Ok, so if you recently downloaded Nice Hash and are having trouble installing the program, this guide should be able to help you out. First of all, this guide assumes that you have some idea how to use computers and you are a little more advanced than the average bear. E.G if I say you need to unzip a file folder and extract the contents, and you don’t know what I’m talking about or have never heard of something being zipped, then you probably don’t have enough experience to go through with this so just stop now and do something else 😉
That being said, the first thing you need to do is download the zip file for Nice Hash and extract it to your hard drive. Create a folder, something like C:/nice hash and then make a shortcut to the Nice Hash legacy exe from your desktop. Simple. The legacy version does not install to the system, you just extract it to your hard drive and then run it when you want to use it. If you are trying to run the program from the zip without extracting it, it will not load or work!
OK, now if you are having problems loading or executing the legacy exe file, check in your task manager if it’s running or not (CTRL + ALT + DEL) if you don’t see it running anywhere in your processes then the program is not running, you did not execute it properly. You may need to run Nice Hash as an administrator, if you don’t have admin privileges on your PC you should probably not be running Nice Hash anyways because you don’t know what you’re doing.
Once you’ve extracted the legacy exe file just double click it, it should load no issue. Once inside the program, you’ll need to benchmark first before you can start mining. Benchmarking will check to see what algorithms are the most profitable to run against your GPU’s, you only need to run benchmarking once for Nice Hash to learn. It does take some time and it is a little noisy
