This happened with both a K80 and a P100.

You've gone from using Msieve on hardware that's too old to using Msieve on hardware that's too new. The result is probably the same :)
I'm still playing with old, but the Colab instances give me a playground with the new. I've no familiarity at all with Visual Studio. The Colab CUDA is 10.1 ATM, with 10.0 still instaled. I have succeeded in getting the ECM-GPU running, in the Colab sessions and, in fact, I have been compiling it with my msieve attempts, although I don't know if there's any advantage when compiling msieve with ECM=1. I'm mostly doing it to try to prevent the Colab complaint that I'm not using the GPU, while trying to compile msieve.

Thanks for all the help. Off to play. . .
