Re: No blocks downloaded... why?
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?
