Default Msieve 1.10

I downloaded the binary Windows executable file for the new Msieve version (1.10) and changed the .exe file but when I stop and restart it, it won't use the previous data in msieve.dat: instead, it deletes the file and starts a new one. Unfortunately, when I saw 1.10 working properly, I deleted the 1.07 file, which was working properly.
So, could anyone help me with version 1.10 (like posting a correctly working binary for Windows) or just post the old 1.07 executable? Thank you for your time.

I obviously meant "when I THOUGHT that 1.10 was working properly".

If you still have the logfile from your 1.07 run, compare the "using multiplier of X" line there with the "using multiplier of Y" line in the 1.10 version. If they are different for your factorization, then you cannot restart your 1.07 job with 1.10

If you're in a position to build from source, you can force the choice of multiplier to match up between the two versions, and then restart will work as expected. If both versions already have the same multiplier, then it's a bug and I can try to find out what's going on.

Hope you didn't waste too much work,

Thank you for your reply. I obviously did not make myself clear: I actually STARTED this run with 1.10 but when I stop it, it won't use the msieve.dat file. Instead, it creates a brand new one so wasting all previous computation, so I suppose there's a bug, at least in the precompiled binary for Windows. I would use the 1.07 which has always worked as expected but I don't have the executable anymore.

I follow now. Can you PM me the input you used that caused this behavior? Does it happen attempting to restart from any factorization?

I sent you the input file via PM. Oddly enough, for other inputs the computation resumes correctly.

Still trying to get to the bottom of this (your input works fine for me). In the meantime, anybody who sees suspicious behavior from the latest binary can revert to
