I've downloaded Alethone off the Ethereum homepage. I right clicked the file and installed it to my folder. Now when I want to run the program I open thew folder and click on alethone.exe. I've added my wallet address and have a master passphrase. Two windows open. One lets me know how much gas was used for a transaction I.E: i 16:29:50.271|eth slow import : etc, etc. The other window is the Alethone program.
I let it run for several hours assuming I have to download the blockchain. Seems to take forever. I still get a syncing message on the bottom. I clicked start mining.
My question is shouldn't I have to run geth or eth?
Is there any step by step guide to using Alethone?
Any help is appreciated.
