See the documentation in the readme.txt and config.txt file on operation of features.

Default SendCtrlCode unhandled exception

A user reported that CTRL-C resulted in an unhandled exception. This has been addressed and confirmed fixed.
The SendCtrlCode update is under the patches directory http://sdrv.ms/QsaP9Y
It has also been slipstreamed into the mfakktXapp-1.1.4 zip file.

cause determination:
The unhandled exception occurred when a Console.Write command was issued after the console was shutting down and could not longer receive such requests. (timing issue).
Solution:
Execute FreeConsole() after CTRL-C to disconnect from console and do not write anything else to the console.

Default mfaktXapp 1.2.4 released

change log
8/20/2012 1.2.4
Backups now stored in mfaktXBackups with improved names of backup files
"Add Work" no longer add directly to instance 0. Instead adds to a staging file mfaktXappToDo.txt
New button "Assign Work" which distributes the new work to the bottom of each workToDo.txt via round-robin
"Balance Work" modified to always keep first "Factor" row in the current file. This ensures mfaktX instances always resume on same Factor.
New menu item "Check for WorkToDo Duplicates" which will create a report of any items that are duplicates. (It is up to you to clean up the duplicates)
Improved string handling for rows in WorkToDo.txt files by trimming leading and trailing spaces.

"Export Results" now show size of exported file. (See limits of submitting manual results on the GIMPS web page)
"Launch URL" Allows launching of a single URL. (see config.txt for more info)
SendCtrlCode.exe updated to version 1.3.
Updated error handler and some code cleanup.

RE: File size
AFAICT, the 4K limit is due to the use of GET to transfer contents of the text box; upload file option can handle large files (3K lines of results at least).

hi swl551,
first thx for the little tool, it´s very nice.

some suggestions/questions.

1. could you add in the table a row of "found" or "factors found" (parsing the results.txt) ?

2. is it possible if user/psw is set in config to upload results directly without userinteraction with a interval?

3. by the way download new WU from primenet/gpu72 if gpu72 support that and user/psw is set in config and how many?

4. a little grafical "gimmick" like progress, percentage, todo, ghz-days total, ghz done, deadline of assignements, update notification, rss-feed (something else), log-reading....
maybe sorted in tabs/registers ?

:D

Norman

@NormanRKN
Thanks for the ideas. I will add some of them this weekend for sure...

I plan to automate fetching and reporting work, but it won't be for a month or so. My first run will be with primenet, then i'll explore the gpu72 thingy.

Default 1.3.1 beta available

Requires 1.2.6 be setup first as this is beta is only the .EXE . Full package will be uploaded if no issues reported with 1.3.1

Changes include:
Column for FOUND factors
Row for totaling each column
Progress Bar *
Auto-Resize grid and form as number of instances is increased

* NOTE on progress bar: Bar only considers the ToDo values. As ToDo goes down progress bar goes up. Restart of app or assigning work causes progress bar to reset. It is not feasible to consider the DONE values since you may add work before you submit results: A condition that makes the relationship between ToDo and Done irrelevant resulting in meaningless progress bar usage.

Default 1.3.2 BETA

Changed
Persist value of Progress Bar to file allowing bar to "resume" at last value on restart.

NOTE on progress bar: Bar only considers the ToDo values. As ToDo goes down progress bar goes up. It is not feasible to consider the DONE values since you may add work before you submit results or visa-versa which would cause the values between the two to skew to illogical conditions.

Any time work is added or balanced the progress bar is reset.
