefender AV, but I've dumped that because it was annoying me. I've moved to Kaspersky, which has been better, but…
I have the Kawpow miner downloaded, and I have added it to the exceptions list in Kaspersky. I have a batch file that launches Kawpow with the pool settings. When I run this through an admin-level command prompt, the command prompt says "access denied" and quits immediately. If I run the Kawpow executable with no arguments, it loads and tells me there are no arguments specified (so it looks like I can actually run the executable).
Kaspersky logs a threat not in "kawpowminer.exe", but in "cmd.exe". I'm not sure I want to add the entire command processor to the exceptions list, but also when I toggle the various Kaspersky features on & off, I still get the issue. Also, I have manually added an outbound allow rule in Windows Defender firewall.
Do any of you know what I'm doing wrong, what step I've missed? Cheers!
