This bug repeated itself on a different computer. I downloaded v30.3b6 on a separate computer, directly from Mersenne.org (not from a flash drive). when I restarted P95, it gave me a new PRP assignment.

Code:
PRP=XXX,1,2,332316437,-1,79,2

There was a link to a command line version that some have reported worked OK. Try https://www.dropbox.com/s/xo7psmmjfk...SX.tar.gz?dl=0

They spend a large amount of time doing other peoples CERT work. Is there a setting to ask the server for just PRP and skip all these CERTs for other peoples PRPs?

Test | Worker Windows... uncheck: Get occasional proof certification work

Alternately, set CertWork=0 in local.txt

You can also see under Options | Resource Limits... | Advanced... the setting Certification work limit (% of CPU time) if you want to do some Cert work but less than you're currently getting. With default settings your CPU shouldn't spend more than 10% of it's time doing Cert.

This seems to be a Windows 7 Pro issue only. Clicking the "OK" button in the upper right corner produces the inset message. Clicking "OK" on this message highlights the value in the dialog beneath in blue. I have this shaded in bright yellow. The only way out is to click "Cancel" on the larger dialog. I have learned where most of the setting involved are in prime.txt and local.txt, so I adjust them manually. Attached Thumbnails

I have the issue on Windows 10, too. It seems to be caused by the program limiting the size of the "Emergency memory" to at most quarter of the total RAM available but has some rounding issues (or issues when getting the size of installed RAM) so it won't allow exactly 2 GB when having 8GB total, but only 1.99951 GB. Or in my case, 7.97949 GB out of 32 GB, instead of 8GB.

I have tested it, you're absolutely right. If you put in a number which is in the range required by the error message, it will accept it, but it will round it to one decimal place.

In my case, 8 is bad, as well as 7.9999, 7.999, 7.99. 7.98 is still bad, but 7.97 is good, and it gets rounded to 8 when I apply the setting and open it again. 7.95 gets rounded to 7.9.

 2020-11-02, 18:30 #473 storm5510 Random Account     Aug 2009 22·13·37 Posts Windows 10 did not give me any problems. I just checked. It is set to 1. I have never tried any fractional values, like 1.5. In this case, I would have gone into local.txt and set the value to 1536. For some reason, I always use powers of 2 for things of this type, although I do not know why. Regardless, I am pleased a few here paid some attention to this.
