Sorry, I totally missed that when I was reading the message earlier.

Let's see what we can do....
  • Create a folder somewhere. I have mine set up this way: "c:\aliquot\auto\"
  • Go here and download Aliqueit 1.12
  • Put Aliqueit and either miseve.exe or yafu.exe (or both) in the "auto" folder
  • Put a copy of GMP-ECM.exe in the folder, too.
  • Edit the aliqueuit.ini file to point to the exes:
    Code:
    //Executables
    //
    //Name (and path, if needed) of your gmp-ecm executable.
    ecm_cmd = ecm
    
    //Name (and path, if needed) of your yafu executable.
    yafu_cmd = yafu
    
    //Name (and path, if needed) of your msieve executable.
    msieve_cmd = msieve
  • Set a cut-off for the switchover to msieve/yafu:
    Code:
    //Use GNFS for composites >= this many digits.
    gnfs_cutoff = 99
Now that you have everything installed, let's test things out. Try this and see what you get:
Code:
aliqueit 840
In a few minutes (or more, depending on speed) you should get the complete sequence for 840 ending with this:
Code:
 736 .   c4 = 4600 = 2^3 * 5^2 * 23
 737 .   c4 = 6560 = 2^5 * 5 * 41
 738 .   c4 = 9316 = 2^2 * 17 * 137
 739 .   c4 = 8072 = 2^3 * 1009
 740 .   c4 = 7078 = 2 * 3539
 741 .   c4 = 3542 = 2 * 7 * 11 * 23
 742 .   c4 = 3370 = 2 * 5 * 337
 743 .   c4 = 2714 = 2 * 23 * 59
 744 .   c4 = 1606 = 2 * 11 * 73
 745 .   c4 = 1058 = 2 * 23^2
 746 .   prp3 = 601 = 601
Sequence merges with earlier sequence 601.
(The last line may be different if you have detect_merge set to false....)

I put the binaries in the folder with aliqueit to keep the paths simple, and I keep the qs/nfs cutoff kept pretty high since my dual-core can handle large composties nicely with yafu dual threaded.

Let me know if you get it working this far.
