Were you able to figure this out?

Maybe someone from BTCT can help, if not. I cannot provide any assistance, unfortunately.

I know this is an old thread, but if some people have the same error here is the reason.

The first time you start sgminer it will compile the OpenCL Kernels,
so you will have to let it run for a while and let it do its job.
(you can see in the task manager that during this time the sgminer will have high CPU usage, so just let it do its thing)
