Automated Foreman Upgrades

Foreman has been updated with the following new features and improvements:

New Features

We’ve overhauled our Windows installation process — we present to you the Foreman Windows Agent. This new agent will automatically install, configure, and upgrade Foreman for you, eliminating the need to manually download and unzip Pickaxe every time a new release is published.

New Users

Follow the guide here to get up and running. That’s it — you’re done! 🙌

Existing Users

You’ll need to migrate from your current Pickaxe:

  • Download the latest Windows Agent zip from our GitHub and unzip it.
  • Open conf\foreman.txt and enter your Client ID and API key — that information can be found on your dashboard here.
  • Run bin\service-start.bat. If it says it’s an unrecognized app, click More info and Run anyway. When it asks if you want to allow it to make changes on your device, select Yes.
  • A new Pickaxe will appear here once it’s up and running.
  • Move your miners from your old Pickaxe to the new one:
  • Grab a 🍺! Now your Foreman applications will automatically upgrade and you’ll have access to our latest features as soon as they’re released!

Stay tuned for more updates! If you have any questions, contact us on Discord, Twitter, or send us an email!
